Product Details

The Firewire Timbertek Greedy Beaver surfboard. The Greedy Beaver looks like a longboard, has all the benefits that a longboard brings but it’s a shortboard in spirit. It’s got the wave catching ability and the glide of a log but has the manoeuvrability you associate with a shortboard. You can put it on a rail and surf it off the tail and it comes to life like you can't believe, tight turns and pocket surfing are a reality on a board which looks like a longboard. All this is possible through the thinned out dropped rails and the single to double concave. The reduced volume in the rail allows you to start your turns more easily than you'd expect and the single to double concave gives the board lift which maintains the speed through fatter or flatter sections of the wave. Guaranteed fun in waves from knee to head high for all levels of surfer. Sizing is straight forward, if you're nearer to the beginner end of the scale, if you're coming off a minimal then go bigger. If you're 70kgs and a progressing beginner it’s the 6 2 or 6 4, if you’re a decent intermediate it’s the 5 10 or 6 0 and if you're a ripper go as short as you like.

Timbertek construction is the combination of a lightweight EPS core, and 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 reducing the boards carbon footprint. TIMBERTEK, it's simply High Performance Art!

A*** service and knowledge!
Had a good exchange of emails with roger to begin with, making sure that the board was the right one for me and giving honest advice. It never felt like they were just trying to sell me any board, instead they seemed really genuine in finding the right board for me! Also went out of their way when the board was out of stock to get me the board ASAP and before anyone else could snap it up! Will order all my surf gear from these guys from now on. A surf shop run by surfers for surfers and it really makes a difference! Cheers guys.
Nice people
Very good board
Can't wait to try it
Great service from the Boardshop guys. Very carrying, helpful and swift on their response. Regarding the board i did not have the chance to try it out, but arrived quick (3 days to Denamrk) and in perfect condition and very well conditioned.
Great board!
Just surfed the board in autumn in France with powerful waves and it was a dream. 10ft 16seconds: great control also at high speed bottom turns. When the waves got smaller it surfed so smooth and fast through flatter sections. I thought I was 10 kgs lighter.
I am 67kg and my choice was a 6.0. It is the first time I surfed quads. I wished I had this boards already years ago.
Thanks also for the fast delivery.

Beautiful board, can't wait to try it :)
Sorry haven't had a chance to try it yet :(
* Very happy with effort made with shipping to Switzerland...

Great advice, quick service, awesome board.
Great service from the Boardshop guys. Quick response to questions and sound advice. Board (6'6" Greedy Beaver) arrived quick and in perfect condition. So far the board has lived up to expectations. I wanted a loose a few litres after riding a 6'10" Addvance for a while (I'm 6'4"/100kgs) and this board has really opened things up for me. You can trim it like a longboard in smaller stuff, but step on the tail and it really comes alive on steeper sections. I could have maybe gone smaller, but will probably need to wait for autumn swells to answer that question.
The Greedy Beaver is very greedy indeed....
So just back from a trip on an island in the Atlantic with 5 guys and just as many new surfboards. After 10 years we all decided it was time to invest in new boards. We had with us a 611 Sci Fi, a 5'11 Omni, a 6'4 Greedy Beaver, a 5'10 Almond Butter and a 7'6 Seaxe. We surfed punchy hollow beach breaks, gentle take off beach breaks with fast inside sections, long left pointbreaks with diverse sections and mushy conditions. We passed the boards around so everyone could get a feeling for them despite being of very different heights, weights and athletic fitness.

The Greedy Beaver is absolutely brilliant. I've always loved renting longboards for the smaller days or the slower waves but never wanted to travel with one. I missed so many nice clean but small or mushy sessions because I had the wrong board. The Greedy Beaver is the perfect compromise. It takes off on anything, glidese through the mushy sections and you can actually pump your way through the fast inside sections and attack the lip. It is so easy and fun to ride its ridiculous. I now have a portable longboard and a quiver that enables me to surf everyday whatever the conditions without getting frustrated. My buddies who were surfing their shortboards in these conditions were going crazy while we were catching 200m - 300m waves to the beach.

