Traditionalist rejoice because the Firewire Special T TimberTek Surfboard is the modern answer to your classic shape needs. Keeping with a traditional outline, the Special T tightens here and pinches there creating a smooth sailing glider that can be ridden all over the wave.

"Despite his preference for high-performance longboarding, Taylor is an accomplished noserider so he wanted his Firewire models to include a design more suited to traditional longboarding. I've personally always enjoyed the stylish nature of the 'old school' and in particular, riding an original Phil Edwards board that my dad has."

"After a ton of input from Taylor combined with my own experience, we developed The Special T. The rails have a soft 50/50 curve, along with a scoop nose concave and extra tail flip. We also relaxed the nose entry rocker to enhance tip riding, allowing riders maximum glide and trim with ease." - Dann Mann

Firewire's TimberTek construction represents a significant step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today's environmentally conscious world. Firewire's TimberTek has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially available surfboard today. The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown Paulownia wood deck skins, Firewire's proprietary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat yield an extremely lightweight, durable surfboard with ALL of the high-performance flex characteristics of Firewire's existing technologies.

Firewire Surfboards Special T TimberTek Surfboard A Fun SessionReview by Tom Tom
I rode the demo of this board at Shorty's last summer and had fun on it. I normally ride heavily glassed retro longboards, so I was a bit apprehensive about how the Timber Tech would feel, the weight, the flex, etc. This board is definitely an old school ride, but could cut back really fast due to the edge in the tail. Not as much flex as other Firewire boards I've rode, which was good. Knee paddled well. Caught waves easily. Rode the nose pretty good. I only had one session on it, but I think I could grow to enjoy ridding it more if I were to move the fin around in the box or try other fins. Well worth considering buying if you want a retro longboard with some built in performance.
