The Firewire PRO_File v1.0 Series kiteboard represents a combination of everything we’ve learned working with our top team riders such as Felix Pivec.
The PRO_File v1.0 incorporates feedback from our top team riders, creating the highest performance design in our range. The 5’11” outline features continuous curve from nose to tail and with accentuated tail rocker added for extreme turns in the most critical part of the wave.
This high performance board is now offered in two builds, FST with traditional inserts (FP1) for riding strapped or starting to transition to strapless and TimberTEK with no inserts(TP1) model. With less flotation than most of our other boards, the FP1/TP1 are great for higher wind conditions and extreme high performance riding.
All boards come with Futures boxes unless otherwise noted. No pads or fins included.
FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY
FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than the traditional PU surfboard. Please note our boards are definitely not indestructible and if slammed by a thick lip, or if you land incorrectly in the flats after doing an aerial, it is possible to break them.
The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures boards maintain their lively feel for longer.
With a retail price point slightly above premium polyurethane surfboards, FST offers an extremely high performance, durable surfboard.
