The FLEXFIRE Series is designed around the performance specifications of our top surfers. The dimensions, foils and rail configurations are all geared towards maximum speed and the tightest turning radius possible. The rapid response flex memory inherent in FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY ensures that the FLEXFIRE Series explodes through turns while the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years. The FLEXFIRE is also offered in Direct Drive.
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 RapidFIRE, Firewire continues to define the 'Future of Shape.'
