Product Info

The Great White Twin is a high performance groveler with the paddle and catching of a hybrid, and the on-rail performance of a shortboard. It fits where most fish don’t - it creates speed in weak waves, controls speed in powerful waves, and excels at tight arcs in punchy pockets and quick wraps on shoulder sections. It's volume is hidden at center with fine rails for immediate response and quick reaction in the pocket. It has the speed of a twin fin with the immediate response of a thruster, and it's elevated tail rocker makes it magic on your backhand.

Inspired by the outline of the Great White Shark, Kelly Slater designed the ‘Great White Twin’ in I-Bolic Technology with Volcanic Lamination alongside Bali-based shaper Mike Woo. Recommended to surf at your performance volume, or just slightly more.

Product Construction

I-Bolic Technology Core
Speed, control, strength and response. A core engineered with an I-Beam down center for added strength with flex controlled at the rails using high density foam from nose to tail. Most similar to a PU core.

Volcanic Lamination
Quicker response, stronger durability, forged in fire, this Basalt lamination enhancement for I-Bolic and Helium cores is Firewire's most durable without compromising performance.

The Story Behind The Shape
During a trip to Bali in 2020 Kelly Slater’s longtime friend Rizal Tandjung introduced him to Mike Woo, a Bali based surfboard designer with Hawaiian roots.

With years of experience designing surfboards for Balinese waves, Kelly shared an idea he’d been carrying for years - design a surfboard inspired by The Great White Shark.

Kelly and Mike opened a folder of photos Kelly had been collecting for years and they traced outlines of the sharks as seen from top and bottom, tracing surfboard shape outlines within the shark’s bodies.

After several iterations on the computer, they decided to cut he first shape. Kelly surfed it immediately, and called it perfect from the first go. It was perfect from the first go, and ready for manufacturing in I-Bolic Technology with Volcanic Lamination.

I-Bolic Technology
Firm, drivey and reassuring underfoot, I-Bolic excels at enabling drive, hold and precision. It suits powerful surfing in good waves and is a favorite of Kelly Slater and the Slater Designs team. I-Bolic engineering creates a core with three separate points of flex control including an I-Beam down center for unrivaled break strength, and high-density foam in both rails from nose to tail.

Volcanic Technology
A sustainable lamination alternative to carbon in performance shapes, Volcanic Lamination adds enhanced response and deck durability to both I-Bolic and Helium Cores. 'Volcanic' references basalt: a naturally occurring rock that occurs from hot lava cooling after it breaks through the earth's surface. We make basalt cloth by extruding fibers from basalt rocks and then crushing and melting them into woven fabric that is vacuum bagged and laminated with bio resin.

Basalt fiber has been around for decades yet is a relative newcomer to fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) and structural composites as it relates to surfboard construction. It has a similar chemical composition as glass fiber but has better strength characteristics, and unlike most glass fibers is highly resistant to alkaline, acidic and salt attack making it a good candidate for surfboard manufacturing.

Compared to carbon and aramid fiber, it has the features of wider application temperature range -452° F to 1,200° F (-269° C to +650° C), higher oxidation resistance, higher radiation resistance, relative compression and shear strength.

The cloth can withstand higher temperatures than that of carbon fiber and as a result is heavily used the Aerospace industry in the creation of rockets and jet engines. The elasticity characteristics of this fiber is higher than that of traditional Carbon fiber allowing the board to have more flex for a natural feel under foot.

"Ever since my very first board ever, I've had this sort of jaws fascination. It's called the Great White because the board is literally a template of an outline of a great white shark. Kind of sharp wing and deep swallow. It looked a little more aggressive, like a great white wood. Great white is a performance twin go push it." — Kelly Slater
