Slater Designs Gamma.

July 14, 2017


The Gamma is Kelly’s 2017 utility short
board! Though Kelly has worked with several
great shapers this past year on an array of
different shapes, it was his excitement with
the speed and quick direction changes pro
vided by this personal design that held his
intrigue. His interest in Cad board design,
modifying variables, and testing and retest
ing as lead to the development of an incred
ible all around short board. The Gamma is
sure to be under Kelly’s feet during his 2017
title run.
With a single concave bottom and slight vee
behind the back fin this board is extremely
fast and drivey. The vee out the back makes
for quick rail to rail transitions. Within the hi
performance short board range this would
be considered a medium rocker with a med
to even a slightly pinched rail
The distinct hip on the Gamma gives it a
tighter turning radius allowing it to be rid
den in a shorter wider set of dims as well as
the common performance short board dims.
This board excels in a broad range of waves
and conditions.
