Even though it wasn’t officially announced that Kelly Slater would be surfing on the 2011 tour, everyone kind of knew he was going to, especially with the way he reacted to the Quiksilver Pro in New York. But, according to his main board sponsord, Channel Islands, it is officially official (a little redudundent?). Not only that, but they’re giving us a look into Mr. 10 time World Champ’s quiver for the first contest of the year.
Kelly’s quiver includes the 4 boards shown above plus a a few other that aren’t pictured. All his boards are tri/quad options with the FCS fin system.
From left to right in the picture above:
- 5’5″ x 18 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ Wizard Sleeve, squash tail
- 5’9″ x 18 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ Semi Pro, rounded pin, a copy of his magic Semi Pro from his 10th World Title Campaign
- 5’9″ x 18 3/8″ Semi Pro, with a slightly wider nose outline
- 5’9″ x 18 3/4″ x 2 5/16″ “Combo Platter”, The Semi Pro-Whip. A board specifically blended for the bank at snapper. Swallow tail.
Here’s a better look at the 5’9 Combo Platter:
