Slater Designs Flat Earth LFT Surfboard
These are crazy times! When conspiracies become realities, and creativity manifests to functionality.
Introducing the Flat Earth: a board built to shred ankle high to overhead surf. Designed by Akila Aipa and dialed-in by Kelly Slater, this model is ready to be your go-to board whatever the conditions of the day.
Finesse and flow in waves chest to head high, sized at your normal shortboard volume or a couple liters more.
Experiment with a twin + trailer or twin without trailer, because this shape surfs on a spectrum from loose and slidey in smaller sizes with two twin fins, to grippy and drivey in larger sizes with a trailer added.
In summary, let the Flat Earth blow your mind as a twin fin, or sip the serum in doses with a trailer fin. Feel the speed. Hit the lip. Bury the rail. As Akila’s dad – the great, surfer-shaper Ben Aipa – would say, “HOOK IT!” VISIT www.flatearth.surf to join the conspiracy of truth and science which could lead you to winning a “Flat Earth”.

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.”
