Firewire Rapidfire Flexfire surfboard 6ft 2 FCS - Natural Wood
Rapidfire's core is shaped from 2lb fused EPS foam and the Bamboo skin is applied using Firewire's proven sandwich construction.
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 FST construction, the bamboo does 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. RF retails in line with premium PU surfboards.
The Rapidfire Flexfire Round tail board integrates EXO CARBON technology into the existing design to boost performance levels even higher. The EXO CARBON technology developed by SSS (Surfboard Suspension Systems) is unique to Firewire, the skeletal frame they have developed is engineered around and inside the Firewire's blank. This carbon exo skeleton basically controls and improves the rate and degree of flex and the flex memory. What this means for you and me is heightened responsiveness and a very lively ride. 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.
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!
