Product Details

Slater Designs FRK Grom LFT Surfboard


Notes from the shaper: In 2015 I was asked to shape Kelly a board for the first time. I knew immediately what I wanted to make him.

I saw it all in my head immediately; from the bottom contour to the tail template. The way the volume would distribute through the width, the whole shape... I t might actually be the most intuitive design I’ve ever done, probably because I’ve spent so many years both watching Kelly surf, and shaping boards. As crazy as it sounds I was certain it would work for him. Totally certain.

The odd thing is, after sending him the board in 2015, I never heard from Kelly about how the board went, and I sort of just moved on to other stuff.

Then one afternoon in 2017 I got this stream of text messages one day about how Kelly was blowing up at Trestles on my board. It totally caught me off guard. Just text messages and phone calls flying in from everyone. I sorted through everyone’s messages and learned that Kelly’s good friend from Florida who was in town at the time had grabbed the board from Kelly’s shed where it had sat un-surfed for two years. He surfed it and then told Kelly that Kelly would love it based on having known Kelly his whole life, and having a good idea about what boards he likes and doesn’t like, based on all the times the two of them had swapped boards before. Anyway, thankfully Kelly took his friends advice and loved the board from the first turn. Kelly actually said he knew the FRK was a keeper before he’d even completed his first wave on it. Two weeks later he took it to J Bay and did what a lot of people called his best surfing of the year.

Since that contest, he’s ridden the FRK everywhere in videos and at key events like the Founders Cup, J Bay again in 2018, and the Surf Ranch Pro. He’s also surfed it all around the North Shore this Winter. Actually the FRKs he’s been riding this Winter have been straight out of Firewire’s factory, and I’m stoked we were able to so smoothly transition the custom FRKs I’ve been making him since 17’ into the final version from Firewire’s factory that will be at surf shops everywhere. To see Kelly embrace the shape and build exactly as it will hit surf shops is awesome.

If I had to describe the nuts and bolts of the FRKs design, I’d simply say it’s made to make you forget it’s there. When designing boards for Kelly I’m trying to remove as many variables as possible and make it something that can level up his talents, or the talents of other surfers, without any glitches, or ever feeling like its in your way. I can’t wait to see everyone riding it in 19’.

About Slater Designs:


“I’m not sure if the perfect board really exists, but I’m enjoying the freedom to collaborate with some of surfing’s most innovative shapers and designers.

It is a quest to create something different in a slightly different way that appeals to where I want to go on a wave. Discovering a new feeling under my feet, drawing a new line, or taking a completely different track on a wave is something I never stop dreaming about.

Now being able share and grow that idea with others is what keeps surfing fun for me.”

-Kelly Slater

Sick board

I’m very happy with my board, the only disappointment is not getting the 6 foot board I wanted due to being told it was not in stock due to a website error but then when I kept viewing it on your website it said it was in stock.
It will just take a bit longer on my 5’7 blue Eric board to learn to surf.

Quality wetsuit

Ripcurl is the best wetsuit on the market, don't buy any other wetsuit they are inferior. Great service from the crew at Sanbah.

What a great board!!

Started out on an 8ft foamy. Then I bought a shorter board with a lot less volume. A lot harder to paddle than the foamy. That’s when I knew what I needed, more volume. Bought the 9ft Jumbo and am so glad I did. It paddles so well and makes catching waves a lot easier. Once on the wave it’s a lot faster than the foamy and turns better too. Very stable. It is very wide which makes it a little harder to carry but I believe it’s worth it. I’ve also put my small kids on it and they had a ball. All around fun time board. Very happy

Great service

Fast, affordable and efficient. Highly recommended
