What the Firewire site says about the Flexflight:
‘FLEXFLIGHT’S are true high-performance longboards, incorporating the increased dampening and squirt through turns as a result of CROSSFIRE Technology’s flex characteristics; which eliminate the chatter of a longer board while increasing overall speed, never mind the 30% weight saving and increased strength over regular “PU”.
Crossfire is a hybrid technology, combining the bamboo deck skin of Rapidfire Technology on both the top and bottom decks with the Balsa Parabolic rails of Future Shapes Technology to control flex. The result is a durable, lightweight surfboard with great flex characteristics.’
What people are saying about it:
“I grew up riding longboards and competing in contests throughout Oregon, Washington, and California so I have experience riding many different longboards, and I figured I wouldn’t be too surprised by this new board. However. Right out of the gate I noticed how well the board paddled and floated, which I know most epoxy boards do better because of their construction. When I paddled the board flowed through the water smooth and without chatter or stiffness, and when I got into my first wave I found the board actually has a very similar feel to a poly board, with lots of great flex and feel, minus the stiff rigidness or resistance of a composite epoxy board.” – Nick M. on Cleanline Surf
“The Firewire FlexFlight is the company’s flagship longboard. Designed to push the performance aspect of longboarding but still retain a decent amount of meat to continue to be cruisey. This board is definitely something to consider if you are looking for an all rounder, it will work in everything from ½ ft – triple overhead and then some.” – Secret Spot
“Found it very fast and easy to catch small waves. Love the way it cuts through choppy water. Turns for me on a dime, had to get used to the speed, which was awesome. Smiled all day getting used to its performance.” – user HTC on Surf Science
