Slater Designs LFT Cymatic surfboard 5ft 8 FCS II - White
Kelly told Stab about the Cymatic "The minimal amount of board to do the maximum amount of surfing. We chopped the nose off ahead of the rail line you need and went with a pretty wide bat tail (like the Sci-Fi model). With the added bite of the channels the tail still holds while giving plenty of lift. This edit (check the video below!!) is from one session at Haleiwa in January. I actually took the board there as a joke that day cause it was too big for what I thought it could handle. I got my best rides earlier that session but this edit gives you an idea. This is a four fin 5'3 x 18 5/8 x 2 5/16 with 25.5L. I don’t want to ride anything else right now and everyone who rides it wants to take it off my hands.
It's not that difficult to identify the Cymatic's parentage, with obvious elements of the Sci-Fi and Omni models featuring strongly, in fact It really does look like the result of some clandestine liaison of these two models.
All too often these amalgamations look great on paper but usually result in a dysfunctional board that really doesn't know its own raison d'être...not the case here kids; the functionally of the Cymatic looks to be absolutely spot-on and the perfect melding of these two ground-breaking surfboard designs. The brilliant double bat wing tail adds serious grip on the wave face successfully offsetting the extreme lift and speed created by the "Quad Inside Single Concave". The skilful blending of these features along with the reduced swing weight of the Omni’s nose, Tommo has dreamt and created what looks to be a truly magic board that surfs more akin to the Sci-Fi but with a tad more rocker.
According to the Firewire/Slater Designs website the Cymatic is listed with an "Ideal Wave" from 3 to 6ft....but one view of the Haleiwa footage and you'll see the Cymatic's potential in solid conditions....so go as big as you dare.
Firewire's LFT or Linear Flex Technology is an eco friendly construction process that results in a durable board with a unique flex pattern. LFT uses an 18mm wide Composite Springer HD Suspension System that runs from nose to tail (in effect a space age stringer) and is overlaid with a top-deck sheet to improve the boards resistance to 'ridging' often seen on traditional PU boards with a wooden stringer. LFT produces a feel somewhat akin to a brand-new PU surfboard, but with a huge hike in durability, this will last for the lifespan of the board! Enjoy the lively sensation of a brand new board with the added durability of modern sandwich construction.

Mike (reviewed 06/01/2019)
It makes you think you can do anything and goes anywhere on a wave, it’s super responsive and you feel you may lose control then it suddenly grips and you’re flying back out of a turn unexpectedly, straight into the next.
It’s got hold when you want it, feeling poised like the Omni but much more playful. I’ve surfed it below waist high and got it going, just takes more effort than my Chumlee but it’s perfectly capable.
I’m not a great surfer but surfing this board makes me feel much better than I am. I use it in any decent UK waves up to head and a half. Even deals with wind and chop well, something the Omni struggled with. Honestly I cannot think of a negative! Get one.
