Matt "Mayhem" Biolos is of course, the man who stands behind the surfboard designs that you get to choose from when buying a ...Lost surfboard. Firewire and Matt have been collaborating to bring you great shapes and designs in the latest technology and materials.
“The Lost Rocket proved to be a pivotal board in the history of our brand and its influence on the surfboard world is something we are very proud of,” explains Matt Biolos. “The various offspring we created from the design are some of the most popular boards in our fleet. The V2, a refined version of the original Rocket has been a favorite and we are completely stoked and flattered that Firewire has collaborated with us. The results are impressive!”
Matt explains “The V2 ROCKET has a bit less tail rocker, with less concave through the fins which creates a faster rail line under foot. I actually deepened the concave out of the tail as well. The soft wing helps retain the quick redirection off the top and lends more control in the bowl. The nose rocker is bent up more in the first 12” and the concave is brought further forward. Overall an easier board to ride for an average surfer in sub-par waves. it has more down the line drive and a bit less skateboard kick tail feel.”
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.
