Channeling a quantity not quality philosophy, the Firewire Sweet Potato LFT Surfboard will bring up your wave count and give you plenty of opportunities to work on your shortboard fundamentals. Loaded with volume and set up for slow, clunky surf, the Sweet Potato dramatically changes the ratio between the length and width of a board while still allowing the design to perform at a very high level.
"The aggressive bottom contour creates considerable lift and the deep double concave with a "spine" down the middle divide the board in half isolating the fins, rocker and bottom on one side of the board at a time. This allows the board to get on a rail quickly. The Sweet Potato is the board you should always bring on a surf check, and you'll find yourself ripping on small days where you'd otherwise go home." - Dan Mann

CONSTRUCTION LFT Bamboo Construction
Linear Flex Technology
Firewire's Linear Flex Technology construction incorporates a bamboo deckskin into their proven sandwich EPS construction methodology as well as the Springer HD, a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the center-line of the board, representing the next generation in Firewire's Springer technology. Though Linear Flex Technology may appear to be a simple construction employing familiar design philosophies found in traditionally built surfboards, nothing could be further from the truth. The Springer HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail. The end result is a durable surfboard with lively flex patterns that will maintain its hi-performance characteristics over time.
