Slater empire expands...

Did you guys see this?

Pretty interesting if he will develop his wave pool concept there :-)
Exciting to see what comes out of it.

...also I never knew Slater was the owner of Firewire. Not shabby.

I don't know man. That article was published on 31 March, and I read well before that he was leaving Merrick…

The Firewire thing has been buzzing for a while now. Slater even took a Tomo "Evo" for a stint on his last contest. He did however play a nice April Fools joke yesterday(Australia time) announcing his retirement. He went on to say the "Bells" contest will be his last and it will be a fitting way to end his career since this is where it started.

yeah I know about the FW piece, but I felt perhaps Real and a wave pool might not exactly be ideal..that said...what do I know.

Super amp'd to see what FireWire will come out with when Slater get's engaged. Kelly and Tomo working together will be nuts and he seem's focused on the environmental aspects of building boards as well.
