The Artillery Series represents a combination of everything we’ve learned building step ups and guns for our top team riders such as Tahitian charger Michel Bourez, North Shore big wave surfer Gavin Gillette, and of course Timmy Reyes, who will paddle out in anything.
The foils and bottom contours of the Artillery are refined and the outlines feature smooth curves from nose to tail. By combining these high-performance shapes with Firewire’s World Tour proven Future Shapes Technology (FST), the performance levels are as good as the waves they are designed to be ridden in. If you want to charge challenging conditions, these are the boards you’ll need.
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.
