The Gamma is Kelly’s 2017 utility short board! Though Kelly has worked with several great shapers this past year on an array of different shapes, it was his excitement with the speed and quick direction changes pro- vided by this personal design that held his intrigue. His interest in Cad board design, modifying variables, and testing and retest- ing as lead to the development of an incred- ible all around short board. The Gamma is sure to be under Kelly’s feet during his 2017 title run.
With a single concave bottom and slight vee behind the back fin this board is extremely fast and drivey. The vee out the back makes for quick rail to rail transitions. Within the hi performance short board range this would be considered a medium rocker with a med to even a slightly pinched rail
The distinct hip on the Gamma gives it a tighter turning radius allowing it to be rid- den in a shorter wider set of dims as well as the common performance short board dims. This board excels in a broad range of waves and conditions.
