The Houdini

Making it easy to disappear and reappear in Hawaiian tubes, the Houdini is our new magic act for Hawaiian waves, or other locations, where controlled lines through racy barrels are a must.

The magic started in ‘18 between Wade and Kelly – and a year later it’s here, ready to sit alongside the No Brainer, FRK, and Cymatic.

The Houdini has been a staple under Kelly’s feet for the 2019 WSL season, with both big face gouges at Margaret’s and remarkable makes at Pipeline on its resume.

The bottom contour consists of a single to double with slight vee, in spite of its step-up frame, the Houdini has incredible acceleration and manoeuvrability.

The Houdini model sticks with Kelly’s previously proven formula for his personal step-ups: hiding volume under his chest for better paddling, but maintaining a tapered rail for sensitivity.

Linear Flex Technology

LFT 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.

Linear Top Flex Deck Skin

LTF’s deck skin serves as an additional buffer against the ridging effect that center stringers create over time, while simultaneously working in tandem with the SPRINGER HD to optimize the overall flex pattern of the LFT technology.
