Words by Rob Machado: I’ve really been wanting to play around with some longer fishy kind of boards for a while now… Ever since I spent some time with skip frye and he showed me some of his fishes in the 7 foot range It’s been on my mind. I first stretched out the GO FISH and made a 7 footer. It worked great and really got my mind spinning. Then I made a 7’0 seaside and it became one of my favorite boards in my quiver. I rode it in everything. Super small days, bigger days and everything in between. It’s become a board that I will take with me every where I go.
It glides. It turns on a dime and most importantly… it puts a smile on my face.

TIMBERTEK represents a significant step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today’s environmentally conscious world. While by no means sustainably built, Firewire’s TIMBERTEK has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially available surfboard today.
The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown Paulownia wood deck skins, Firewire’s proprietary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat yield an extremely lightweight, durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire’s existing technologies.
Even more impressive, the physical properties of the raw materials involved have allowed us to reduce exterior lamination significantly, furthering the reduction of the board’s carbon footprint. Or as we like to describe TIMBERTEK, it’s simply High Performance Art.
Paulownia wood is extremely fast growing; up to 20 feet in one year when young. Some species of plantation Paulownia can be harvested for saw timber in as little as five years. Once the trees are harvested, they regenerate from their existing root systems, earning the name of the “Phoenix tree.”
Firewire is dedicated to elevating the surfing experience through innovative design, new materials, and advanced construction methods. Every surfboard, traction pad, and leash we build is designed with a single goal in mind – to improve the surfing experience as much as possible while impacting the environment as little as possible.

The black box 3 surfs well in average waves and makes the most out of poorer conditions and easy to get good carry through mushy sections. Feels good to paddle and easy to get into waves. Had a surf the other night in some clean small waves and the board was fantastic. Really responsive, and carried good speed and drive out of turns. Loads of fun. Very happy with the board.
This is my new go to wax. It is sticky and stays on the board really well. If you want a sticky wax that has true grit grip but does not build up, this is a good choice. Some of the waxes kind of just stay on and build up and are not that sticky. This one stays on for a solid two- three hour session and sticks to you really nice. I can ride, fly, spin, barrel, spiral, quantum shift, quasar, and trapeze all the while staying on the board... me my board my balance and this wax... Sticky Bumps... improve your ride...
Very cool i luv it
