Firewire Sunday Surfboard by Rob Machado
The Firewire Sunday surfboard in the new Helium 2 technology is going to smash every record set for surfboard sales, it ticks so many boxes for so many surfers its unreal. Looks like Rob Machado has done it again!! The Sunday appears to be a cruisy 2 + 1 mid length set up, but when you look deeper you'll see it starts at a 5' 6 and goes up to a 7' 3 what kind of madness is that!!
Maybe its not madness maybe Machado has hit upon something different. The reality of this board is that some will ride it as a single fin, some a twin and some as a 2 + 1, its got something for everyone by the look of it. In the smaller sizes its a super fun, speedy twin, which is very pivoty to surf and in the bigger sizes it's a great mid length which will guarantee you a high wave count but be super fun to surf. Then there is the single fin option...and on it goes, so many different options in a functional fun shape.
The board has the wide point quite far forward and it carries a fair amount of volume right up to the nose so it paddled really well and also carried speed, remarkably stable too. There is single into a fairly deep double concave from the centre of the board and then vee through the tail so it generates plenty of lift and so speed and releases smoothly into turns. The pulled in tail is great in the pocket in the smaller sizes and when you scale up to the bigger sizes gives great hold in bigger waves.
Firewire's Helium tech is all about making an already amazing set of construction options even better. Its lighter, seems strong, no signs of any pressure marks at all, and very fast. High Density Aerospace Composite Deck Skins and a new Paulownia/Balsa mix on the rails gives a faster flex response. Having surfed the tech in a couple of different models it does feel light but the speed through a stiffer feel and responsiveness is exceptional, Helium is here to stay.
The Firewire Sunday is maybe the most fun board in the Firewire range, a real crowd pleaser, everyone should have one in their quiver!
Leave it to Rob Machado to design a surfboard for sleepy Sunday morning sessions. After all, there’s no one in the water as cruisey as Rob. The Sunday twin fin/single is exactly what it sounds like—a Sunday Funday shortboard that can be ridden as a twin fin or a single fin, and that goes easy like a Sunday morning.
The Sunday is meant to be ridden with a few extra liters, and you can even size it way up if you feel like having an ultra cruise session. Rob rides both a 5'6" and a 7'0", depending on if he feels like shredding or trimming. The single fin option gives you the opportunity to flow through clean turns that are linked together with ease, while the twin-fin boxes give you the chance to liven things up a bit when you feel like getting radical. Combined with the Helium2 construction, this design gives you that Cadillac feeling whether you are boosting airs or high-lining toward the shoulder.
Depending on your size and ability, you can order the Sunday in lengths ranging from 5'6" (31.2 liters) to 7'3" (56.7 liters). Grab one and be ready for nonstop weekend fun with the family.
