Product Construction

I-Bolic Technology
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.

Additional Info

”Firewire

I-Bolic is the tech of the future and marries the best qualities of both LFT and Helium. With an ‘I-Beam’ high density foam stringer (hence the name) and high density parabolic rails, I-Bolic has the strength and stiffness of LFT coupled with the flex and spring-back of Helium.

Over the course of the development process of this new technology, the involvement and feedback from Kelly and the team has been invaluable. Many months were spent testing in all conditions and the initial models released were the FRK, REVO and the SC-FI 2.0, with the entire performance range now being offered in this tech and now also in the Volcanic lamination build.

  • Fiber Reinforced I-Beam down center with Parabolic Rail Springers from nose to tail.
  • Three independent points for flex control and break resistance.
  • I-Beam ensures firmness underfoot and unparalleled break strength.
  • Two Parabolic Rail Springers enable flex and recoil during turns.

I-Bolic Technology is an engineering feat that builds performance into the core of your surfboard - no external carbon layups or heavy laminations needed. A leap forward in surfboard manufacturing with an interplay of our favorite elements of LFT and Helium combined, elevated and enhanced to put The Future Under Your Feet.


The Story Behind the Shape

The Slater Designs S Boss I-Bolic Surfboard is performance board with more range in small to big surf than any other high-performance board. It has been the go to board every time there are good waves. The key design elements a surfer will notice on this board that stand out from other boards is the outline with the blunt nose, the familiar FRK round tail, the S deck/foot wells on the deck, and the double barrel set into a V bottom contour. Surfers will want to ride their S Boss shorter than their regular shortboard and an inch or two longer than their groveller. Pay close attention to the volume on this board and error on the side of more volume (foam is your friend). The turning radius is super tight because of the volume, bottom contour and narrowness packed into a shorter board.

Kelly came with the idea of making a blunt nose performance board with parallel rails with this crazy double barrel V bottom. Mannkine liked all his ideas except for the double barrel set into a V (instead of a concave), but he could not talk him out of it and realized as soon as he surfed his first S Boss (5'11") that he was totally wrong about the V. Right away Kelly saw a lot of promise with the shape, as did Kevin Schulz and a friend he left the third one with in Bali. A second round with a rocker that is tried and true in boards like the Dominator 2. That is when the shape was essentially set and since then they've refined the dimensions, the rail tuck and volume distribution.
