From the designer: 

"If I had to describe the nuts and bolts of the FRKs design, I'd simply say it's made to make you forget it's there. When designing boards for Kelly I'm trying to remove as many variables as possible and make it something that can level up his talents, or the talents of other surfers, without any glitches, or ever feeling like its in your way."  - Dan Mann

CONSTRUCTION: LFT Technology 


Linear Flex Technology uses Firewire’s SPRINGER HD, a 18mm wide aerospace composite running down the centre of all LFT boards and is the latest in SPRINGER technology. The Springer HD plays a pivotal role in optimising flex from the nose to the tail. The EPS foam core weighs in at 680 grams and uses an Ultralight 1mm High compression decksin. The entropy bio resin which replaces petro-chemicals with bio-based materials for an environmentally friendly epoxy, makes this a Level One ECOBOARD Verified surfboard.

ABOUT THE BRAND

Firewire is know for innovating bold new technologies for surfboards that have made them a major player in the surfboard market. In recent years they have taken pride in research and improvements that reduces the impact their industry has on the environment. Originally started by Australian Nev Hyman in 1975, in Perth as Odyssey Surfboards, it became Nev Surfboards in 1981. After travelling Nev decided to pursue creation of blanks for some of the best surfers in the world, and with the years of experience he gained, he began to hone his craft for the perfect surfboard. 17 years later the name was changed again, to Nev Future Shapes, where it entered the global market, manufacturing over 5000 years a year with his growing crew.

 

Fast forward to 2004, Nev was introduced to Bert Berge who showed him a handmade surfboard featuring balsa rails and high-density composite top and bottom. By 2006 Firewire was officially becoming a global name, with boards generated from CAD/CAM software allowing for the perfect boards to be steadily produced without variations and imperfections in the shape. More recently Firewire has been dedicated and committed to manufacturing boards that will improve your experience with less impact on the environment. In this pursuit they have partnered with BLOOM Foam to develop a traction pad that is the most eco-friendly. After years of growing, developing and honing their craft as a company, they know create boards that cater to all ages and levels of expertise.

“Firewire believes that the combination of EPS/Epoxy and other high tech materials is where the future of surfboard technology lies. Our goal has always been to combine high performance surfing with increased durability resulting in a more sustainable surfboard that increases the fun factor for everyone who rides them. After multiple WSL event wins over the years, and Kelly’s incredible surfing during these last few months of El Nino waves all over the world, we believe in our proven track record for innovative designs and technology. The future under your feet." - Mark Price, CEO
