The Flexfire Series is designed around the performance specifications of Firewire’s top surfers. The dimensions, foils and rail configurations are all geared towards maximum speed and the tightest turning radius possible on a shortboard. The Rapidfire Technology used on the Flexfire makes it a highly tuned, durable surfboard with increased performance and strength versus traditional surfboards construction configuration. The bamboo deck used optimizes flex patterns and creates significant compression strength. The Flexfire is a great go to shortboard when you want to have a solid session of ripping.

beware of this board. i recently picked one up and 100% of the time, made me end my sessions early. any little impact to the rail / bottom of the board will cause a drastic dings / gashes / crunches in the glass. i own other firewire flexfire boards and theyre built tough but these boards are very ding prone. when it wasnt ingesting water, i must say its one of the fastest and hardest turning boards ive ever ridden but at this rate expect it to last only a few months. i regret throwing away $700.00+ (board + traction + fins) on this firewire rapidfire...

great boardBy pierre yaldo in pierre on 01/28/2010
i got a flexfire 6'0 rapidfire with darker bamboo, and sheet it rides great. dont take my word for it, but i loved it, in normal pu boards, id load all my energy into the board to get a good bottom turn, on this thing, load all your energy into it, and its springiness will send you 5 feet above the lip, not to mention it turns on a dime. and its sexyyy
