Firewire LFT Midas surfboard 5ft 6 FCS II - White
The most obvious features on the Midas are the "Board Eat Board" bottom contours which essentially equate to having two boards working in your favour; the inner outline creates a flat bottom concave which runs all the way out through the fins, while the two side panels running down the rails flow from concave to flat vee, while still maintaining that deep single concave down the middle resulting in increased speed and peak performance.
I guess you could call the Midas a high performance hybrid which like all the Machado boards, paddles and catches waves like a dream. A definite step-up from the Go-Fish with a very drivey feel when you plant your back foot and load up the fins. The LFT Midas looks to be a real performer for beach breaks up to head high and would absolutely thrive on a lined up point.
If you're looking for that magic surfboard, a "grab-and-go" stick to fit in-between your groveller and your good wave step-up...your quest is over. The Midas is a really usable surfboard with more than enough performance for the vast majority of surfers in 90% of the conditions they encounter both at home and on their travels.
Linear Flex Technology (LFT) replaces the Rapidfire internal carbon rods with an 18mm wide composite Springer HD Suspension System that runs from nose to tail and includes a top-deck sheet to improve compression resistance. This high density insert creates additional strength through the centre with increased flex through the tail. The EPS top sheet buffer above the HD Springer allows for some compression but without the raised ridge and cracking that can occur with traditional wooden stringer surfboards. LFT delivers plenty of 'TWANG' in and out of your turns and creates the fast-twitch flex response that gives the surfer the feedback and return desired.
LFT at last brings the perfect blend of a brand-new traditional PU 'board feel' with the added durability of modern sandwich construction.
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.

She is catching waves on her own...! Honestly
Christoph (reviewed 13/11/2018)
Catched so many waves in Portugal this year, and is still good to surf in headhigh up to doubleheadhigh conditions. A lot of fun in smaller conditions and the MR 2+1 fins.
This was my third board sent to Austria and it will not be the last one!!
Stephen Clague (reviewed 02/11/2018)
Getting a new board can always comes with apprehension but after the first wave I knew I’d made the right choice.
It’s already my favourite board!
Thanks to Matt at the Boardshop team for his knowledgeable advice . A fantastic service from a great team .
Received 2 days after purchasing and that’s with living on the Isle if Man.
I can’t recommend the board and Boardshop enough .
