With an incredible feel for details, Kelly has fine tuned the elements of the Firewire Gamma Helium Surfboard to further aid in clean, everyday performance surfing. 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 has lead to the development of an incredible all around short board. The highly functional, easy executing Slater Designs Gamma was the result.

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 high performance short board range this would be considered a medium rocker, with a medium, 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 dimensions as well as the common performance short board dims. Sure to be underfoot on this years title run, the Gamma is Kelly’s go to utility short board for the season.

Helium Technology
Firewire's Helium construction is a breakthrough in extremely lightweight and durable performance epoxy technology. By pairing existing features from the highly successful FST (Future Shapes Technology) build process with an alternative sandwich skin material, Firewire has created Helium construction which uses this new composite in conjunction 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. Lighter, stronger and more responsive... Helium is the future under your feet.


Firewire Surfboards Gamma Helium Surfboard Great boardReview by Daniel Daniel
I weigh 80 kg and got this board in 5'11" (not hp dims) as a daily driver for local reef breaks. I have been surfing it for almost a year now and am amazed at how well its’s holding up. Even in heavy 8+ ft it holds, and the Helium construction is awesome, I wish more shapes were available in Helium. In numerous occasions I was sure the board would have taken damage, either from a heavy lip in the middle, or a late/rough drop, but after a quick check: not a scratch. most of my surfing mates have gone through 2-4 boards since I got this Gamma, but I'm still surfing the same board, very happy with it and with Helium Tech.

Firewire Surfboards Gamma Helium Surfboard durability of boardReview by Not Bad Not Bad
I was surfing with the Gamma Helium Board on a 3ft day and snapped it in half where the wooden plates are near the tail pad, the waves weren't even that heavy it just snapped clean in half on a wipeout in barrel, I had a look at the break and the glassing and material was not the best in my opinion as it felt like rubber

Don't want no hate it might have just been a faulty Board
