The FRK by Firewire

Mind Blown
by the FRK’s under-arm feel.
A mind processing perfection – Kelly gives the FRK an A+ under the arm.
I look at this board and to me…. This board looks perfect. The lines all look great, the template is great, the rocker is smooth, it has a very subtle bottom curve on it…

– Kelly Slater

The FRK is a collaboration between Kelly Slater and Dan Mann that almost never happened… but it has…. and you can hear about how this board was discovered by pressing here.

Kelly, Dan, and even Kalani Robb have a lot to say in this new video about what has made the FRK Kelly’s go to performance shortboard for more than two years.

The FRK by Dan Mann and Kelly Slater
…Vindication is the theme of the edit above, in which Kelly Slater and shaper Dan Mann give the backstory and break down the performance characteristics of Mann’s almost overlooked FRK model.

– Todd Prodanovich; SURFER Magazine

You can count on one hand the surfers whose design choices move the needle at your local lineup… most certainly the 11x Champ Kelly Slater.

…Mann doesn’t know how to ride a wave backside. He became a switch-hitter when he was a kid learning to surf in Hawaii. His pal was a goofyfooter; his dad was a regular.

He copied them both.
