FIREWIRE GREAT WHITE TWIN KELLY SLATER FUTURES FINS
The Great White Twin is a fast performance twin fin short board that pairs with Kelly's Twin + 2 fin set, whose design is inspired by the shape of the Great White Shark. Kelly Slater designed the "Great White Twin" with I-Bolic technology and Volcanic lamination together with shaper Mike Woo.
This is a high performance groveler with the paddle and catching of a hybrid, and the on-rail performance of a shortboard. It fits well in the pocket, perfect and fast in the tubes, generates great speed on the rails.
It fits where most fish don’t - it creates speed in weak waves, controls speed in powerful waves, and excels at tight arcs in punchy pockets and quick wraps on shoulder sections. It's volume is 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 immediate response of a thruster, and it's elevated tail rocker makes it magic on your backhand.
Recommended to surf at your performance volume, or just slightly more.
Another key point is the low resistance if used without the central rear fin or minimal resistance if with a smaller rear fin.
"The concept of the Great White came from an idea that Kelly had.
One evening during dinner she showed me a photo of a great white shark and asked if I could incorporate the curves of a top predator into a table design.
A little surprised I listened to her idea of transforming all this into a performance twin.
With the photo in hand, I worked on the outline of the board, following the curves and movement of the shark in order to visually balance them with some dimensions I had in mind.
Talking to Kelly we positioned the wings until we found a good balance.
Regarding the width, we decided to achieve the adequate lift needed with simple bottom contours. I decided to use my best performance board rocker that I have developed and evolved over the last 20 years.
Outline, rocker, bottom contours all in balance with each other.
I'd love to tell you how we spent years developing the design, but the truth is that the first shape was magical..." - Woo
