30 Day Ride Out Guarantee With this Surfboard - Don’t like it? swap it
Firewire Timbertek Baked Potato Surfboard 5ft 5 FCS II - Natural Wood
Primarily designed for smaller, weaker conditions, the BP will surprise you by its performance characteristics, and how the quad fins set further back and closer to the rail than usual, allow the board to hold with- out sliding, even in larger surf.
TIMBERTEK represents a huge step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today's environmentally conscious world. While by no means 'carbon neutral' or sustainably built, Firewire's TIMBERTEK has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially produced surfboards today.
Grant Newby, a talented Ozzy craftsman first turned us on to the potential of this construction, and following his lead, our Firewire R&D and production team worked tirelessly to make this tech a reality in a production setting. Building one-offs or small quantities is one thing (and not to be discounted), but it took a huge effort to overcome all the technical problems that became apparent as we tweaked the original recipe to increase performance and build reasonable quantities. Of course having our own vertical factory was a huge help.
The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown timber deck skins, Firewire's legendary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat give an extremely lightweight and durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex traits of Firewire's existing technologies. Even more impressive,this tech has lead to a significant reduction in exterior lamination significantly further educing the boards carbon footprint. TIMBERTEK, it's simply High Performance Art!
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 email@example.com or call us on 0044 (0) 1243 674250.

Valentin (reviewed 19/09/2017)
My board is 5'5, my weight is 68 kilo's. Should take a smaller board for places with ocean swell, but for a Baltic Sea with really weak waves - I'm really happy with the result.
Lex (reviewed 29/07/2017)
Delivery to the Netherlands in 4 days, so I didn't have to wait long to catch waves.
Thanks for the advice boardshop! Very happy with the board!

Love it so far but need more time on it to get settled.
Must just say the customer service from Roger and the team has been brilliant.
Tom S (reviewed 29/02/2016)
I decided to buy from Boardshop.com because of their 30 day rideout promise, in case I had got the wrong volume or board (was either this or a Lost puddle jumper). I needn't have worried. The board was spot on - but nice to have that option just in case. I also got a great price on it through a price match, and will definitely be using boardshop to grow the collection.
