2015 Firewire Surfboards
DOMINATOR 

 

 

Designed by Dan Mann, and perhaps the most versatile board in the Firewire quiver to date, the DOMINATOR combines a full outline with a thick foil from nose to tail and a 5/4/3 fin configuration. Dan moved the wide point back to reduce the nose profile, maintaining all of the speed but with none of the top turn drawbacks of retro nose outlines. Built with the flex characteristics and lightweight of FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY, the DOMINATOR paddles like it's turbo charged and does not track like heavier PU boards with similar dimensions. Take Charge!

BAKED POTATO

 

 

 Dan Mann has struck gold again, Yukon Gold. The BAKED POTATO offers the same small wave performance as the SWEET POTATO with a few subtle design adjustments. The nose is pulled in slightly and some of the rail volume has been removed to allow for even faster rail to rail transfers. The BAKED POTATO has the same aggressive double concaves and 'V-spline' running down the center of the board which allows the board to get up on the rail much faster than the overall design would indicate. Primarily designed for smaller, weaker conditions, the BAKED POTATO will surprise you by its performance characteristics, and how the quad fins set further back and closer to the rail than usual, allow the board to hold with- out sliding, even in larger surf. Get cooking on a BAKED POTATO.

 PYZALIEN

 Jon Pyzel's PyzAlien is a great all- around performance board, designed to keep speed and flow in weaker conditions, while feeling lively and loose in all types of waves. The fuller outline, wider tail and slightly wider, flatter nose help to produce speed and drive, and make it a fast, easy paddler.

It has a lot of curve through the tail rocker, and that, combined with the bottoms contours of single/double concave running into a nice bit of VEE off the tail keep snappy yet controlled when you tip it onto the rail. A great board for a wide range of waves and conditions, the PyzAlien feels just as good in waist-high slop as it does in overhead juice and will help you get the most out of your everyday sessions.

For more advanced surfers we recommend you ride this board around your height or 1¹" below.

# HASHTAG
Come springtime, every designer’s phone starts to ring. The calls come in hot from pros looking to incorporate the best parts of their winter quivers into a board that specializes in smashing lazier waves. This year was no different and when Nev Hyman got the calls, the HASHTAG was the result. Starting with a bit of Hellrazor DNA, Nev added volume and reduced the tail rocker giving the board more drive and squirt when the waves lose a bit of steam. The stepped round tail keeps the board feeling buttery when linking maneuvers and maximizes bite to allow for a vertical attack when desired. The HASHTAG has modest entry rocker and a mellow double concave starting near the middle of the board that deepens as it travels through the fins. This makes it super lively when surfed on rail and gives experienced surfers the tools to be aggressive in the pocket.

MAYHEM MINI DRIVER
The Mini Driver started with the original Driver. The initial adjustments incorporated a fast, low nose rocker with a forward placed outline, both of which added drive. After adding a rounded tail for control, but with additional width at 12" up from the tail, the Mini Driver emerged. The clean and elliptical outline moved freely on the face and inside the tube, which is true to Kolohe's challenge when we started on the design. We were soon surprised by how well it performed in smaller everyday surf. The Mini Driver has quickly been recognized as one of the most versatile designs we’ve ever done.

MAYHEM V2 ROCKET
From ...Lost Surfboards head shaper Matt 'Mayhem' Biolos: 

"The V2 ROCKET has a bit less tail rocker, with less concave through the fins which creates a faster rail line under foot. I actually deepened the concave out of the tail as well. The soft wing helps retain the quick redirection off the top and lends more control in the bowl. The nose rocker is bent up more in the first 12” and the concave is brought further forward. Overall an easier board to ride for an average surfer in sub-par waves. it has more down the line drive and a bit less skateboard kick tail feel.”

VANGUARD

The Vanguard: Modern Planing Hull represents a radical change in the approach to high performance surfboard design and the Vanguard model is the result of precise mathematical formulas and geometry. The hydrodynamic architecture of the Vanguard opens the door to a fresh approach to surfboard design and the art of riding waves. Inspired by the incredible feats of athleticism exhibited by today’s top professional surfers, Tomo (Daniel Thomson) has created a design that further helps 21st century surfers expand their abilities.

 

Higher degrees of speed, electric wave attack and radical aerial potential are all possible with this highly tuned machine. Template: The outline of the Vanguard is the foundation and driving force of this highly innovative surfboard. Ultra parallel lines allow the design to be ridden smaller and narrower than previously considered functional. This is achieved by maintaining ideal rider volume with balanced foam distribution. The parallel outline reduces drag, thus increasing dynamic planing lift yielding more speed via less water resistance.

 

Nose Profile: The unique diamond nose profile significantly reduces swing weight while still providing a central control point. Further, the diamond nose is blunt and safe. The rider is encouraged to push the limits of personal performance and have fun. The nose area features a complex contour to reduce the rate of pearling by creating controlled aerodynamic lift. As the rider gains speed he/she will notice the nose contour channeling wind resistance, which in turn, lifts the nose upward. This feature is also very beneficial to a surfer with a developed aerial repertoire. When engaged in on-wave manoeuvres, the instant the nose engages the water, the nose contour helps ‘pop’ the nose out of a pearl. This adds a tremendous element of control when riding backward out of radical manoeuvre.

 

Tail Profile: The unique twin diamond tail profile provides excellent directional control and very low drag. The technical bottom contour, which utilises a channel/concave combo, helps to maximise speed and control through sharp directional changes.

 

The Ride: The rider will experience exceptional freedom and planing speed right from the get go. The very short nature of the design allows the rider to completely dominate the board. The straightened rail line will allow for effortless and precise turns and direct transitions.

 

Although geared for high performances shredding, the Vanguard is surprisingly easy to ride for a wide range of surfing abilities. It has a very stable nature, naturally fast with and a very efficient wave catching ability.
