With an incredible feel for details, Kelly has fine-tuned the elements of the Firewire Gamma Helium 6'8 Surfboard to further aid in clean, everyday performance surfing. Though Kelly has worked with several great shapers this past year on an array of different shapes, it was his excitement with the speed and quick direction changes provided by this personal design that held his intrigue. His interest in Cad board design, modifying variables, and testing and retesting has lead to the development of an incredible all-around shortboard. The highly functional, easy executing Gamma was the result.

With a single concave bottom and slight vee behind the back fin this board is extremely fast and drivey. The vee out the back makes for quick rail to rail transitions. Within the high-performance shortboard range, this would be considered a medium rocker, with a medium, to even a slightly pinched rail. The distinct hip on the Gamma gives it a tighter turning radius allowing it to be ridden in a shorter, wider set of dimensions as well as the common performance shortboard dims. Sure to be underfoot on this year's title run, the Gamma is Kelly’s go-to utility shortboard for the season.

Construction

Helium Technology
Firewire's Helium construction is a breakthrough in extremely lightweight and durable performance epoxy technology. By pairing existing features from the highly successful FST (Future Shapes Technology) build process with an alternative sandwich skin material, Firewire has created Helium construction which uses this new composite in conjunction with a redesigned parabolic wood rail that includes both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is that Helium has a +15% weight reduction over FST, a slightly faster flex and rebound characteristic, as well as a higher breakpoint. Lighter, stronger and more responsive... Helium is the future under your feet.
