Nev Hyman has a successful 35+ year history in the surf industry and is recognized as one of the best shapers in the world. Nev has been instrumental in developing Future Shapes Technology and designing the pure performance potential of Firewire Surfboards. Drawing on his actual shaping expertise and combining it with the unlimited design capabilities of Firewire's CAD/CAM platform, Nev has the tools to take surfboard design into the next frontier, a place where materials have as important an influence on performance as proven design principles.
Firewire is stoked to have two-time World Longboard Champion Taylor Jensen on its pro team. Taylor and Dan Mann developed the TJ Pro with slightly more aggressive bottom contours and a touch more kick in the tail than the stock 9'0 TJ Everyday. The TJ Pro will go vertical while still maximizing the fun of cruising on a longer board.
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.
