Aside from Mick’s title bout with a great white shark at J-Bay last month, Kelly Slater leaving Quiksilver was perhaps the greatest surf news in recent years. Since then, sponsor-less Kelly has been seen riding some bizarre-looking shapes by Tomo Surfboards. But he’s not just riding them, he’s murdering it. And it got many people thinking, if Kelly is riding them, there must be something special to them. Now, watching Tristan Sullaway here tearing the lid off San Diego with a few similar shapes is confirmation that we need to broaden our horizons and expand our quivers, starting with a design by Tomo Surfboards.
