Product Details

As the name implies, the Firewire Potato-Nator surfboard is the result of gene-splicing the super-fun Sweet Potato and the legendary Dominator. With a longer more pulled-out rail line and less girth than the Sweet Potato, and a slightly pulled in nose similar to the Dominator, the Potato-Nator is meant to be ridden 4 to 6 inches longer than a regular Sweet Potato, and approximately 2 inches shorter than the Dominator. The double concaves are softer than the Sweet Potato's and while the overall rocker has been increased slightly for enhanced performance, it still has that low entry rocker for easy paddling, and early wave catching is still a breeze. Primarily designed for surf in the waist to shoulder high range, the Potato-Nator can still hold its own in head high and over conditions as well. Splice and dice it up! The Potatonator could well be that 'one board quiver' we've all been looking for(depending on the waves you regularly surf).

If you regularly charge overhead hollow waves you're still gonna need a performance shortboard, but if your local break generally serves up waist to head high surf then the Potatonator just might be that 'magic stick' we all dream about..

More than happy to perform in waist high slop and perfectly equipped to be snapped around in head high conditions..

The Potatonator has been unbelievably well received, with pretty much across the board rave reviews.

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 from 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.

Boardshop is stoked to be a key partner for Firewire surfboards across Europe and beyond, we've been with them since the very start.
Firewire surfboards are more durable than other surfboard manufacturing processes, and for 90% of surfers they will improve your surfing. 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.
Firewire have come a long way since the early boards and the range of shapes and tech just gets better and better. 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.

We're happy to consider trading in your old board against a new Firewire, so If you have any questions about this we'd be delighted to answer them and advise on any potential board choices or enquiries you might have, just drop us an email to info@boardshop.co.uk or call us on 0044 (0) 1243 674250.
