The brand new Slater Designs No Brainer model has just arrived in store at Zak Surfboards. This is a new performance groveler from Slater Designs to come out of the collaboration of Kelly Slater with Dan Mann. A board that an advanced surfer can ride in small to medium sized waves and shred on – that can also be ridden by less experienced surfers as more of an all-rounder.
A shorter, wider and fuller outline for extra glide and flow over flatter wave faces – but enough curve in the outline and rail rocker to allow for a top to bottom approach on smaller wave faces. The bottom contour goes from a subtle belly vee in the nose that blends into a single concave under the chest. A double concave then creeps in, within the single from a decent way up the board deepening into a spiral vee as it goes through the fins & out the tail. This bottom contour allows for plenty of lift and speed while keeping rail to rail transitions nice, smooth & catch free.
This model comes with fin plug options so it can be surfed as a Thruster or a Quad – Kelly suggests trying the Quad set up first on this model. Come and check them out in store or ONLINE
