Yeah mate...Kelly worked with us in 2006/07 and was super impressed with the tech. In fact the Springer came from sessions with him and Taj surfing at south Straddie on boards we made specifically for them before they were Firewires (nevs). The aim was to get more resistance under front foot loading in committed bottom turns. We have all the footage etc from that peeriod for the wall one day.
Those boards still exist and would be gold!
That is so cool, as I just bumped into Slater in San Clemente and was going to ask him about that. I did ask him about the nubster and he said it was a cool little addition and made him surf better. Did not want to spend too much time talking to him as I am sure he gets plenty of attention where ever he goes. Glad to hear Kelly had a little say in the boards you have created. Best boards I have ever surfed! Thanks.
