Slater Designs by Firewire No Brainer 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.

“The FireWire No Brainer is so easy to surf well, you can shred on it even if you don’t have a brain. The Rocker is a tried and true template I’ve relied on for a long time in grovelers, though I’ve modified it slightly for Kelly, when it comes to the FireWire No Brainer, adding flip in the nose and tail."

"Kelly and I have been going back-and-forth on four or five variations of the No Brainer and we’ve landed on something I think is really magic – the kind of board that an advanced and talented surfer can grovel and shred on, but at the same time, the FireWire No Brainer is something that all other levels of surfer can ride in small to decent sized surf."

"The bottom contour is made up of a subtle belly V in the nose that goes into a moderate single concave under the chest. Within that single concave is a double concave that runs through nearly the entire length of the No Brainer, wven through the fins. But in the last five or so inches of the board it turns into a spiral V, because since I started working with Kelly over the last couple years, I’ve learned that V is something really critical to him in most of his shapes, so the FireWire No Brainer has it.

"I recommend surfing this FireWire Surfboard with your favorite quad set. “


Firewire LFT
Firewire’s product development is focused on three things: The exclusive use of epoxy resins and epoxy resin and EPS foam cores, achieving lighter and stronger surfboards through sandwich construction, and optimizing flex to enhance performance. Though LINEAR FLEX TECHNOLOGY (LFT) may appear to be a simple construction employing familiar design philosophies found in traditionally built surfboards, nothing could be further from the truth. LFT incorporates Firewire’s new SPRINGER HD, a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centerline of the board, representing the next generation in our SPRINGER technology. Unlike the original balsa SPRINGER build which only added stiffness under thefront foot, the SPRINGER HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail. Inserting a high-density material down the center of the board does create engineering hurdles. For example, deck compression over the SPRINGER HD would be less than the surrounding EPS core. Over time, the deck would develop a raised area adjacent to the SPRINGER HD, akin to the ‘ridging' effect on a PU surfboard as the surrounding foam collapses on either side of the stringer. Firewire addressed this issue in two ways. Firstly, the SPRINGER HD stops approximately 10mm below the top deck, ensuring that the surrounding EPS compression will not lead to ‘ridging’. Utilizing our proven sandwich construction methodology, we also added an extremely durable material to the top deck of the board. This ‘deck-skin’ now serves as an additional buffer against the ridging effect while simultaneously working in tandem with the SPRINGER HD to optimize the overall flex pattern of the LFT build. The end result is a durable surfboard with lively flex patterns that will maintain its hi-performance characteristics over time.
