Slater Designs - 5'9 FRK (Basalt / White)

An epic collab between Kelly and Dan Mann, the FRK is a light weight, approaching perfect (according to Kelly!) high performance short board featuring the all new Basalt fibre construction. With a smooth clean rocker and subtle bottom curve, the FRK generates awesome speed and with the foam distribution toward the centre of the board, the rails are refined - meaning the board delivers exceptional control. When choosing your size, go smaller than you usually would - the refined rails can make the board feel almost too light - its not - the foam in the centre of the board balances those rails out nicely, giving you masses of plaining speed and control, to get the most out of every wave.

Product Information

Whats is Basalt?

Designed specifically for surfboards, the copper-colored Basalt Fiber tape you see on each FRK is a more sustainable alternative to carbon fiber in surfboard production, laid on the bottom of each FRK to increase the strength of the LFT construction.

It also adds a dampening property to the board when dealing with chop on the water's surface. Basalt Fiber begins as basalt rock in a molten state and outperforms E-Glass in many ways, with innate properties more similar to the positive feel and increased durability of S-Glass.
