The Firewire Hell Razor is the ultimate high performance Hybrid replacing your normal short board (should be riden approx 1" shorter). The Hell Razor can trace it's DNA back to the Hellfire which in turn came from the legendary Spitfire, so it still has all the high performance characteristics of those models. Firewire have flattened the double concaves slightly compared to the Hellfire, and the overall foil has been even more refined, with a slightly narrower nose and tail, but with plenty of width to make sure you don't get bogged down on those flatter sections. We all know it's virtually impossible to design and build single board that can handle and perform on every type of wave between waist and head high, the Hell Razor comes 'razor' close. Put it through its paces and raise hell! Rapidfire is a hybrid technology, combining the carbon rod suspension of DirectDrive with a bamboo top deck skin. Rapidfire's core is shaped from 2lb fused EPS foam and the Bamboo skin is applied using Firewire's proven sandwich construction. The interior carbon rods work with the bamboo skin to optimize flex patterns, maximizing speed and drive through turns, and while not as dent resistant as the DD or FST aerospace composite skin, the bamboo dose create significant compression strength. RF's flex characteristic is similar to FST and the overall effect is a highly tuned, durable surfboard with increased performance and strength versus traditional surfboard construction. RF retails in line with premium PU surfboards. Rapidfire integrates EXO CARBON technology into the existing design to boost performance levels even higher. The EXO CARBON technology developed by SSS (Surfboard Suspension Systems) is unique to Firewire, the skeletal carbon frame they have developed is engineered around and inside the Firewire's blank. This carbon exo skeleton basically controls and improves the rate and degree of flex and the flex memory. What this means for you and me is heightened responsiveness and a very lively ride. As with the standard parabolic boards the dimensions, foils and rail configurations are all geared towards maximum speed and the tightest turning radius possible. 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! Thanks to 10 years of research and the expertise of shapers Nev Hyman and Dan Mann the future of surfing is changing!
