2017 Firewire Quiver For Hire – Updated August 2017

Unibrow

Unibrow

Dimensions: 6’6  X 20 1/2  X 2 7/8
Liters: 40.4 L

Designer Dan Mann explains, “The UNIBROW has roots in a design I’ve been riding as my regular short board, mixed with what I’ve learned from designing and riding the Dominator, Sweet Potato and Potato-Nator. The outline curve is compressed from a regular shortboard without sacrificing the width needed to maximize paddling and planing speed.

The goal was to design a very high-performance shortboard that didn’t feel too ‘bulky’ in good surf when you can ride something other than a groveler. The rail profile is dropped and very sensitive, especially through the tail. The bottom has an aggressive single concave that start
s in the nose, carries through the deep spot forward of the fins and splits into a subtle double concave that then directs the water flow to the inside of the front fins”.

Sub Moon Firewire

Sub Moon

Dimensions: 6’8 x 21 x 2 5/8
Liters: 37.4 L
Tail: Moon

The SUBMOON is the ultimate FUNshape. Designer Nev Hyman explains: “We combined a contemporary rocker and concaves and even thickness distribution with a quirky FUNshape outline that encourages a more vertical shortboard approach to the traditional longboard style of surfing. The outline has generous curve between your feet, which encourages the board to get on rail and TURN! The narrower moon tail provides bite, drive and direction, and the snub nose carries area forward for a bit of tip hang-cheater five FUN.”

Profile V1 Firewire

PROFILE V1
Dimensions: 6’4  x  18 1/2  x  2 9/16
Liters: 31.8L

The PRO_File v1.0 was developed incorporating feedback from our top team riders to create the highest performance design in our range. The outline features continuous curve from nose to tail and with accentuated tail rocker added for extreme turns in the most critical part of the wave

Evo Tomo

EVO

Dimensions: 5’6  x  19 3/4  x  2 9/16
Litres: 32.2L Tomo Model

Dimensions: 5’7  x  20  x  2 5/
Litres: 33.9L Tomo Model

EVO (Evolution) is a new take on the MPH design,utilizing softer features and more outline curve to encourage a smoother transitions and a more ‘in the pocket’ line of attack. A wider central wide point comparative to the Vader, the EVO should be considered favorable to smaller weaker waves, however like most Tomo MPH Designs , the EVO will still be quite functional in overhead waves conditions.

Maintaining an almost symmetrical outline and a completely unique and highly innovative “Double inside single concave into split quad concave” planing hull, The EVO feels as if it’s almost ‘levitating’ on the water! Yet once on rail, it has a precise rail sensitivity and hold. The EVO should be ridden as short as possible with user friendly volumes packed into the shortest MPH sizings yet offered by Tomo.

Rental Rates
Full Day: AUD $25 (or Rp.250.000 at resort)
Per Session: AUD $10 (or Rp.100.000 at resort)

Amigo

The Amigo

Dimensions: 6’0 x 19 5/8 x 2 1/2
Liters: 30.4L

The heart of the Amigo is a very fast, very user-friendly rocker that not only gains speed easily, but also has a loose, snappy feel in all kinds of waves. The outline is full with a nice hip leading into a wide tail block, which adds to the speed but lets it break free where you want it to. The bottom has single concave running all the way through, with just a touch of double concave between the fins. This combo gives lift to get the board planing on top of the water easily and helps maintain speed through flatter, weaker sections.

If you love riding a stubbie, but you crave a more high performance feeling, the Amigo is going to be the board for you.

Sci fi Firewire Surfboard

Sci Fi

Dimensions: 5’9″ x 19′ 1/4″ x 2′ 1/2″
Liters: 29.2L

The Sci-Fi is a mash up of classic curves and modern rocker served with a Futuristic twist of fluid
dynamic principles likely found in the design archives of Bruce Wayne.

Expect seemingly unnatural acceleration, instantaneous response and an all around level performance that can only be described as Electric.

The Sci-Fi is a high performance all-rounder with impressive range (1-8ft ) with usability for intermediate to advanced surfers. 5-fin Option.

Full Day: AUD $25
Per Session: AUD $10

Slab Firewire surfboard
Slab

Dimensions: 6’1 x 19 1/8 x 2 7/16
Liters: 30.1L

The Slab by Pyzel is John John Florence’s ideas refined into his perfect free surfing model. John John wanted 3 inches off the nose of the JP-X and an increased tail rocker. This resulted in a fuller nose, fatter top section and an extremely high performance fun board that goes well in a range of conditions.

