Developed in collaboration between Taj's father Vance Burrow and Nev, the ADDvance offers extreme flotation in RapidFire technology. Combining the buoyancy of a longboard with a contemporary outline, the ADDvance Series opens up new possibilities for fun and performance. ADDvance your surfing! We’ve also added a 5/4/3 fin configuration for the coming year.
RF is a hybrid technology, combining the carbon rod suspension of DD with a bamboo top deck skin.
Developed in conjunction with Surfboard Suspension Systems, RF's core is shaped from 2lb fused EPS foam and the bamboo skin is applied using Firewire's proven sandwich construction. Unlike FST and DD, the 2lb foam and bamboo deck sandwich do not require a vent.
The interior carbon rods work with the bamboo skin to optimize flex patterns, maximizing speed and drive through turns, and while not as dent resistant as the DD or FST aerospace composite skin, the bamboo does create significant compression strength. Please note our boards are definitely not indestructible and if slammed by a thick lip, or if you land incorrectly in the flats after doing an aerial, it is possible to break them.
RF’s flex characteristic is similar to FST and the overall effect is a highly tuned surfboard with increased performance over traditional surfboard constructions. RF retails in line with premium PU surfboards.
So whether you prefer the pinnacle technology of Direct Drive, the Parabolic Balsa Rail performance of Future Shapes Technology or the hybrid technology of RapidFIRE, Firewire continues to define the 'Future of Shape.'
Please understand that because shipping a surfboard is different for each board, location and customer the shipping cost will vary from one order to the next. To account for this variable sometimes the full shipping amount will not be reflected in your checkout total. The balance of the shipping charge will be applied after the final quote has been verified and confirmed with both parties.

The Addvance has to be one of the ugliest boards on the planet, second only to the Sweet Potato, but like the Sweet potato, it is ultra fun to ride.
The board floats like a barge but still carves pretty well. It has progressive rocker so it is pretty loose, yet lacks the skatey drive of a flatter board like the Sweet Potato or Randy French Quad Fish.( which I love) It is a different animal altogether. A nimble tube rider it is not, but this board makes a great alternative to riding a longboard and is much more versatile. I have ridden it in waist high slop and steep overhead walls with lots of juice. Safe to say it is a keeper and is really unique. Go ahead and heckle me all you pro bros of mine. Surfing is for fun. As long as you keep your ego in check and don't take your sessions on the Addvance too seriously, the Firewire Addvance makes for a good time. Enjoy!!