I could never travel without this board again, it should be a staple to any quiver. One thing we did note is that the new FCS2 system is absolutely brilliant (I couldn't figure out at first why I had no screws in my fin plugs...), just clip in your fins.

Ian's advice on size and volume was perfect despite my endless doubts and questions. Service at boardshop is really perfect. With the Greedy at 6'4 I was a little worried it would be too big but it's so maneuverable I could nearly go longer. With my 83kg had no problem even on waist high mushy waves.
the Long and Short of it
basically does what it says on the tin. First try out in knee to shoulder waves I caught pretty much every wave I went for - way easier to catch waves than my old minimal. Then you stand up and you hoon one way or the other until you dial in the fact that it's a short board and way more reactive. And I managed my first duck dive. Glowing after several celebratory ales. I am 175lbs and 6"2"and on the most excellent advice of Roger went for the 6'6". Service from Boardshop generally outstanding. Thanks guys!
I'm super happy with the greedy beaver!
Hi Ian,

Just wanted to drop you a mail to say I'm super happy with the greedy beaver! I've had it out for a couple of surfs and I can tell it's going to really help me improve my surfing. Your advice on sizing was spot on, thank you for all your help. I was a bit dubious about buying a board online and 'un-seen' but you made the process very smooth and easy. I'll be back again I'm sure!

Happy new year,

thank you for your help and advice
I received the greedy beaver from you guys couple days back, including the future fin recommendation you gave. I just wanted to thank you for your help and advice. In the hands it certainly 'feels' like it's spot on and looks like it will surf great, so very very pleased.
This is it!
This is exactly what I have been looking for for many years. The board paddles well, is stable at take off, lively on the face, glides over flat spots and grovels and trims on barely breaking waves if you need that. It sits well in the water offering a solid platform under your chest when paddling, then under your feet once up and riding, with a superb pin tail / rail/ bottom contours combo that provide fast, smooth and easy rail turns. The tail sinks and holds in in just the right way. Since the tail volume blends so well with the rail etc. it does not keep wanting to pop out or cause a tracking feeling as I have experienced on some similar types of boards. I am riding this as a thruster at the moment which gives me a familiar feel and drive but can try a quad set up or various combinations utilising the five fin slots. Yet to try in overhead more solid waves but have confidence it will work well . I haven't been so excited about a board for a long time and feel this has not only renewed enthusiasm but given me the same feeling of innovation as riding a short board for the first time .
amazing wave catcher
i've purcheased a 6'8 board cause mediterranean wave in italy are most of the time small,and big swell comes fiwe times,and you need a versatile surfboard like this amazing wave catcher machine,i've used on wave from 2ft to 5ft and the aggressive shortboard outline combined whit longboard style give you chance to surf small wave easily from the paddle to the take off,and when waves are big and full of power the pin tail give a great manovrability in quad configuration.one of the best surfboard i've bought (i've one tiber 6ft baked potatoes and it's fun but the line and the concept when you r on the board is veryvery different)greedy is a bomb,a wave rogue,you can steal wave paddleling next to longboarders and attak the wave like a shortboarder!i think i'm in love!
Greedy she is. The usual FW rocker that wants to go, nice and stable underfoot too. Very responsive down the line for a board of this shape - driving for speed was not an issue, I was surprised at how easy it was to go top to bottom . I can't fault it. For capable surfers go for a volume just above your SB, Once you get used to the nose, you forget it's there at all. It has a nice spread on the foam so you don't get that corky feel under the front foot. I'll buy my next one shorter for better waves and keep the 6'0 for summer. Best board I've surfed in a long time.
Fantastic, easy paddling and turns
Stepping down from a 7'2 mini mal to the 6'6 Greedy Beaver has been fantastic. I've only been surfing for about 6 months but so glad I've gone shorter. The Greedy Beaver paddles better than the mal 8 inches longer and turns so easily. Love the rocker in the nose, makes getting into steeper waves easy. When you step on the tail you get a great squirty, fun turn or you can lean on the rail and carve. This weekends' south swell was pretty solid and the board even managed a few cheeky cover ups.
