Product Details

The Firewire Hashtag surfboard is all new for 2014 from the performance hybrid range of Firewire surfboards. The Hashtag has its heritage in the Firewire Hellrazor. Head shaper Nev took the Hellrazor and tweaked it to give a board that will perform in slacker waves (perfect for the UK!). The tail rocker is flattened out and volume has been added to give a board that gives more drive and acceleration when those perfect conditions are lacking. The rounded tail has a step down (like the Spitfire) which makes for smooth surfing especially when linking turns, it also improves hold in the face of the wave. The Hashtag has medium entry rocker for ease of paddling and wave catching and the double concave kicks in from the mid section of the board and deepens through the fins. What this means is that the board surfs smoothly when you're cruising but comes to life when you start to push it rail to rail. A great step up from a pure hybrid board for an intermediate surfer or a great alternative all round shortboard for the more accomplished surfer.

The rapid response flex memory in the Future Shapes Technology used in these surfboards yields great speed through the turns whilst the parabolic rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years.

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.

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 is pushing the limits of applying new technology and innovation to surfboard design and always has an eye on the environmental impact of what they do, they truly are different to the other board companies out there. A big chunk of the boards in the range are perfectly suited to the waves that 90% of us surf on a regular basis so if you haven't already give them a try. The staff here have surfed pretty much every board in the Firewire range at some time or another and we speak to surfers from all over the world and get their feedback on how the boards perform in all sorts of conditions so we're well placed to talk about all aspects of Firewire surfboards.

Fast Delivery, Great Board.
This was the first board i ordered online and I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first, I didn't know if the board would come in good shape because of the long shipping distance to Azores. Let me start by saying that boardshop packing is exelente, and their shipping method is fast. Now the Board, i think the board is excellent, the materials are lighter and stronger. the board is fast, at least compared to what i was riding (Lost Sub Driver). Still in the early parts of testing but definitely satisfied. Thanks :)
Solid performance hybrid
Very nice board, I use mine (6' 0) as a step up from a 5' 10 Dominator and it works well. It feels just a bit sharper in better waves and paddles surprisingly well given the drop in volume and the medium nose rocker. The flatter tail rocker really helps get around those sections but I think the other elements (double concave and step down rails) mean it doesn't seem to carry you too far out on the face of the wave. I think if you like the Dominator you'll like this for better days, the FST works very well with the board and as expected is very light, it's just a very good and well balanced performance board. Finally , I should add that I used them with FCS Performers, the tail rocker is really flat and I don't think the board will like a fin with a lot of rake to it but the Performers went very well. Unfortunately they are pretty hard to come by, so if I decide I need a backup 6' 0, you'll have to be quick because I may buy another!

I bought my Hashtag to use as a small wave
I bought my Hashtag to use as a small wave board, but after riding it all week in 2-6ft surf, it has exceeded my expectations. Easy to paddle and catch waves, but when pushed hard on the rails, it hold in. The fastest board I've had and it makes each surf exciting. Definitely recommend this board. Also great experience buying from Boardshop, as these guys are really helpful.
Just received the Hashtag today, very well packed. Very professional

As for your services, can't be more satisfied. Good prices, lot's of models, quickness, care, super custumer support. The best surf webshop I know.
