KELLY SLATER IS ONTO SOMETHING = CYMATICS

Thus spake Kelly Slater on his Instagram, and his surfing seems to back him up.

kellyslater#Cymatic(s) is the study of wave phenomena, esp sound, and their visual representations.

YouTube it to see the shapes that sounds of differing frequencies will create in sand on a metal plate (if you find the @slaterdesigns logo let me know the Hz frequency).

@tomo_surfboards and I had this idea to make a board that fits the ‘vibration’ of a wave in our minds.

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 battail (like the SciFi model).

With the added bite of the channels the tail still holds while giving plenty of lift.

This edit 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 @peterkingphoto clip gives you an idea.

This is a four fin 5’3” X 18-5/8 X 2-5/16” X 25.5L.

I don’t want to ride anything else right now and everyone who rides it wants to take it off my hands. #SoFunYeah? @firewiresurfboards @travlee
