Product Details

The all-new Slater Designs Omni 5ft 8 surfboard in Firewire's LFT (Linear Flex Technology).

As soon as Kelly announced his acquisition of a lions share of Firewire Surfboards the industry rumour mill began grinding. Towards the back end of 2015 Kelly was seen riding some new and interesting shapes, both in competition and at the unveiling of his astonishing wave pool.

The Slater Designs Omni is perhaps the most interesting board in the quiver for the average guy in the line-up.

The Omni looks like being your go-to board for day-to-day use in pretty much every kind of wave. Kelly stated; "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 product of the dream collaboration between Daniel 'Tomo' Thomson and KS. The Omni carries Tomo's basic dims mixed with Kelly's more tucked-in tail and tuned to his eye.

The blunt nose makes the Omni look like a small wave groveller when in fact the outline and overall profile results in a board more than capable in good overhead conditions and the tucked tail enjoys more speed and allows the rider to really push his turns on the face.

This simple and attractive shape has embraced 'less is more' school of thought with a generous planing surface and nothing to hinder it's progress.

The Omni looks like THE board to go for from the Slater Designs stable if you're looking for an every-day sled that'll perform at your local break as well as on your travels in almost any conditions you're likely to encounter at home and overseas.

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.

The incredible OMNI
So just back from a trip on an island in the Atlantic with 5 guys and just as many new surfboards. After 10 years we all decided it was time to invest in new boards. We had with us a 611 Sci Fi, a 5'11 Omni, a 6'4 Greedy Beaver, a 5'10 Almond Butter and a 7'6 Seaxe. We surfed punchy hollow beach breaks, gentle take off beach breaks with fast inside sections, long left pointbreaks with diverse sections and mushy conditions. We passed the boards around so everyone could get a feeling for them despite being of very different heights, weights and athletic fitness.

The big winner was the Omni. This board is so unique, so special I can't even beging to understand it. When you ride it it feels like you're on an air cushion. Its so intuitive as soon as you shift your weight it comes alive. Its very fast, very stable and honestly it felt like someone was playing Playstation with me on the board. I've never felt so comfortable so quickly on a surfboard. It was the most popular board. We are good 40 year old surfers with 20 years experience but none of us are throwing vertical maneuvers. We like to cruise and carve and take off on big waves. One thing we did note is that the new FCS2 system is absolutely brilliant.

Ian's advice on size and volume was perfect despite my endless doubts and questions. Service at boardshop is really perfect.
Just wanted to say thanks for your advice on the Omni, its incredible
Just wanted to say thanks for your advice on the Omni, its incredible. Just like you said feels like a forgiving shortboard, nothing like the hypto. Glad I went FCS2, it works well and if I’d waited for futures I would have missed using it in all this surf!
Amazing board
Came on to this from the Hypto which was previously the best board I've ever owned. This board surpasses it in almost every way though, it surfs like a forgiving HP shortboard and since you ride it so short it is incredibly manouvreable. I thought the rounded pin would give it almost too much drive but it is surprisingly easy to release the tail if you need to. It holds well in big surf, and the insane speed it gives you is controllable unlike the Hypto which liked to cruise. Cheers Ian for the help - best advice on boards I've received from anyone.
omni is a stunning little board
5 6 omni is a stunning little board - suits hollow waves and power, open faces, tons of drive and hold, - 8ft super tubes no probem!....ideal travel board esp combined with sci fi for more ripping and above the lip style moves
Amazing board
This is smooth, fast, and turns so nicely. I got a 5,7ft and has loads of volume to get in the waves early and then reacts perfectly. The nose and tail rocker are a great detail to this board because it releases excellently in small or big surf. I've surfed it on beach breaks and reef (over head) and it is amazing!!!
tight turns and plenty of hold
Aye back from hooting France and surfed the Omni every day loved those waves. Went in all waves from waist to well overhead, never got the Merrick out of its bag. thanks guys you were spot on
omni 5´5
My best surfboard ever so far for good waves. It has a really nice tight turnung radius without sacrificing speed: really stoked on the performance,!!!especially with the Mayhem quad fin set up (large), it does have a lot of hold. I never thought those fins would work forthis board. Magic!!!
