Brand: Firewire
For auction is this great board from the world renowned shapers at Firewire . It is a 'Chubby Chedda' model, based on Julian Wilson's signature expression session Chubby Checker.
I am a great hoarder of new boards and have only surfed it twice in Morocco earlier this year (the rest of the trip the waves were too big for it).. I bought it new and I am am now selling it (along with all my other shortboards) due to a nasty knee injury.

The dimensions and details are as follows - Firewire 'Chubby Chedda', 5'11" x 19 1/2" x 2 1/2  30.9 litres volume, FST, white" designed by Luke Short from LSD  (great shaper, google him). It has a 3 fin FCS thruster set up. I can probably raid the fin box and sell it with a set of standard thruster fins if you need some. I have some more progressive premium fins that we could negotiate over. It has a good amount of volume under the chest and is medium/  fairly flat rockered so paddles fast, catches anything and goes well from knee high up to about 1.5 x overhead (that's the biggest i've surfed it in). It is a great board for airs and generally ripping but still suits a range of abilities (due to it's width and volume). It is also a great board for summer. 

Here is what Firewire say about it: 

"Designed by Luke Short, the Chubby Chedda is a refined version of the original Chubby Checker, a favorite of many including Julian Wilson when he's free surfing or pushing it in expression sessions.
Luke widened the outline slightly while adding a subtle hip behind the front fins, adding more whip through turns. The concaves are also deeper, creating more 'get up and go', and the tail rocker has been accentuated for the perfect blend of speed and responsiveness".

Sam Lamiroy says:

It is virtually new, with no pressure marks on the deck. Both times i've surfed it i've unfortunately done a tiny bit of damage to it. The first time I dropped in on my mate and his fin put a small hole in the nose, right on the end. I instantly got out (important not to get water in Firewires) and it was repaired (as pictured). The repair is small, makes absolutely no difference to the board and is well sealed. The second time I surfed it I put a small pressure mark near the tail pad (also pictured). Except for that it is brand spanking, with no general wear and tear at all.

No reserve on the auction and, if you want to pay cash on collection (preferred) please let me know.

Collection only please. Questions welcome (07866770404 or email)

Happy bidding.
