Slater Designs Houdini LFTSlater Designs
Finally available to the general public - the Slater Designs x Wade Tokoro Houdini model is now in store on our racks.Purpose built for powerful waves and controlled lines through critical sections.
Starting with one of Kelly's favorite step-up outlines, Wade has infused this shape with many elements from his ever popular 4C model. Design elements proven on the North Shore, Tahiti, in Fiji and Indonesia. It's a board for those who need a lot of stability, control and speed.
The collaboration started back in 2018 between Wade Tokoro and Kelly – and a year later it’s here, ready to sit alongside the No Brainer, FRK, and Cymatic models. The Houdini has been a staple under Kelly’s feet for the 2019 WSL season, with both big face gouges at Margaret’s and remarkable makes at Pipeline on its resume. The bottom contour consists of a single to double with a slight vee. Despite its step-up frame, the Houdini has incredible acceleration and manoeuvrability.
The Houdini model sticks with Kelly’s previously proven formula for his personal step-ups: hiding volume under his chest for better paddling, but maintaining a tapered rail for sensitivity.
