Just in from Firewire Surfboards is the Chubby Chedda! This is a new design collaboration between Firewire and LSD. Currently only available in FST. Looks really fun for summer time waves, and kind of reminds me of the Sub Scorcher a bit.
Chubby Chedda Foil
The Chubby Chedda is best described as a ‘performance-hybrid’, and should be ridden at least two inches shorter than your standard high performance short board. And if push comes to shove, the design will hold its own in overhead surf as well.
Available in spring 2013, Firewire’s new Technograin surfboard construction is a fresh and more eco-freindly way to make a surfboard. The new boards will be made from Paulownia wood, a tree species that can grown up to 20ft in its first year, and a popular source of sustainable wood.
Technograin 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 sustainability built, Firewire’s Technograin has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially available surfboard today.
And perhaps as critical when it comes to your equipment, the combination of a lightweight EPS Core, a sustainably-grown wood deck skin on both the top and bottom decks which includes Firewire’s proprietary parabolic rail construction and an entropy bio-resin hot coat without any exterior cloth, creates an extremely light weight, durable surfboard, with all of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire’s existing technologies. Or as we like to describe Technograin………..It’s simply high performance art.
For their first run it will be available in both the Spitfire and the Baked Potato models. The Spitfire is a performance hybrid that performs well in knee high to overhead surf. The Baked Potato is a great board for mushier waves with less juice, from ankle biters to head high waves, this board can hold its own. Both boards have a five fin setup for either quad, thruster, or funky configurations.
Firewire Surfboards and FCS just committed to donating 100 boards to the Share the Stoke Foundation, an organization that gives boards to kids in coastal communities who don’t have the means to obtain a board themselves. If you have old boards that you aren’t using please take the time to consider their wonderful cause and donate.
