Firewire Baked Potato Review

What the Firewire site says about the Baked Potato:

‘Dan Mann has struck gold again, Yukon Gold. The BAKED POTATO offers the same small wave performance as the SWEET POTATO 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 center 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 BAKED POTATO 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. Get cooking on a BAKED POTATO.’

What people are saying about it:

A more performance tuned evolution of the Sweet Potato, the Firewire Surfboards Baked Potato has a more tuned tip and tail, flat deck and lower rails allow you to do things that will surprise you in tiny, weak surf.” – Compare Surfboards

Board went amazing…felt the board caught waves better today. I was frothing like a grommet, catching waves all over the place, felt like I was getting heaps more waves than anyone else, got to love those days.” – user indodreaming on firewiresurfboards.com

One of the Baked Potato’s distinguishing features are the deep double concave through the back half of the board. Between the concaves are a pronounced vee running down the stringer like a spine. It’s the key for transforming frantic pumping into lift and down the line speed. The Baked Potato is a frenetically fast little board.” – Stu Nettle on Swellnet

The board is really stable once moving, and popping up onto even trickier waves a breeze. It catches speed easily on small waves and is really easy to maneuver – a combination of the rail design and the fins, set close to the rail.” – mrgazz.com

The Baked Potato offers similar outstanding small wave performance as the other boards in Firewire’s amazing Potato line, but with some new additions that make it special and worth owning. Aside from looking good, Firewire’s Timbertek represents a significant step forward towards a more sustainable and responsible industry… Simply put – JUST AWESOME!” – Daily Stoke
