From the shaper

The Firewire Addvance is the love child of Taj Burrows father Vance and long time Firewire collaborator Nev Hyman. Never before has a surfboard packed quite as much volume into what is a pretty modern shape. With a Five Fin configuration the Addvance has endless possibilities and is guaranteed to inject some serious fun back into your surfing.

What We Like

I grabbed a 6ft 8 Addvance from the Firewire demo fleet and headed west for the weekend. On arrival it was obvious that Tragic Mislead had inexplicably over estimated the forecast 4 to 5ft swell! Still, I bit the bullet and paddled out on the Addvance in two foot of glass.

Surprising performance

Once I’d got used to the buoyancy I started to have some fun. I caught almost everything I paddled for and managed to out paddle most of the longboarders on the peak. Any reservations I had about the board were completely unfounded. In fact I had one of those magic summer sessions that I won’t forget in a hurry.

Who’s the Addvance for?

The Addvance is a very adaptable surfboard. The larger sizes appeal to the bigger guy who needs some extra volume or the longboarder looking for a more manoeuvrable board in better conditions.

The smaller sizes are a great option for the smaller rider looking for a first “shortboard”, and a brilliant option for the adept surfer who wants to have fun in smaller waves.

Choosing your construction

The Firewire Addvance Surfboard is available in either LFT or TimberTek construction, both of which are more durable than standard PU (fibreglass). For the average surfer this is often an aesthetic decision with only minute differences in performance detectable by experienced surfers only.
