Firewire Surfboards Firewire Hydroshort Helium Surfboard
The Firewire Hydroshort Helium Surfboard is a next generation Tomo Shortboard design. Inspired by the functional aesthetic of the Hydronaut, the Hydroshort is tuned for maximum performance in small to medium waves with consideration for artificial waves.
Highlighted by the ultra-modern ‘torpedo nose ‘profile the Hydroshort has an incredible rail to rail flow and low swing weight at the front end which translates to a feeling of instant response. Coupled with a clean continuous, (medium) rocker curve and the Quad inside single concave (QISC) the Hydroshort is ready for maximum wave attack with tremendous burst of speed.
The squash tail version is slightly favorable to flatter face and weaker wave conditions.
- TAIL: Squash
- FIN CONFIGURATION: Tri-Quad. Fins Not Included.
- FINS: Futures or FCSII
- CONSTRUCTION: Helium Technology
- SURFBOARD TYPE: Shortboard
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.
