The Gamma is Kelly's 2017 utility short board! Though Kelly has worked with several great shapers this past year on an array of different shapes, it was his excitement with the speed and quick direction changes provided by this personal design that held his intrigue. His interest in Cad board design, modifying variables, and testing and retesting as lead to the development of an incredible all around short board. The Gamma is sure to be under Kelly's feet during his 2017 title run.

With a single concave bottom and slight vee behind the back fin this board is extremely fast and drivey. The vee out the back makes for quick rail to rail transitions. Within the hi performance short board range this would be considered a medium rocker with a med to even a slightly pinched rail.

The distinct hip on the Gamma gives it a tighter turning radius allowing it to be ridden in a shorter wider set of dims as well as the common performance short board dims. This board excels in a broad range of waves and conditions.

HELIUM builds on the FST technology platform and takes it to the next level.

After years of scouring the composites world (and countless dead-ends along the way) we've finally managed to develop an alternative sandwich skin material to the existing FST build. HELIUM combines this new composite with a redesigned parabolic wood rail that includes both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is that HELIUM has a +15% weight reduction over FST, a slightly faster flex and rebound characteristic, as well as a higher breakpoint. This represents an almost impossible combination of improvements over FST, as in most cases, a significant weight reduction over an already light technology (FST) leads to a lower break point.
