Slater Designs LFT Gamma surfboard (high performance dims) 5ft 8 FCS II - White
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.
Linear Flex Technology or LFT has replaced the Rapidfire internal carbon rods with an 18mm wide composite Springer stringer HD Suspension System that runs from nose to tail and includes a top-deck sheet to improve compression resistance. This high density insert creates additional strength through the centre with increased flex through the tail. The EPS top sheet buffer above the HD Springer allows for some compression but without the raised ridge and cracking that can occur with traditional wooden stringer surfboards. LFT delivers plenty of 'TWANG' in and out of your turns and creates the fast-twitch flex response that gives the surfer the feedback and return desired. LFT at last brings the perfect blend of a brand-new traditional PU 'board feel' with the added durability of modern sandwich construction.
