The Firewire GromFlex is a morphed down version of the high performance FlexFire, for all those frothing Groms who paddle deeper, take off on anything and just want to smash and boost above the lip.

The designs feature a slightly thicker and wider nose than the FlexFires combined with a thicker tail area and slightly blockier rails in the tail.

Groms are already pushing surfing to new limits and NEED boards that can keep up!

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, we like it!
