The Firewire White Rapidfire Hellfire is a 'contemporary Hybrid', taking the best characteristics of the Dominator and Spitfire, maintaining bottom curve, thickness distribution and rail volume, but adding 2" in length with a narrower nose and tail. And deeper double concaves for extra lift and drive at speed. The result is a more standard short board look and feel. The Hellfire has more of the on-rail; in the pocket drivey feel that you trust in your "normal" short board. Suggested lengths are 2" to 4" shorter than your regular short board, or 2" to 4" longer than your hybrid. White Rapidfire is a product of continued R and D, the White Rapidfire construction substitutes a PVC free and VOC free composite top deckskin for the original bamboo inlay. This composite maintains the overall flex and durability of the board giving it the same great and distinctive Rapidfire ride with a fresh new appearance. 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! Thanks to 10 years of research and the expertise of shapers Nev Hyman and Dan Mann the future of surfing is changing!
