Slater Designs Omni surfboard 5ft 8 Futures - White
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 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.
