Win the Firewire Go Fish Surfboard
Firewire and Rob Machado are back at it in 2017 with the release of the Go Fish as well as some more shapes to be released later in the year. The newest board from the free-surfing, free-thinking Machado is a high performance twin fish with thin rail line, tight fishy tail and Rob's new "Board Eat Board" bottom. Cleanline got to test this one out and it proved to be super quick when the wave lacks gut, but can charge bigger surf on the rails.
Meet the Go Almond Butter:
Machado says, "This board just makes me want to surf... no matter what the waves are like. It flies in small to weak waves, and if its overhead and pumping it draws unique lines, allowing me to approach waves differently and explore new lines.
At first glance the outline pays homage to the old school fish but on closer inspection you’ll notice some subtle changes. I’ve nar-rowed up the swallow tip to tip to give the board more maneuverability and the nar-rower nose gives it a more speedier outline. The rocker is fairly relaxed with a low entry rocker upfront combined with a subtle tail rocker, giving this board quick ‘up and go’ and maximizes its top-end speed."
The bottom contours are best described as “BOARD EAT BOARD” and were inspired by a George Greenough design I rode a few years ago. I’ve refined it over the years and it now features a really flat bottom concave that runs down the center all the way through the tail. The two side panels run down each rail on either side of the center panel, and transition from concave to flat to Vee while maintaining the deep single concave down the middle.
The overall effect of these design parame-ters, when combined with a keel fin set up, is a highly maneuverable and speedy board with tons of drive and takes the retro fish to a whole new performance level.
