board looks more ideal for open face waves vs hollow drainers. nice to have all that speed so you can outrun sections easily.

Bumping thread, ride reports? Anyone come across videos of someone riding one?
I checked one out while picking up my Flat tracker and again like the Flat tracker they are recommending board sizes way bigger than i'm used to. They have a sweet looking 6'4x20x2.5 thruster setup in stock, I would normally dismiss a board this size but they are saying that is a good size for me (5'7 150lb), even suggested bigger. My gut tells me it will feel like a huge boat, but maybe not?

Well doesnt look like there is much feedback on this board. I went back to the shop, board wasnt as beefy as I recalled, its actually nicely foiled, pretty light, feels smaller than the dims would suggest. I guess ive been so focused on volume and dims over the years I can be a bit close-minded to this type of board. Jon Peck says its a good size for me, who am I to argue? My Flat Tracker now has a friend, 64x21.25x2.6

nice! Beautiful, classic, clean looking board. Maybe give us a report after you have a few surfs on it.
Just curious, what type of SD wave do intend to use it for? Is it meant to be your step-up?

Nice looking board for sure.


We'll take the road that leads down to the waterside.

Thanks! I will report back, once it stops raining and I can get back in the water. I'll be surfing Del Mar beach breaks as well as the reefs, I also plan to take it out at Oside Harbor. It is meant as a step up but i'm hoping it will work in average conditions as well, i'm not expecting it to go well when it's under chest high, that's when I break out the Flat Tracker.

Very nice indeed!!!
I felt up a few last week. I have my eye on a 6'6 or 6'8 stock. Both felt very nice under the arm.
Me 5'11 185lbs and usually ride a CC 5'8 Fish.

I think these go in just about anything from waist high up to pretty damn big, DOHish. Nice travel board or semi step up when its firing.

Looking forward to the ride report.

I think Tomo is with firewire for more than just money. He helped them developed the LFT tech. I think he sincerely believes in the tech -deforest

I think the USA "made in america" board builders "marketing" gimmick falls more inline with a cult than the firewire following -deforest

Curious to know how far up the middle fin is from the tips of the swallows. Looks more than the standard 3.5" - 4". A tighter fin cluster?

These have a bit of rocker, right? Christenson Australia has been making much shorter ones (5'-6' range). I imagine they probably work better in the waves in Northern NSW than a short one would in California.
