What the Firewire site says about the Special T:
‘Dann Mann: “Despite his preference for high performance longboarding, Taylor is an accomplished noserider so he wanted his Firewire models to include a design more suited to traditional longboarding. I’ve personally always enjoyed the stylish nature of the ‘old school’ and in particular, riding an original Phil Edwards board that my dad has”.
Dan continued, “After a ton of input from Taylor combined with my own experience, we developed The Special T. The rails have a soft 50/50 curve, along with a scoop nose concave and extra tail flip. We also relaxed the nose entry rocker to enhance tip riding, allowing riders maximum glide and trim with ease.’
What people are saying about it:
“Compared to the other longboards in the Firewire Range – this model has a much flatter rocker with a focus towards more trim, glide and speed. The rails are a more traditional 50/50 curve throughout the majority of the board, leading into a tucked edge in the tail. This helps the board trim and sit comfortably in the curl, with the tucked edge making this board a bit more forgiving & easier to turn than many edgeless traditional shapes.” – Zak Surfboards
“The Firewire Timbertek Special T is great idea for anyone wanting ultimate fun in the water, from high performance longboarders to shortboards wanting to have a good cruise. The Special T slides like an ice lolly out the packet.” – Secret Spot
“Dan Mann and Taylor Jensen worked closely together to develop this traditional and stylish single fin noserider.” – Down The Line
“A blend of the traditional and the progressive, nose ride, trim, glide and turn like a pro.” – BoardShop
