Firewire Timbertek Vacay surfboard 7ft 2 FCS II - Natural Wood
The Vacay is an awesome board with a forgiving nature for the entry level surfer and still plenty of dialled in performance for the seasoned rider looking for some summer glide and the odd turn when a section presents.
The Vacay will glide across mushy sections with a nice predictable and stable feel and it is more than capable of surfing the pocket particularly for surfers with a wide, evenly weighted stance who are less inclined to drive with the back foot (great for the beginner/intermediate!).
The Timbertek Vacay has borrowed many of the Greedy Beaver's characteristics but has a totally revamped rear third. The most obvious change is the squash tail instead of the GB's rounded pintail. This change to the tail gives the Vacay more lift and wave catching ability and definitely a more familiar shortboard feel when initiating turns. The aqua dynamics have been tweaked with a single concave that divides nearer the tail, perfect for pumping and generating speed and a much looser feel than the Greedy Beaver. Faster and much smoother onto a rail than its predecessor, the Vacay can perform proper carves not usually possible on these fun-shapes with squash tails.
The Boardshop team are very excited about the Vacay, in fact we can see it being one of our best sellers in this sector. This new mid-length has a truly broad appeal; it doesn't matter if you're looking for your first "proper" surfboard, you're an established surfer looking for an easy riding funboard for less than perfect summer conditions or a longboarder who needs a shorter and more manageable surfboard for international travel.
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 surfboard which looks stunning but more importantly delivers all of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire’s existing technologies.
