About the Firewire Seaside Surfboard: The idea behind the Seaside Quad Fish from Firewire Surfboards is "evolving the Go Fish to something new, really. The Go Fish goes fast and feels skatey and loose and I love it, and riding it for a couple years made me want to feel more high performance - more carves, tighter turns. So the Seaside is about refining… less area in the tail, narrowing the tips of the swallow, creating more curve and narrowing the nose. All elements for ripping while the Go Fish stays cruisey and fun."
About Firewire Helium Technology:HELIUM builds on the FST technology platform and takes it to the next level. After years of scouring the composites world (and countless dead-ends along the way) we've finally managed to develop an alternative sandwich skin material to the existing FST build. HELIUM combines this new composite with a redesigned parabolic wood rail that includes both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is that HELIUM is even lighter than FST, a slightly faster flex and rebound characteristic, as well as a higher breakpoint. This represents an almost impossible combination of improvements over FST, as in most cases, a significant weight reduction over an already light technology (FST) leads to a lower break point. In addition, the new deck skin material creates shallow foot-wells which enhance your connection to your board. We have also decided to buck the current aesthetic trend of new technologies. We believe that HELIUM will remain at the pinnacle of surfboard technology for many years to come, and therefore, we decided to go with a minimalist aesthetic that is both immediately recognizable and that will stand the test of time.
