5'6 FLAT EARTH 27.1L
by Firewire

  • 5'6" x 19 3/8" x 2 7/16" 27.1L
  • FUTURE 2+1
  • These are crazy times! When conspiracies become realities, and creativity manifests to functionality.

    Introducing the Flat Earth: a board built to shred ankle high to overhead surf. Designed by Akila Aipa and dialed-in by Kelly Slater, this model is ready to be your go-to board whatever the conditions of the day.

    Finesse and flow in waves chest to head high, sized at your normal shortboard volume or a couple liters more. Experiment with a twin + trailer or twin without trailer, because this shape surfs on a spectrum from loose and slidey in smaller sizes with two twin fins, to grippy and drivey in larger sizes with a trailer added.
    In summary, let the Flat Earth blow your mind as a twin fin, or sip the serum in doses with a trailer fin.

    Feel the speed.

    Hit the lip.

    Bury the rail.

    As Akila’s dad – the great, surfer-shaper Ben Aipa – would say, “HOOK IT!”
