The Gem is a collaboration between Dan Mann and 2X World Longboard Champion Taylor Jensen.

Earlier this year Taylor asked Dan to consider a ‘one board in the trunk’ option for long boarders who want both trim and turns; he was essentially asking Dan for a design that would land somewhere between his TJPro and his TJEveryday.

Dan’s response was an intriguing intersection of shortboard style concaves with a longboard style outline and the same fin placements that Taylor likes in all his boards.

He and Taylor decided to call this model The Gem because of how valuable it is – a one board quiver for 9 foot plus board riders that can trim on the nose as easily as it can carve on rail.

The diamond tail isn’t a coincidence. It’s a Gem.

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
