Nev Hyman has a successful 35+ year history in the surf industry and is recognized as one of the best shapers in the world. Nev has been instrumental in developing Future Shapes Technology and designing the pure performance potential of Firewire Surfboards. Drawing on his actual shaping expertise and combining it with the unlimited design capabilities of Firewire's CAD/CAM platform, Nev has the tools to take surfboard design into the next frontier, a place where materials have as important an influence on performance as proven design principles.
FLEXFLIGHT’S are true hi-performance longboards. The Flex Flight Series incorporates Timber Tek technology, a 1lb EPS core, high density skin and PARABOLIC balsa rails, producing an ultra lightweight and durable longboard with the same superior performance characteristics made famous by Firewire's shortboards.
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.

- Firewire Surfboards - Flexflight TimberTek amazing board!Review by Jay Jay
RatingI am very happy to have this board in the quiver. In fact if I only had 1 board in my quiver this could be that one and only. It rides smooth and likes to be ridded from the back. It is possible to get up on the nose although this is a board made for performance and does best ridden from the tail. It loses no speed when ridden from the tail. No need to move up to the nose this board just goes. Its a glider with a high level of performance. Turns on a dime, is thin so it cuts into the wave face and is extremely light. Take it out in 3', take it out in 8' or bigger it handles it all. Ive had this board for 5 months and it continues to show me new things. I can't be happier, love it, love it.(Posted on 2/2/2016) 2016-02-02

RatingThis board rocks! Superlight weight, catches waves with ease and has the same poly board feel in a wave. Nose has enough rocker for late drop ins and handles great on fast waves and holds great on the nose. 9' x 23 x 3 squash(Posted on 4/29/2015) 2015-04-29
