Firewire Timbertek Sweet Potato Kiteboard 5ft 2 Futures - Natural Wood
The Sweet Potato has certainly lived up to it's billing and has set the bar pretty damn high for all boards in the "groveller" category. The SP is still THE go-to board when the surf is from knee to chest high.
“Clearly the Sweet Potato is not your average surfboard." says designer Dan Mann, “The outline is the most striking design change from the status quo. The SP dramatically changes the ratio between the length and width of a board while still allowing the design to perform at a very high level. While the relationship of the outline and volume obviously have a big impact, without the big changes in the rocker, bottom contour, fin placement, and the flex characteristics of the stronger and lighter materials, the Sweet Potato would have limited performance as has been the case with these designs in the past”.
Another of the noticeable design attributes Dan added is the aggressive bottom contour which creates considerable lift. The deep double concave with a 'spine' in the middle divide the board in half (length-wise) isolating the fins, rocker and bottom on one side of the board at a time. This allows the board to get on a rail quickly.
The Sweet Potato is the board you always take on a surf check; the board that lives in the car just in case!
Firewire's Timbertek construction is a combination of a lightweight EPS core with sustainably-grown Paulownia wood deck skins.
