The HELLFIRE is a ‘contemporary Hybrid’, taking the best characteristics of the Dominator and Spitfire, maintaining bottom curve, thickness distribution and rail volume, but adding 2” in length with a narrower nose and tail. And deeper double concaves for extra lift and drive at speed. The result is a more standard short board look and feel. The HELLFIRE has more of the on-rail; in the pocket drivey feel that you trust in your “normal” short board. Suggested lengths are 2” to 4” SHORTER than your regular short board, or 2” to 4” LONGER than your hybrid.
RF is a hybrid technology, combining the carbon rod suspension of DD 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.'
