Dan Mann began building custom boards in 1996. Over the last 18 years, he has been at the cutting edge of surfboard shaping and innovation including all aspects of board building. In addition to building his own brand Mannkine, Dan has shaped and glassed boards for Channel Islands, glassed for Rusty, Xanadu, and Joel Tudor. Since then he has become the head of Design and Research & Development for Firewire Surfboards. His designs include the best selling Dominator, Sweet Potato, Potatonator, Baked Potato, and the Unibrow.
The Hellfire is a “contemporary Hybrid” blending the best characteristics of our pure hybrid shapes with our high performance models. With low entry rocker and deep double concave this board will get up and plane quickly but still carve tight pocket turns and allow for responsive rail to rail transitions.
An exceptional all around board and one of most popular models, we offer the Hellfire in two sizes, a 5’08” for larger riders and a 5’6” for smaller riders. The boards come in a 5/4/3 fin configuration providing you options for changing wind conditions. (FST contains inserts for straps TimberTEK contains no inserts)
The Hellfire in TimberTek is built WITHOUT inserts for straps. No pads or fins included.
All boards come with Futures boxes unless otherwise noted.
TIMBERTEK represents a significant step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today's environmentally conscious world. While by no means sustainably built, Firewire's TIMBERTEK has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially available surfboard today..
The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown wood deck skins, Firewire's proprietary parabolic rail construction, and anEntropy bio-resin hot coat yield an extremely lightweight, durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire's existing technologies. Even more impressive, the physical properties of the raw materials involved have allowed us to remove exterior fiberglass, furthering the reduction of the board’s carbon footprint. Or as we like to describe TIMBERTEK, it's simply High Performance Art.
