Product Details

The Firewire Timbertek Sweet Potato Kiteboard. This is the board that we'd rather keep a secret; that magic board that'll put your wave count through the roof even on those small and junky days. The 'buzz' surrounding this funky little board has been unprecedented, at last a board designed to rip in the smallest conditions when normally you'd head home, mow the lawn and leave it to the longboards!

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. Firewire’s signature parabolic rail construction along with an Entropy bio-resin hot coat delivers an extremely lightweight and durable surfboards which not only looks stunning but still delivers all of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire’s existing technologies.

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 info@boardshop.co.uk or call us on 0044 (0) 1243 674250.

Bought as a beginner board to use in small surf
Bought as a beginner board to use in small surf after 22yrs bodyboarding. Much more fun option than buying a big mal.Can't comment from an experienced surfers perspective but if you want a board to learn on that has got more life in it than a foamie or mal then I would strongly reccomend.They seem to hold their value so will probably trade in for a shorter SP in the future.
