Last week’s CT event in Tahiti at the infamous "end of the road' wave Teahupoo saw Josh Kerr not only spend more time in the tube than anyone else, but also scored himself a career best result on the WCT with a 3rd place finish. Kerr more well know for his flair above the lip, let his tube style do the talking in some of the heaviest barrels surfed in a WCT event.

Josh laid testament to his Rusty Preisendorfer shaped "Slayer" model board's performance throughout the event helping him excel to the finals.
Kelly Slater & Josh Kerr where the only two competitors to ride alternate crafts, crafts that where designed for hi-fi vanishing acts behind the curtain and tight radical turns, look at their results Slater won it and Kerr narrowly lost to Slater in the semi’s, nuff said. Kerr was riding a 6”0 & a 6”2 which you would consider being more suited to your local beach break. The "Slayer" proved itself in the ultimate testing ground of Teahupoo’s gnarly barrels.

Kerrs Chopes Board

Kerrzy was Slaying Chopes on a Rusty Slayer model.

Ok, thank you Kelly for the inspiration. Start with a board designed as a next one up and take 4" off the front end/ The wide point is now 2" forward of center instead of 2" back. Add a touch of width to the center. Re-blend everything so the front end has a little fuller nose and relaxed rocker. It paddles well, makes the drop and fits because it is shorter. The back end of the board is mean for better waves.

Pulling the wide point forward gives you a rail line that feels a little longer yet offers you more control with less board up front. Lots of R&D last summer. Pros and bros slayin' dragons and draining dungeons in Mex, South Pacific, Bali and Indo.
It made me rethink my indo quiver, I will be adding one of these to the mix.
