Firewire No Brainer LFT Surfboard

Size Guide

The Firewire No Brainer Surfboard is the latest shape from Slater Designs, available in LFT construction with a carbon fiber reinforced stringer. This hybrid design paddles well, and will work well as a groveler or in medium-sized surf as a high-performance shortboard. 


“The No Brainer is so easy to surf well, you can shred on it even if you don’t have a brain. The Rocker is a tried and true template I’ve relied on for a long time in grovelers. I’ve modified it slightly for Kelly, adding flip in the nose and tail. Kelly and I have been going back-and-forth on four or five variations of the No Brainer and we’ve landed on something I think is really magic – the kind of board that an advanced and talented surfer can grovel and shred on, but at the same time something that all other levels of surfer can ride in small to decent sized surf. The bottom contour is made up of a subtle belly v in the nose that goes into a moderate single concave under the chest. Within that single concave is a double concave that runs through nearly the entire length of the board. Even through the fins. But in the last five or so inches of the board it turns into a spiral V, because since I started working with Kelly over the last couple years, I’ve learned that V is something really critical to him in most of his shapes. I recommend surfing this board with your favorite quad set. “
