Firewire and Arbor are proud to announce that their collaborative surfboard offerings have now arrived in stores. The designs combine Firewire’s use of epoxy resins and EPS foam materials, which are less harmful to the environment, and Arbor’s signature, sustainably sourced, structural wood power-ply technology.
ABOUT FIREWIRE: Firewire was founded in early 2006 and while a relative new comer to the surfboard industry, the company has made its mark through the use of innovative materials and the introduction of flex to increase performance. Firewire believes that refinements to the shape of today’s modern surfboard can only produce incremental performance benefits, and that exponential improvements in performance can only be achieved through new materials and construction methods which, in turn, will open up new design opportunities. Ridden exclusively by Taj Burrow, a top five finisher on the ASP Word Tour for the past four years and the recent winner of the 2009 Pipeline Masters, Firewire surfboard’s high performance has been proven under the most demanding conditions.
