A fish for the modern surfer, the Firewire Surfboards Go Fish LFT Surfboard leaves nothing to be desired. Style surfer and emerging shaper, Rob Machado derived the Go Fish from a classic keel twin fish shape, thinned out the profile and added Greenough inspired bottom features. Narrowing up the swallow tip to tip gives the board more maneuverability and the narrower nose gives it an even speedier outline. The rocker is fairly relaxed with a low entry rocker upfront combined with a subtle tail rocker, giving this board quick ‘up and go’ and maximizes its top-end speed.

The bottom contours are best described as “Board Eat Board”, featuring a really flat bottom concave that runs down the center all the way through the tail. The two side panels run down each rail on either side of the center panel, and transition from concave to flat to Vee while maintaining the deep single concave down the middle. The overall effect of these design parameters, when combined with a keel fin set up, is a highly maneuverable and speedy board with tons of drive and takes the retro fish to a whole new performance level.

"This board just makes me want to surf… no matter what the waves are like. It flies in small to weak waves, and if its overhead and pumping it draws unique lines, allowing me to approach waves differently and explore new lines." - Rob Machado

Construction

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.

Firewire Surfboards Go Fish LFT Surfboard This thing is an absolute magic carpet!Review by Scott Scott

Bought this as a smallwave board and because I wanted a bit of that twin fin cruise factor. Man, this thing is rad. I just want to surf it all the time! It absolutely flies down the line and really digs on carves for a fish. It’s even more fun when the waves have some punch/size.

Bought it 5’11” @ 35L (I’m 6’3”, 191lbs) and it’s perfect. Also got the Machado Keels. Super solid feeling.

One thing I did notice though.... the glassing on this one is a little weaker than my SKX. After just 2 weeks of use in smallish waves, I already have pressure dings in the deck. My SKX on the other hand has been surfed for months in powerful overhead waves, carted around on international flights, and doesn’t have a single dent, ding, or scratch on it. Very strange.

The Firewire Rob Machado Go Fish is such a rad board. As a longboarder drifting towards shorter boards, I appreciate how this board offers both the smooth, buttery glide of a longboard while maintaining snappy, responsive, and speedy maneuverability. I felt like this board just wanted to be in the pocket, but proved to transition quite well to screaming down the line effortlessly. It paddles really, really smooth, duck dives quite easily, and only took a few tries to be able to sit on it in the lineup. I picked up a 5'9", and it contrasts my 6'2" Firewire Slater SciFi quite nicely. This is an excellent board for anything from everyday slop, to overhead + heavy days. The only dissatisfaction I have is that I cant get enough of this board. Such a dream.
