The Firewire Activator would be best described as the Dominator Mk 2, built on the same solid platform but with the addition of a double-wing swallow tail shape. This tail design takes some of the bulk out of the Dominators 'fat thumb' tail allowing the board to release and turn even sharper, and includes the 'pivot-point' of the swallow tail design which many surfers love. The Activator is the perfect board for the surfer looking for a little more performance than the DM, but with all of the wave-catching ability of the original design, the Activator will add some explosive performance to your 'in the pocket' surfing while still sailing over flat spots and mush! The rapid response flex memory in the Future Shapes Technology used in these boards yields great speed through the turns whilst the parabolic rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years. Firewire surfboards feature some very distinct construction traits that set them aside form other boards currently available: 1) parabolic balsa rails 2) dual density EPS and advanced composite core The parabolic balsa rails flex at the start of a turn storing energy and rebound through the turn releasing built up energy in the form of speed. The spring back of the parabolic rails to the original rocker triggers rapid acceleration, like an arrow shot from a bow. The construction materials, a unique formulation of hi-tech epoxy resins and advanced composites mean that these boards maintain the lively feel you get with brand new polyurethane boards, but are up to 20% lighter and will last 5+ times longer. This manufacturing process has won environmental awards and has created a range of lightweight and durable custom boards that are quickly being recognised for their awesome performance, just ask Taj Burrow! What this all means for surfers is a step forward in the age old trade off of performance versus durability that has traditionally limited polyurethane boards. The nature of the core technology in these boards allows them to rebound in and out of turns with little loss of speed. The secret to improved surfing is maintaining and using this speed to go higher, bigger, longer or whatever does it for you! Firewire also won the SURFBOARD OF THE YEAR award at the recent SIMA awards - that's basically the surf industry deciding who has done the best job, and is an extremely prestigious award. Thanks to 10 years of research and the expertise of shapers Nev Hyman and Dan Mann the future of surfing is changing, these guys are calling this Future Shapes Technology, we like it!
