When Kelly is asked about shapers, he says “I’ll work with anyone.” Stab recently talked with Kelly while he was down at Haleiwa testing out some shapes and a new inflatable vest. He talked about Slater Designs, where it’s at, and where it’s going. Kelly is working with Greg Webber, Daniel ‘Tomo’ Thomson and Firewire technology for boards. The vest testing was because even though he didn’t turn up for Todos, he did accept a slot in the event there, which could mean we’ll see him stepping into the big wave arena more. Stoked for the future and all the things Mr Slater embarks in.
