Product Info

The NEW Sweet Potato is the refined swallowtail version of the original Sweet Potato - the board that transformed what surfing is for Dan Mann (and he hopes many others). The Sweet Potato with Volcanic converts waves that would normally require a longboard (or even just be a non-surf day) into loads and loads of fun because of the insane amount of volume packed into a very short board that is loose and packs tons of drive. The trademark deep double barrel concave essentially splits the board in half when tipped over and driving through turns, making the board feel way more narrow than it actually is. The new tail outline, combined with some tweaks on the bottom contours through the fins, has increased the maneuverability for tighter pocket turns without taking away the projection and grovel speed in gutless surf.

Product Construction

Helium Core
Flexy. Bendy. Elastic. Excellent at generating speed when weak waves aren’t helping. An unmatched mix of quick response, lightweight, and durability. Helium has wood running from nose to tail on each rail similar to Timbertek but instead of being purely paulownia, Helium’s rail is built from a mix of both paulownia and balsa wood. This enables more bend in Helium’s rail when compared to the more ridged sensations of Timbertek’s rail and it makes Helium feel like it loads up on rail and springs back to form, ideal for tight turns on compact wave faces, and eruptive shows of spray when meeting the lip vertically.

Volcanic Lamination
Quicker response, stronger durability, forged in fire, this Basalt lamination enhancement for I-Bolic and Helium cores is Firewire's most durable without compromising performance.

Additional Info

Basalt fiber has been around for decades yet is a relative newcomer to fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) and structural composites as it relates to surfboard construction. It has a similar chemical composition as glass fiber but has better strength characteristics, and unlike most glass fibers is highly resistant to alkaline, acidic and salt attack making it a good candidate for surfboard manufacturing.

Compared to carbon and aramid fiber, it has the features of wider application temperature range -452° F to 1,200° F (-269° C to +650° C), higher oxidation resistance, higher radiation resistance, relative compression and shear strength.

The cloth can withstand higher temperatures than that of carbon fiber and as a result is heavily used the Aerospace industry in the creation of rockets and jet engines. The elasticity characteristics of this fiber is higher than that of traditional Carbon fiber allowing the board to have more flex for a natural feel under foot.
