Firewire Helium Stubby Bastard surfboard 5ft 11 FCS II - White
Firewire took what has been John John's go-to competition surfboard (the Pyzel Bastard) and squished it down into a rapid and skatey little pocket rocket that'll cope with head-high days and still hold its own in the junky fare most of us encounter day-to-day.
The original Bastard was tamed by trimming 3 inches off the nose, reducing the entry rocker and adding a little extra volume up front. The shortening naturally pushed the wide point forward and the rails were plumped-up to increase the volume. No change underneath, the Stubby Bastard sticks with an unchanged set of bottom contours, a single concave throughout. The result is a fast and responsive shortboard that fits into curvy waves with a pocket but can also maintain its flow and speed in junky and weaker waves.
Firewire’s Helium tech is all about making an already amazing set of construction options even better. Its lighter, seems strong, no signs of any pressure marks at all, and very fast. The top and bottom skins are parabolic rail set up is a new Paulownia/Balsa mix which is meant to give faster flex response. Having surfed the tech in a couple of different models it does feel light but the speed through a stiffer feel and responsiveness is exceptional, Helium is here to stay.

It's hpsb with hybrid DNA . So a little bit off push is what you need to make this board work.
And it takes 3 days for the board from UK To Holland in a good wrapped up packaging
