Product Details

The Slater Designs Gamma in Helium technology has been Kelly's go-to utility shortboard in 2017.

Over the last year Kelly has collaborated with several top shapers and experimented with different shapes and templates, but it has been his own creation which has stolen his attention.

Kelly's interest in CAD design has given him the opportunity to experiment and mess around with variables, test riding numerous prototypes until he arrived at the awesome Gamma, an all-round performance shortboard that he'll no doubt be riding throughout his 2017 campaign.

The Gamma has a very speedy template with a single concave running to a slight vee behind the trailing fin. The vee behind the back fin eases rail to rail work and the rocker and rail shape would be classed as "medium" in the world of high performance shortboards. The outline has a clearly defined "hip" which reduces the turning radius and allows the Gamma to be ridden in shorter, wider dims as well as regular HPSB dims.

The Slater Designs Gamma will perform in surf from thigh-high to well overhead.

Firewire’s Helium tech is all about making an already amazing set of construction options even better. Its lighter, seems strong, no signs of any pressure marks at all, and very fast. High Density Aerospace Composite Deck Skins and a new Paulownia/Balsa mix on the rails gives a faster flex response. Having surfed the tech in a couple of different models it does feel light but the speed through a stiffer feel and responsiveness is exceptional, Helium is here to stay.

Boardshop is stoked to be a key partner for Firewire and Slater Design surfboards across Europe and beyond, we've been with them since the very start. The surfboards are more durable than other surfboard manufacturing processes, and for 90% of surfers they will improve your surfing. Firewire is pushing the limits of applying new technology and innovation to surfboard design and always has an eye on the environmental impact of what they do, they truly are different to the other board companies out there. A big chunk of the boards in both the Slater and Firewire ranges are perfectly suited to the waves that 90% of us surf on a regular basis, so if you haven't already, give them a try.

We're happy to consider trading in your old board against a new Slater Designs surfboard, so If you have any questions about this we'd be delighted to answer them and advise on any potential board choices or enquiries you might have, just drop us an email to info@boardshop.co.uk or call us on 0044 (0) 1243 674250.

Beautiful non-nonsense shortboard
Hi, just got my 6'2 Gamma Boardshop.uk. As always, easy, agreable, fast, arrived in 3 days in Germany in mint condition (so don't worry about shipping). The board is looking great. Great outline, rounded, still HP but a bit wider than a standard pro shape. Very subtle volume distribution with nice medium rails (still like a HP Shortboard and thinned out in the last 15'') and flatter deck. It has a great continuous rocker line with some nose and a relevant tail kick rocker and a bit of staged rocker in front of the fins for drive. Single concave, not overly deep (3 mm) but noticeable. Looks like a great big guy shortboard for anything from better waist high waves to overhead and a bit.
And Helium feels very solid, like FST, maybe a bit softer on the outside, but good resistance, and with a slight weight advantage (2,9 kg with pad w/o leash compared to 3,1+ish on my other FST boards). Still doesn't feel too light. Frothing to get it wet soon.
I was worried it could be a too blown up hybridish shape but that's gone. Great work by KS and Firewire.
Awesome
