Product Details

The Firewire Rapidfire Activator surfboard would be best described as the Dominator Mk 2, built on the same solid platform but with the addition of a double-wing swallow tail shape. This tail design takes some of the bulk out of the Dominators 'fat thumb' tail allowing the board to release and turn even sharper, and includes the ‘pivot-point’ of the swallow tail design which many surfers love. The Activator is the perfect board for the surfer looking for a little more performance than the DM, but with all of the wave-catching ability of the original design, the Activator will add some explosive performance to your ‘in the pocket’ surfing while still sailing over flat spots and mush!

Rapidfire is a hybrid technology, combining the carbon rod suspension of DirectDrive with a bamboo top deck skin.

Rapidfire's core is shaped from 2lb fused EPS foam and the Bamboo skin is applied using Firewire's proven sandwich construction. Unlike FST and DD, the 2lb foam and bamboo deck do not require a vent.

The interior carbon rods work with the bamboo skin to optimize flex patterns, maximizing speed and drive through turns, and while not as dent resistant as the DD or FST aerospace composite skin, the bamboo dose create significant compression strength.

RF's flex characteristic is similar to FST and the overall effect is a highly tuned, durable surfboard with increased performance and strength versus traditional surfboard construction.

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.

This manufacturing process has created a range of lightweight and durable custom boards that are quickly being recognised for their awesome performance.

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!

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.
