Firewire Timbertek Dominator Review

What the Firewire website says about the Timbertek Dominator:

About the Dominator:

‘Designed by Dan Mann, and perhaps the most versatile board in the Firewire quiver to date, the DOMINATOR combines a full outline with a thick foil from nose to tail and a 5/4/3 fin configuration. Dan moved the wide point back to reduce the nose profile, maintaining all of the speed but with none of the top turn drawbacks of retro nose outlines. Built with the flex characteristics and lightweight of FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY, the DOMINATOR paddles like it’s turbo charged and does not track like heavier PU boards with similar dimensions. Take Charge!’

About the Timbertek:

‘TT (TimberTek) – 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.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Firewire Surfboards Timbertek Dominator is perhaps the most versatile board in the Firewire quiver to date, the Dominator combines a full outline with a thick foil from nose to tail and a 5/4/3 fin configuration(use as a 4 fin quad or 3 fin thruster).” – Boardshop.co.uk on YouTube

“I bought this board for my wife, it was her first firewire surfboard and her exact words were she loved it. The best board she had ever had. Easy to paddle, but also easy to turn and to see a big smile on your wife’s face is priceless. It not only looks great, but the timbertek is really light and strong, so I don’t have to carry her board each time, whoop whoop.” – user Oliver Crter on boardshop.co.uk

“This board is amazing! It paddles like a long board and surfs like a short board. Pretty much the all arounder I’ve been looking for. I’ve used it in junky 1-2ft beach breaks and had a blast. I have the TT model and the only concern is the durability because I cracked the deck after two sessions with it. It repairs like a regular epoxy and I haven’t had any issues since.” – user mooch on cleanlinesurf.com

“I Was looking for allround board that is perfect for someone who can’t surf every day. The Dominator is what I was looking for. I definitely would recommend this board for people who can surf but have some trouble with the paddle power because they don’t surf as much as they would.” – user Marco on boardshop.co.uk
