Firewire

Here is an almost brand new Firewire Alternator it's literally been used less than five times in varied conditions and is in immaculate condition. Fantastic board goes well in small to big surf the only reason for selling is I have another board I use more and don't give this the use it deserves. 

There is no reserve on this surfboard so grab yourself a bargain these retail at around £540.00 for a new one.  Dimensions are 6'2" x 19" x 2.5" rather than try and write my own description I have pasted in one from online.

The Firewire Alternator perfects the blend of short rails, generous curves and slightly thicker foil which means these boys turn on a sixpence but still paddle brilliantly. The Alternator is a real all rounder and works really well in our varied conditions. The rapid response flex memory in the Future Shapes Technology used in these boards yields great speed through the turns whilst the parabolic rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years.


Firewire surfboards feature some very distinct construction traits that set them aside form other boards currently available: 

1) parabolic balsa rails
2) dual density EPS and advanced composite core

The parabolic balsa rails flex at the start of a turn storing energy and rebound through the turn releasing built up energy in the form of speed. The spring back of the parabolic rails to the original rocker triggers rapid acceleration, like an arrow shot from a bow. The construction materials, a unique formulation of hi-tech epoxy resins and advanced composites mean that these boards maintain the lively feel you get with brand new polyurethane boards, but are up to 20% lighter and will last 5+ times longer. 

This manufacturing process has won environmental awards and has created a range of lightweight and durable custom boards that are quickly being recognised for their awesome performance. 

What this all means for surfers is a step forward in the age old trade off of performance versus durability that has traditionally limited polyurethane boards. The nature of the core technology in these boards allows them to rebound in and out of turns with little loss of speed. The secret to improved surfing is maintaining and using this speed to go higher, bigger, longer or whatever does it for you! 

Firewire also won the SURFBOARD OF THE YEAR award at the recent SIMA awards - that's basically the surf industry deciding who has done the best job, and is an extremely prestigious award. 

Thanks to 10 years of research and the expertise of shapers Nev Hyman and Dan Mann the future of surfing is changing, these guys are calling this Future Shapes Technology.
