Kelly Slater is testing new  

Kelly Slater is debuting a new Channel Islands surfboard at the 2009 Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay.

It is called "The Manta Ray" and has a total different nose and shape.

The new Kelly Slater's testing surfboard is inspired by hydrodynamics of the manta ray, as well as a mix between the Tangent and Wizard Sleeve models.

If it works, "The Manta Ray" will be one of the oddest surf shapes of the last years.

Kelly Slater has been testing a wide variety of surf quiver for a long time.