The lower nose rocker gives the Pyzel Slab heaps of speed early in the take off and when driving down the line. An easy nose rocker and extra tail rocker makes the board speedy but provides the ability to easily release it in the pocket for high performance surfing

v4 Tomo Hire Mentawai

V4: (Tomo Model)

Dimensions: 5’8 x 18 1/4 x 2 1/4
Liters: 25.8L

Incorporating Tomo’s Modern Planing Hull (MPH), the V4 was born through Daniel’s ongoing quest to gain more speed and stability in the modern short board without compromising responsiveness and directional control. The V4 maintains a considerably narrow, forward of center wide-point and straightened rail line to emphasize the classic ‘Tomo post-modern Hydrofoil curve’, and includes a 5/4/3 fin option.

In a variation of the Vanguard’s hull, the V-4’s bottom contours feature a double barrel concave through the center of the tail forlift and speed and small side bite channels were added off the rail for precise bite and control during turns.

The V4’s clean outline, bottom contours and foil will provide excellent speed and lift in small surf yet will have incredible hold and control when the surf is overhead.

Sweet Potato
Sweet Potato

Dimension: 5’4 – 21 1/2 – 2 1/2
Liters: 35.7
Tail: Round

The Sweet Potato dramatically changes the ratio between the length and width of a board while still allowing the design to perform at a very high level.

Designer Dan Mann explains, “The aggressive bottom contour creates considerable lift and the deep double concave with a ‘spine’ down the middle divides the board in half isolating the fins, rocker and bottom on one side of the board at a time. This allows the board to get on a rail quickly. The Sweet Potato is the board you should always bring on a surf check, and you’ll find yourself ripping on small days where you’d otherwise go home”

Banana

Dimensions: 5’11 x 18 3/4 x 2 5/16
Liters: 27.3L

Dimensions: 6’0 x 19 x 2 3/8
Liters: 28.8L

Inspired by the extreme rocker boards that Greg Webber and Shane Herring developed in the early 90’s, the BANANA is a far more user-friendly version that Kelly and Greg developed for intermediate to advanced surfers. And meant to be ridden in better than average conditions.

The BANANA has a smooth outline curve from nose to tail, a slight bump wing in front of the fins, as well as a generous single concave bottom contour. The end result is an extremely high performance surfboard that can be pushed hard through turns, while holding it’s own in deep barrels. In other words, the carving rail turns and extreme tube riding that Kelly was doing at Pipe on the smaller days during the 2015 Masters.

Creeper

Dimensions: 5’6  X  19 1/2  X 2  3/8
Liters: 28.5L

Shaped by the style master himself. Rob Machado has created a low entry rocker, 70’s inspired board coupled with a curvy fuller outline in the tail to allow quick direction changes yet still provide effortless gliding. Whether you are driving off the bottom or setting some serious high lines, you’ll be sure to do so with Rob’s nonchalant style.

Liters: 26.8L

Dimensions: 5′ 10″ x 20″ x 2 5/8″
Liters: 35.3L

Designed by pro surfer and ocean advocate Rob Machado, the Almond Butter surfboard just says FUN all over it. Rob has always been known as one to carve his own path in the surf world, which his designs express. The board is versatile enough to surf in small waves on up to overhead hollow conditions. The classic short board design with Rob’s own special sauce makes this a fun board for any surfer. With a 5-fin setup the possibilities are endless.

Round Nose Fish Firewire surfboard

Round Nose Fish

The Round Nose Fish since it’s first release has been the world’s all-time best selling fish model – and it is now available in Firewire’s super robust Timbertek technology. This design still screams HiFi fun- it can be ridden in a wide range conditions, paddles well and will add that bit of spice to your surfing in marginal conditions.

It features a low rocker nose to tail with a central concave for lift & liveliness. This concave then blends into a spiral vee through the tail. A board that is fast and loose, but with enough tidiness through the tail to keep you in control (& not wildly sliding out all over the place like you may feel on other fishes). Traditionally set up with larger side fins and a smaller trailer, this version of the Round Nose Fish comes with 5 fin plugs to give you the option of playing around with a multitude of fin set ups.

Full Day: AUD $25
Per Session: AUD $10
