Product Info

The FRK Plus is a classic squash tail, high performance shortboard, refined and calibrated over the past three years with Kelly, Brodi, Betty Lou, and others. This new squash version of the FRK is meant to be ridden slightly shorter than the original FRK round tail. It has all the on-wave benefits of the original FRK with a touch more release through turns that comes from the squash tail and minor adjustments to how the concaves and fin placements relate to the increased surface area of the squash when compared to a round tail.

The feedback on this shape has been that it has a super quick rail to rail responsiveness mixed with extremely good drive and release: Most intermediate and above surfers will appreciate the FRK Plus for the way this shape gets out of your way to the point that you don’t even notice it's there - it feels like the most high performance expression of your intentions possible.

Additional Info

A newly updated squash tail design with a fuller rail and moderate rocker adjustments - the FRK+ is enhanced by Kelly Slater and Dan Mann. Kelly Slater shares a look inside his I-Bolic built FRK+.

”Kelly

Funny enough, of all the hand shapes, I get that turn into models, I tend to have boards that work better for me out of the factory; just ones that anyone can buy. Instead of a standard stringer from wood, I-Bolic uses an I-beam and high density foam on the rails. We also have a deck skin that basically stops you from putting big pressure dings in your deck. These boards last forever. I never squish the decks when I have one of these I-Bolic shapes out of the factory.” —Kelly Slater

”Slater

Designed by Dan Mann, Kelly Slater’s iconic FRK round tail is at surf shops and online stores everywhere newly built in I-Bolic Technology, alongside Kelly and Dan’s all new FRK +, an update to the original FRK shape featuring a newly designed squash tail, fuller rail and moderate rocker changes to create a more versatile shape across all waves and skill types.


One board is not better than the other, they're really two different things for two different situations - the FRK+ will suit more skill levels and more wave types, so if you're torn, go with that one. The original FRK shape is more dialed for powerful, round waves, and surfers of a slightly higher skill level. The original FRK is really a finely tuned high performance vessel that Kelly can rely on whenever he needs to in a competitive situation or when the waves are perfect, round, punchy.... The FRK+ is really just enhanced in terms of its versatility. It's suited well for a lot of different wave types and it will work in most any wave you put it in if you want to rip, or progress your surfing.” —Dan Mann
