    ep. #73 - Kelly Slater talks Great White Sharks and The Great White Twin

    Inspired by the body of the Great White Shark, Kelly Slater designed the ‘Great White Twin’ in I-Bolic Technology with Volcanic Lamination alongside Bali based surfboard designer Mike Woo.
    This high performance fish fits in your quiver where most fish don’t - it creates speed in weak waves, but also controls speed in powerful waves, and it excels at tight arcs in punchy pockets and quick wraps on shoulder sections. 
    This all new surfboard model from Slater Designs has volume hidden at center with fine rails for immediate response and quick reaction in the pocket. It has the speed of a twin fin with the controlled pivot of a thruster, and it's elevated tail rocker makes it magic on your backhand. 
    Recommended to surf at your performance volume and designed to pair with Kelly's signature 'Twin + 2' fin set, the Great White Twin is available at Surf Shops and Online Stores everywhere on November 20th.
    About Volcanic Lamination:
    A sustainable alternative to carbon lamination in performance shapes. Derived from natural fibers extruded from basalt rock. A lamination enhancement for both I-Bolic and Helium Cores. Increased response and deck durability. About I-Bolic Technology:
     
    Firm, drivey and reassuring underfoot. Enables powerful surfing in good waves. Unrivaled break strength. A favorite among our most talented team riders
