The Sweet Potato dramatically changes the ratio between the length and width of a board while still allowing the design to perform at a very high level.
Designer Dan Mann explains, "The aggressive bottom contour creates considerable lift and the deep double concave with a 'spine' down the middle divide the board in half isolating the fins, rocker and bottom on one side of the board at a time. This allows the board to get on a rail quickly. The Sweet Potato is the board you should always bring on a surf check, and you'll find yourself ripping on small days where you'd otherwise go home".
- (TimberTek) - The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown Paulownia wood deck skins, Firewire’s proprietary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat yield an extremely lightweight, durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire’s existing technologies.
- (Linear Flex Technology) Bamboo Deckskin - This option incorporates a bamboo deckskin as well as the Firewire’s 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. The SPRINGER HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail.
