Firewire Baked Potatoe Surfboard in Timber tek

  • Sale
  • £550


The Firewire Timbertek Baked Potato surfboard offers the same small wave performance as the Sweet P with a few subtle design adjustments. The nose is pulled in slightly and some of the rail volume has been removed to allow for even faster rail to rail transfers. The Baked Potato has the same aggressive double concaves and 'V-spline' running down the centre of the board which allows the board to get up on the rail much faster than the overall design would indicate.

Primarily designed for smaller, weaker conditions, the BP will surprise you by its performance characteristics, and how the quad fins set further back and closer to the rail than usual, allow the board to hold with- out sliding, even in larger surf.

TIMBERTEK represents a huge step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today's environmentally conscious world. While by no means 'carbon neutral' or sustainably built, Firewire's TIMBERTEK has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially producedsurfboards today. 

Grant Newby, a talented Ozzy craftsman first turned us on to the potential of this construction, and following his lead, our Firewire R&D and production team worked tirelessly to make this tech a reality in a production setting. Building one-offs or small quantities is one thing (and not to be discounted), but it took a huge effort to overcome all the technical problems that became apparent as we tweaked the original recipe to increase performance and build reasonable quantities. Of course having our own vertical factory was a huge help.

The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown timber deck skins, Firewire's legendary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat give an extremely lightweight and durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex traits of Firewire's existing technologies. Even more impressive,this tech has lead to a significant reduction in exterior lamination significantly further educing the boards carbon footprint. TIMBERTEK, it's simply High Performance Art!
