"The Firefly is now El Fuego: we inadvertently used the same name as one of our competitors well established models. It was never our intention and when they asked us to change it, we thought it the right thing to do. There will be a few Firefly's in the market, but please note all future Firefly's will be El Fuego's." - Firewire Surfboards

The El Fuego combines a thicker foil from nose to tail with the outline of a performance surfboard, complimenting the Firewire Dominator. With a wide Swallow or Diamond tail option and a 5/4/3 fin configuration, the El Fuego offers multiple choices in the pursuit of small wave fun without sacrificing performance.

RapidFire Technology

RF is a hybrid technology, combining the carbon rod suspension of Direct Drive with a bamboo top deck skin.

Developed in conjunction with Surfboard Suspension Systems, RF's core is shaped from 2lb fused EPS foam and the bamboo skin is applied using Firewire's proven sandwich construction. Unlike FST and DD, the 2lb foam and bamboo deck sandwich do not require a vent.

The interior carbon rods work with the bamboo skin to optimize flex patterns, maximizing speed and drive through turns, and while not as dent resistant as the DD or FST aerospace composite skin, the bamboo does create significant compression strength. 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.

RF’s flex characteristic is similar to FST and the overall effect is a highly tuned surfboard with increased performance over traditional surfboard constructions. RF retails in line with premium PU surfboards.

So whether you prefer the pinnacle technology of Direct Drive, the Parabolic Balsa Rail performance of Future Shapes Technology or the hybrid technology of RapidFIREFirewire continues to define the 'Future of Shape.'
