Slater Designs No Brainer 5' 5"
The No Brainer is so easy to surf well and shred on. The Rocker is a tried and true template that Dan Mann has relied on for a long time in grovelers, modified slightly for Kelly with a flip in the nose and tail.
Kelly and Dan have been going back-and-forth on four or five variations of the No Brainer and they’ve landed on something 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, as the V is something really critical to Kelly in most of his shapes.
Recommended to surf with your favorite quad set.
