A user friendly hybrid, the Firewire Greedy Beaver is the ultimate crossover board. Offering the best of both worlds, the Greedy Beaver delivers the feel of a shortboard with a compressed longboard outline. This truly versatile shape can be used deep in the pocket, leaning into deep cutbacks or to simply make the most of lumpy summer junk. A true crossover board with mid length retro glide and shortboard maneuverability means fun in the surf no matter what the waves have in store.
The Greedy Beaver is fairly similar in shape to the beloved Takayama Scorpion save but a few notable differences. There is slightly more nose rocker for easy last second drops, a modern concave on the bottom, and a five fin set up. Also the fullness of the nose has been pulled in, reducing swing weight while retaining stability and glide. The popularity of these type of mid-length hybrid shapes continues to rise as surfers discover the potential in varied waves and conditions.
Firewire continues to deliver boards that emphasize having a good time in the water So put it on rail while engaging the single to double concave, step on the rounded pin and it surf it like your favorite shortboard. Or take advantage of the single to double concave and large planing surface to trim effortlessly over dead sections. The beveled rail reduces the overall thickness, adding performance including rapid direction changes. Raise your wave count every session with the paddle power of the Greedy Beaver while turning on a dime as you thread your way through the pack.

CONSTRUCTION TimberTek Construction
Firewire's TimberTek construction represents a significant step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today's environmentally conscious world. 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 Paulownia wood deck skins, Firewire's proprietary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat yield an extremely lightweight, durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire's existing technologies.

RatingBought this as a daily driver and it hasn't disappointed. Decent in the small stuff, but comes to life above chest high. The pulled in tail is suited for better waves and holds well on steeper faces. Forward volume makes it an easy paddler. There are better boards for true groveling, but few that will have the range as this one. Also love the TT construction.(Posted on 1/6/2016) 2016-01-06
