Slater Designs Houdini
Build to Order boards require 15 to 18 weeks to turnaround.
To maintain quality, our boards can only be built at the Firewire factory with proprietary technology and require a sufficient lead time due to the complex production process.
If you’re ordering a board for a surf trip, please plan ahead and share your travel plans with us.
Making it easy to disappear and reappear in Hawaiian tubes, the Houdini is our new magic act for Hawaiian waves, or other locations, where controlled lines through racy barrels are a must.
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 slight vee, in spite of 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.
It’s available now in LFT, with five fin boxes for optionality.
