Slater Designs Omni surfboard 5ft 10 FCS II - White
Rarely has a new quiver of boards been so hotly anticipated, in fact, never in the last 20 years of surf industry employment have I experienced such a buzz about a new surfboard brand! The back end of 2015 saw Kelly paddling out and ripping on some new and exciting shapes; work in progress boards that have been fine tuned by Kelly and Tomo and finally are due for sale Spring 2016.
The Omni is the most accessible board in the line-up for the regular guy looking for a go-to, every-day stick, a board you never leave home without.
Kelly says; "I’ll ride this in basically any surf that’s not too big, but even then, I’ll try it if I can catch the wave. My personal favourite wave for this is a punchy, head-high (or slightly bigger) wave with a face to carve".
The Omni is a Daniel 'Tomo' Thomson design which has been developed with Kelly, it runs with Tomo's basic dimensions and Kelly's more tucked-in tail.
Don't be fooled by the Omni's domestic first impression, yes it thrives in small waves, but according to the main-man it can readily handle decent, overhead conditions with the help of Kelly's tucked tail.
This smooth outline follows the 'less is more' school of thought with a generous planing surface and nothing complicated to restrict it's speed and agility.
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 shortboard, 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.
