Who – The Flat Earth by Firewire is best suited for intermediate to advanced surfers.
When – The Flat Earth by Firewire Surfboards has characteristics that lend itself to conditions anywhere from ankle high to overhead surf. Although it can be surfed in smaller and bigger conditions, the board is best suited for the everyday conditions you would see around your home break in the waist to head high range.
What – The Flat Earth by Firewire is a performance hybrid. With plenty of volume for the length you will be able to ride this board a bit shorter than your regular shortboard. With a single to double concave and plenty of rocker this board will get the performance desired. The single wing round tail allows you to ride it in a wide range of conditions, even in bigger surf. The rail outline template is that of a standard board, then instead of extending it out to a squash/swallow/square tail it's cut shorter, allowing for easier maneuverability. That combined with the round tail (which gives it more hold and control in bigger waves) makes this board perform well in a variety of conditions. The thruster set up will also provide predictability and control in better surf. Designed by Akila Aipa and dialed-in by Kelly Slater, this model is ready to be your go-to board.
