Firewire | Summer Surfboard Buyer Guide

(image 4 of 12)

Model: Pile Driver • Dimensions: 6’2” 20 1/2” 2 5/8” 35.3L • Shaper: Matt Biolos • Description: The Pile Driver is an extension of the “Driver” series. Essentially the same board in rocker, foil and outline, the main change is an extension of the tail outline into a subtle double bump swallow. The extended rail line of a swallowtail adds drive and also brings more width and surface area in the tail. More surface area equals more lift, which means more fun in small to medium surf.
