A trimmed down version of the grovel-tastic Sweet Potato, the Firewire Potatonator TimberTek Surfboard gives you more maneuverability on the face. As the name implies, the Potatonator is the result of gene-splicing the Sweet Potato and the Dominator. With a longer rail line and less girth than the Potato, and a slightly pulled in nose similar to the Dominator, the Potatonator is meant to be ridden 4”-6” longer than a Potato, and approx. 2” shorter than the DM. The double concaves are softer than the Sweet Potato and while the overall rocker has been increased slightly to enhanced performance, the low entry rocker remains which makes paddling a breeze. Designed primarily for 2’-4’ surf, the Potatonator will hold its own in 3’-5’ as well. Fin placement is optimized to be ridden as a quad, but don't be afraid to throw in a small, knubby trailer fin to help this hybrid come alive in new ways. Splice and dice it up!

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.
