Firewire Spitfire Surfboard - Future Shapes Technology (FST) - 5'8"
Firewire Spitfire Surfboard - Future Shapes Technology (FST) - 5'6"
The Firewire Marketing Director, Chuy Reyna, was looking for all the benefits of the Dominator but even more performance. The SPITFIRE combines a diamond tail and STEP-DOWN tail rail, giving the SPITFIRE the tail bite of a much thinner board, without losing the Dominator's speed and flotation.åÊ
The Spitfire still has the fuller foil, increased flotation, low rocker, and wider nose of the Dominator. These features give it excellent paddling speed so you can zoom around the lineup, get into position easily, and catch waves early. These characteristics are also helpful if you surf "sub optimal" waves. It zooms over flatter sections and can maintain speed even if it gets a little weak. For that added zing the designers added the diamond tail and step-down rails. The diamond tail keeps the rail lines a little straighter allowing them to bite into the wave. These straight lines help to add a little acceleration and let the board start running right out of the gates. To make the board even more responsive thinner `step-down` rails help you sink the rails into the wave, and will give you the feel of riding a thinner board.
The SPITFIRE offers the same 5/4/3 fin options and a low
entry rocker for easy paddling.
Recommended for beginner to advance surfers in knee to slightly overhead waves. Ride this board 6 to 8 inches shorter than your performance shortboard, or the same size as your hybrid (ie: if you ride a 5'8 Dominator ride the Spitfire at 5'8).
