“I’m not sure if the perfect board really exists, but I’m enjoying the freedom to collaborate with some of surfing’s most innovative shapers and designers.
It is a quest to create something different in a slightly different way that appeals to where I want to go on a wave. Discovering a new feeling under my feet, drawing a new line, or taking a completely different track on a wave is something I never stop dreaming about.
Now being able share and grow that idea with others is what keeps surfing fun for me.”
#DrawingNewLines since 2016
Three years ago Slater Designs was launched using the image above, showing Kelly on the Sci-Fi in Fiji, shortly before Stu Kennedy rode it at the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast.
Since then the Sci-Fi has remained a favorite on surf shop racks everywhere alongside the Omni, Cymatic and Gamma.
Watch below to see Kelly’s surfboard designing mind in motion as he tests two stock 5’9 Gammas; one in Helium and one in LFT.
Keep up with Kelly. Enter your email below for new boards, new videos and a new view of what Kelly is up to with Slater Designs.
