Kelly Slater's latest Experiments- Asymmetrical Tails, Concave Decks, and Beveled Rails!



What has Kelly been up to this past week? He’s been busy. He revisited Todos Santos for the first time in 18 years and rode a brand new 5’6” in well overhead conditions. He scored a ten second barrel on a 5’6” MTF at Rincon.

Kelly stopped in the CI Factory to shape this board with Dual Stringers, Concave Decks, and Beveled Rails.

The last few days he’s been in the CI Factory shaping room experimenting with concave decks with beveled rails on the underside– similar to what Gerr used to mess around with. Anyway, it seems like everything Kelly is thinking that could be worth a try or anything that’s been locked away in his vault pours out when he gets in the shaping room and collaborates.
