Firewire Greedy Beaver
The Firewire Greedy Beaver has built a solid fan base in a relatively short period of time. Don’t be fooled by the longboard nose, the Greedy Beaver is a rebel in disguise. Designed to paddle fast, catch waves early and perform from the tail like a true shortboard. The Greedy Beaver will leave you with a permanent grin in weaker, fatter waves.

From the shaper
The Greedy Beaver is a true “crossover” board with the paddle and glide of a mid-length and the agility of a shortboard. Plant your back foot and the GB is happy on a rail, capable in the pocket and reliable in steeper waves. Negotiating the flats is a breeze, a large planing area and a pronounced single to double concave will speed you across the mush.

what we like
The Greedy Beaver is instantly pleasing on the eye; Firewire’s TimberTek construction, smooth and curvy lines with and a beautiful rounded pintail. This might sound a little crass, but the GB is a classy “cut-n-shut”, with a generous mal front end and the rear end of a performance shortboard.... Rolls Royce comfort and glide with the speed and control of a BMW M3!
The Firewire Greedy Beaver really is a joy to ride and really comes to life in good quality waves. While it’s not the board to attack hollow barrelling waves, the Greedy Beaver really works when you’ve got a bit of face to work with.
Sizing the Greedy Beaver
This board will serve a wide range of abilities and styles depending on how it’s sized. If you’re an accomplished shortboarder looking for a summer stick, or a board for weaker conditions, you’ll love the smaller 5ft 6 and 5ft 8 sizes.
The Greedy Beaver also makes a great first shortboard, with early wave entry, stability and a true shortboard feel under the back foot. Older guys are flocking to the GB, lured by its split personality, generous float and performance in decent waves. Longboarders looking for a smaller travel board are loving the compact size and loving its prowess in the quality waves they’re encountering around the globe.

The Greedy Beaver is absolutely brilliant. I've always loved renting longboards for the smaller days or the slower waves but never wanted to travel with one. I missed so many nice clean but small or mushy sessions because I had the wrong board. The Greedy Beaver is the perfect compromise. It takes off on anything, glidese through the mushy sections and you can actually pump your way through the fast inside sections and attack the lip. It is so easy and fun to ride its ridiculous. I now have a portable longboard and a quiver that enables me to surf everyday whatever the conditions without getting frustrated. My buddies who were surfing their shortboards in these conditions were going crazy while we were catching 200m - 300m waves to the beach.
I could never travel without this board again, it should be a staple to any quiver. One thing we did note is that the new FCS2 system is absolutely brilliant (I couldn't figure out at first why I had no screws in my fin plugs...), just clip in your fins.
Ian's advice on size and volume was perfect despite my endless doubts and questions. Service at boardshop is really perfect. With the Greedy at 6'4 I was a little worried it would be too big but it's so maneuverable I could nearly go longer. With my 83kg had no problem even on waist high mushy waves.

Just wanted to drop you a mail to say I'm super happy with the greedy beaver! I've had it out for a couple of surfs and I can tell it's going to really help me improve my surfing. Your advice on sizing was spot on, thank you for all your help. I was a bit dubious about buying a board online and 'un-seen' but you made the process very smooth and easy. I'll be back again I'm sure!
Happy new year,
