The Slater Design’s No Brainer

Kelly Slater and Dan Mann Want You to Stop Overthinking

When you are up and riding on a wave, the last thing you want to do is have to think
about the board under your feet. Your board should be an extension of your body,
something that you are so in tune with that you can completely stop focusing on it
and instead just move instinctively. You want to be in the flow, naturally drawing on
years of muscle memory and reacting to the wave as it unfolds in front of you, rather
than wasting time analyzing and overthinking. What you want is a No Brainer—a
board that requires no thought at all, that only needs you to surf it.
When Dan Mann and Kelly Slater designed the No Brainer, that was the goal—a
board that felt so natural you forget that it’s there. As Mann says, it’s a board that’s
so easy to surf, you can shred it even if you don't have a brain! The No Brainer
blends Mann’s favorite groveler rocker with a tiny bit of extra flip in the nose and
tail, to tailor the board to Slater’s surfing. The bottom contours feature a subtle belly
V in the nose that gives way to a single concave under the chest. But that single
concave is also complemented by a double concave that runs nearly the entire
length of the board, transitioning to spiral V as it exits the tail under the fins. This
combination gives you forgiveness through the forward rails, drive off the tail, and
all-around maneuverability.
A true groveler, the No Brainer is intended for all levels of surfers, from beginners to
experts, in waves five feet and smaller on the face. It comes in sizes ranging from
5'0" to 6'6", with volume ranging from 24.6 to 49.2 liters (Slater’s personal No
Brainer is a 5'4" with 27.0 liters). Utilizing Firewire and Slater Design’s Linear Flex
Technology and a five-finbox setup, the No Brainer is lightweight, reliable,
progressive, and versatile—the perfect summer board.
