Firewire Timbertek Special T surfboard 8ft 6 Futures - Natural Wood
Dann Mann: "Despite his preference for high performance longboarding, Taylor Jenson (TJ) is an accomplished and stylish noserider, so he wanted his Firewire models to include a board more suited to traditional longboarding. I’ve personally always enjoyed the stylish nature of the 'old school' and in particular, riding an original Phil Edwards belonging to my dad".
Dan continued, "After a heap of input from TJ combined with my own experience, we developed The Special T longboard. The rails have a traditional soft 50/50 template, along with a scoop nose concave and a little extra flip in the tail. We also relaxed the nose entry rocker to enhance nose riding, allowing riders maximum glide and trim with ease."
Firewires TIMBERTEK construction 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!
