Since Kelly Slater purchased a majority share of Firewire surfboards in early 2015, he has been busy working on 3 new models for his side line company ‘Slater Designs’.

Slater Designs will be utilizing tried and tested  Firewire surfboards build methods, and have a design input from renowned shapers such as, Daniel Thompson and Greg Webber.

Initially there will be three unique models in the Slater designs line up that will cover all bases. The new range of Slater Designs boards should be with us in the shop around May 2016.
