In this new edit by Peter King, Kelly talks about his meeting with Daniel 'Tomo' Thomson and his passion in designing (and testing) surfboards & fins etc. Features previously unseen footage of the Cymatic in action.
"My philosophy with a lot of my designs is that at ground level, every board should work well in crappy conditions. The SKX also works well in the conditions I designed it for, which is more of an unruly ocean where a planning hull, a wide tail, might be too much lift and speed. With the SKX, the channel out the squash tail will give a little more control in those situations." – Daniel Thomson.

"The major thing I noticed about this board and it’s tech was that it rode really smoothly and it linked turns together really well. It kept its speed, which was really nice. It felt like it had a good, continuous flex; it wasn’t a short, snappy twinge of a flex, it was a good, drawn-out, drivey flex..." — Taj Burrow
