[1] El Fuego / Dimensions: 6’3”x 21” x 2 5/8” (Vol. 39.7) / Shaper: Nev Hyman / The El Fuego combines a thicker foil from nose to tail with the outline of a performance surfboard, complementing the Firewire Dominator. With a wide swallow or diamond tail option and a 5/4/3 fin configuration, the El Fuego offers multiple choices in the pursuit of small-wave fun without sacrificing performance. | [2] Grom Flex / Dimensions: 5’4” x17” 1 7/8” (Vol. 17) / Shaper: Nev Hyman / The Gromflex Series is a morphed down version of our high-performance Flexfire series. The designs feature slightly thicker and wider noses than the Flexfires, combined with a thicker tail area and slightly blockier rails in the tail. Sizes range from 5’2 to 5’10”. / MSRP $499. | [3] Hellfire / Dimensions: 6’0” x 20” x 2 1/2” (Vol. 31.9) / Shaper: Nev Hyman / The Hellfire is a contemporary Hybrid, taking the best characteristics of the Dominator and Spitfire, maintaining bottom curve, thickness distribution, and rail volume, but adding two inches in length with a narrower nose and tail. Deeper double concaves for extra lift and drive at speed. firewire2 [4] Sweet Potato / Dimensions: 5’4” x 21 1/2” x 2 1/2” (Vol. 35.7) / Shaper: Dan Mann / 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. For one- to three-foot surf. | [5] Spitfire / Dimensions: 6’2” x 20 1/2” x 2 1/2” (Vol. 38) / Shaper: Dan Mann / The Spitfire combines a diamond tail and step-down tail rail, giving the Spitfire the tail bite of a thinner board, without losing the Dominator’s speed and flotation. The Spitfire offers the same 5/4/3 fin options and a low entry rocker for easy paddling. | [6] Alternator / Dimensions: 5’10”x 18 1/2”x 2 1/4” / Shaper: Nev Hyman / The Alternator Series combines the perfect blend of a short rail line, generous curve, and slightly thicker foil, producing a surfboard that paddles well but still turns on a dime. The Alternator is the workhorse in our collection and is offered in both Future Shapes and RapidFIRE Technology.
