Kelly’s interest in developing a board using CAD led to his 2017 utility short board, the GAMMA. With a single concave bottom, slight vee behind the back fin, the GAMMA is extremely fast and drivey with great rail-to-rail transitions. The distinct hip on the Gamma gives it a tighter turning radius, allowing it to be ridden in a shorter, wider set of dims as well as the common performance shortboard dims. It was Kelly’s excitement with the speed and quick direction changes provided by this personal design that held his intrigue throughout 2016.
