1.
A word used in the surfing world to describe a wave that breaks over a shallow slab of rock or coral, producing a thick hollow wave that is often notoriously difficult or dangerous to ride.

Popular with bodyboarders and daredevil surfers, slabs are often kept secret so that they do not become crowded.

Examples of famous slabs are Cyclops, Shipstern bluff, Dinner plates, Rileys, Ours etc.
I tried surfing that slab yesterday and ended up snapping my board
