Firewire LFT Vacay surfboard 7ft 2 Futures - White
The Vacay is an awesome board with a forgiving nature for the entry level surfer and still plenty of dialled in performance for the seasoned rider looking for some summer glide and the odd turn when a section presents.
The Vacay will glide across mushy sections with a nice predictable and stable feel and it is more than capable of surfing the pocket particularly for surfers with a wide, evenly weighted stance who are less inclined to drive with the back foot (great for the beginner/intermediate!).
The Vacay has borrowed many of the Greedy Beaver's characteristics but has a totally revamped rear third. The most obvious change is the squash tail instead of the GB's rounded pintail. This change to the tail gives the Vacay more lift and wave catching ability and definitely a more familiar shortboard feel when initiating turns. The aqua dynamics have been tweaked with a single concave that divides nearer the tail, perfect for pumping and generating speed and a much looser feel than the Greedy Beaver. Faster and much smoother onto a rail than its predecessor, the Vacay can perform proper carves not usually possible on these fun-shapes with squash tails.
The Boardshop team are very excited about the Vacay, in fact we can see it being one of our best sellers in this sector. This new mid-length has a truly broad appeal; it doesn't matter if you're looking for your first "proper" surfboard, you're an established surfer looking for an easy riding funboard for less than perfect summer conditions or a longboarder who needs a shorter and more manageable surfboard for international travel.
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.
