The Firewire No Brainer LFT Surfboard was designed by Dan Mann to be ridden in small waves. Its unique design includes very little rocker and a double barrel that runs a little farther up the length of the board with a spiral vee and swallow tail. This lends to the board fitting in a tighter pocket. The No Brainer is a performance board geared towards both advanced and intermediate surfers.
“The No Brainer is so easy to surf well, you can shred on it even if you don’t have a brain. The Rocker is a tried and true template I’ve relied on for a long time in grovelers. I’ve modified it slightly for Kelly, adding flip in the nose and tail. Kelly and I have been going back-and-forth on four or five variations of the No Brainer and we’ve landed on something I think is really magic – the kind of board that an advanced and talented surfer can grovel and shred on but at the same time something that all other levels of surfer can ride in small to decent sized surf. The bottom contour is made up of a subtle belly v in the nose that goes into a moderate single concave under the chest. Within that single concave is a double concave that runs through nearly the entire length of the board. Even through the fins. But in the last five or so inches of the board it turns into a spiral V, because since I started working with Kelly over the last couple years, I’ve learned that V is something really critical to him in most of his shapes. I recommend surfing this board with your favorite quad set. “ - Dan Mann

Linear Flex Technology
LFT construction incorporates a white deckskin into their proven sandwich EPS construction methodology as well as the Springer HD, a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the center-line of the board, representing the next generation in Firewire's Springer technology. Though Linear Flex Technology may appear to be a simple construction employing familiar design philosophies found in traditionally built surfboards, nothing could be further from the truth. The Springer HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail. The end result is a durable surfboard with lively flex patterns that will maintain its hi-performance characteristics over time.
