Description

Details

An alternative craft with traditional shortboard bones, the Firewire Midas LFT Surfboard brings a fresh perspective to everyday surf conditions. The outline of the MIDAS evolved from a few different influences. The tail was inspired by some 80’s twin fins and the wing is positioned right behind the trailing edge of the side fin to create a break point, and to pull the tips of the swallow closer together for maneuverability. The wing also creates more width in front of the fins which generates increased speed. The nose is a touch wider than your everyday short board but without an ‘eggy’ feel. The wider nose and tail dimensions reduce the curve in the middle of the board which also helps generate 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 is increased performance and speed.

CONSTRUCTION LFT Construction

Linear Flex Technology

Firewire's Linear Flex Technology construction incorporates the Springer HD into their proven sandwich EPS construction methodology. The Springer HD is 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.
