Slater Designs Omni Review


What the Firewire Surfboards site says about the Omni:

“The Omni takes modern functional aesthetics to new places with a clean and minimalistic meeting of Kelly’s performance round tails and Tomo’s modern planing hull designs. The Omni will revel in smaller waves upto 5ft with smooth and extremely radical performance capability. Suited to intermediate to advanced riders. 5-fin option

LFT (Linear Flex Technology) incorporates Firewire’s SPRINGER HD, a 0.75″ (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centerline of the board, representing the next generation in our SPRINGER technology. The SPRINGER HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail.”

What people are saying about it:

“I think it would be a fair assessment to say that the Omni is a more ramped up version of the Evo. It still has the same ‘angelic’ flow and smoothness of the Evo but has the ability to show it’s ‘devilsh’ side when required.” – user megsy on the Firewire Surfboards Forum

“Anybody who surfs, who wants to improve their surfing a bit and push their limits a bit, this is the board that can carry their surfing for a wide range of conditions.” – Boardshop

“The Omni felt really good in the pocket, it seemed to stick in the wave really well and I think its trippy little shape matched the curvature of the wave. An amazing board for doing your biggest, most progressive turn or air. It loved doing airs.” – Tracks
