Firewire Evo Surfboard

The Firewire Evo has been a game changer. The Holy Grail of the “one board quiver” is at last a reality. It relishes thigh-high days and punches above its weight when it’s head-high and a bit over! Technically the board has a lot going on; space age construction, channels, split quad concaves and the glaringly obvious lack of a pointy nose....It’s a mind set.

From the shaper - Daniel Thompson (Tomo)

This board is a modern incarnation of the MPH (modern planning hull). Immediately pleasing on the eye with a curvy outline which lends itself to seamlessly smooth changes of direction and made to measure for pocket surfing. Compared to the Vader, the Evo is a little wider at the mid-point and thereby a little more comfortable in smaller and mushier conditions.

Why We Love The Firewire Evo

It has proven to be one of the most versatile surfboards we’ve ever stocked. Not only does the board really work in the conditions that most of our customers surf, but it works for a pretty broad spectrum of riders too.


Guys lucky enough to regularly surf the better quality waves in the UK and Europe have loved its ability to “fit” in the pocket and how its shorter length lends itself to snappier turns. First surfs on a new board can be a little difficult, but this magic board seems to have wowed our customers from the get-go. We’ve had guys ring us still in their wetsuits frothing about the speed and how it’s breathed life into their surfing and refreshed their surfing mojo.

User Friendly

For us lesser mortals who aren’t blessed with perfectly groomed waves arriving weekly and have to make do with less than perfect and very inconsistent swells the Firewire Evo was initially an unknown quantity. However it was soon apparent that this little surfboard had a few tricks up its sleeve and has proven to be the go-to board for guys looking to make the most out of what’s on offer.

The boards speed and relatively short length are absolutely perfect to squeeze every ounce out of smaller and weaker waves us every day Joes are served.

The Mighty Evo
I have had more fun surfing an Evo than any other board. I bought an Evo 5’7” when they first came out and loved it. I eventually had to pass it on as I rapidly approach bus pass age. I’m now on a 5’9” Helium 2 which has the same fast and loose feel but paddles in a lot more easily. I surf local beach breaks and for me the Evo goes well in waist to head high plus waves. It generates plenty of speed, especially as a quad and works in onshore wobble but is a gem of a board in chest plus clean waves. The new Helium construction has a nice ‘tight’ feel seems to fly over mushy sections. Highly recommended as an all rounder.

Great Customer Service and products
I recently ordered and received the new EVO 5' 10" which looks great. Ian and Matt were really helpful advising me of the appropriate size board for me, and recommending a set of FCS II fins. They also kept me informed of the external delivery delays due to the covid situation. The board was well packaged and arrived to my home in perfect condition.
I've not had a chance to use them yet due to the lockdown, but keen to get out there asap.
I highly recommend using BOARDSHOP and happy to give 5 stars !

legendary construction and shape
I am 80-85kg, bad to average surfer, and I got the 5'6 with large FCS II performers, and the board goes and paddles like its got an engine under it, especially impressive in mushy onshore conditions. If you are quite heavy and have a lousy technique in sub par conditions I recommend this board.

After reading many reviews on many different sites I had to get one of these boards. I went for the 5'7" which is much smaller than i'd normally go for, but hey why not. I took the board out at The Wave on the Advanced, Advanced Plus, and Expert Sessions. Gotta say that the speed of it caught by surprise on the first wave (i've been surfing a Glazer recently). After the first couple of waves i found it amazing, it paddles well, easy to catch the waves, super fast, and turns really well. I found it worked on all wave settings i tried. Looking forward to surfing it again next week at The Wave and in the sea in the not too distant future. I definitely feel like this is a board that will help to progress my surfing even at the age of 47

EVO Fliesss
Wow! Absolutely unreal board! It levitates, came off a 5’9 glazer and this is so much more fun to surf. Never had to pump to generate speed, board does that for you. 100% size down though, small as you can go. Dropped down about 2.5 litres in volume and was a great decision! Paddles like a mal so definitely don’t need the volume to help you get in early! Surfed it loads and not a pressure mark on it. So much better than PU. Surfed in 2-6 foot and never caught a rail, can push it pretty hard!

Evo Helium 2
Got my first Evo on the first run on LFT ones in 2015, loved it, but moved on after a couple of years. Had a bunch of boards in between and have just got the helium 2 version. I’d forgotten how great they are, so responsive, they just do what you want them to, they feel like they have more float then the written dims, under size for sure. I’m 75kg ish and very average at surfing and ride a 5’6. Could even go smaller, and would be shorter by 2 inches than my fish, my preference board is 5’11. Long and short, don’t wait around, just get one. Does your surfing a favour and makes you feel like you are much better then you are!

As is the norm’ I get a new board and the Surf goes flat, so Not had a chance to try it out yet,
Had an EVO before and loved it, so my review was for the customer service,
and as always the service at boardshop is second to none.
I’d give 6 starts if I could
Verified buyer
Bought the evo in 5'10, absolutely love it so fast but forgiving feel like it's given my surfing a new boost,.
Probably could have bought the 5'9 but wanted a bit more float for the winter rubber
Verified buyer
Great board, great service
This board is so fast, don't be affraid to get really smaller than your usual board.
I buy all my boards in boardshop, great service as usual, especially for advices about sizing!
