Slater Designs by Firewire Banana Surfboard

Firewire's product development is centered around three things: The exclusive use of epoxy resins and EPS foam cores, developing lighter and stronger surfboards through sandwich construction, and optimizing flex to maximize performance.


Slater Designs Banana Surfboard

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.


Firewire FST

FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than the traditional PU surfboard. The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures boards maintain their lively feel for longer. With a retail price point slightly above premium polyurethane surfboards, FST offers an extremely high performance, durable surfboard.
