The Vader Modern Planing Hull (MPH) is the continued evolution of the MPH. Over five years in the making, this next rung in the MPH ladder is everything you could want a board to be. The Vader will give you all of the planning and performance of the Vanguard but offers even tighter turns in the pocket is blazing fast and has a skate feel with directional drive. A completely asymmetrical design allows for easy access to airs and further reduces the rail line minimizes drag and increases lift.
The Vader comes in a 5/4/3 configuration allowing you options in fin setups. Unlike most boards that favor one fin setup or the other, the Vader truly rides equally as well as a quad or a tri fin. With the paral- lel rail line the Vader can be ridden much smaller than your traditional board and if you currently have a Vanguard go 1-2 inches smaller than that. Ride the pinnacle in state of the art wave craft and experience a feeling that only the Vader will deliver!

Firewire has always pushed the envelope in surfboard design AND materials – 2017 is no different. Future Shapes Technology (FST) has been an integral part of our success to date. It is the only alternative surfboard technology that has won multiple WSL Tour events, and has also been enjoyed by thousands of surfers around the world for years.
HELIUM builds on the FST technology platform and takes it to the next level.
After years of scouring the composites world (and countless dead-ends along the way) we’ve finally managed to develop an alternative sandwich skin material to the existing FST build. HELIUM combines this new composite with a redesigned parabolic wood rail that includes both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is that HELIUM is even lighter than FST, a slightly faster flex and rebound characteristic, as well as a higher breakpoint. This represents an almost impossible combination of improvements over FST, as in most cases, a significant weight reduction over an already light technology (FST) leads to a lower break point.
In addition, the new deck skin material creates shallow foot-wells which enhance your connection to your board. We have also decided to buck the current aesthetic trend of new technologies. We believe that HELIUM will remain at the pinnacle of surfboard technology for many years to come, and therefore, we decided to go with a minimalist aesthetic that is both immediately recognizable and that will stand the test of time.
