The Firewire Seaside came about after a couple of years of riding the Go Fish, Rob Machado felt there was room to develop the board into something more high performance, allowing for more carves and tighter turns. Taking the Go Fish, he’s refined it with less area in the tail and narrowing both the swallow tail and the nose and the result is the Firewire Seaside.
Rob has completely redesigned the bottom contours to suit the quad fin set up. Unlike the Go Fish, the Firewire Seaside is strictly a quad.
The Seaside, (named after Rob’s local break), is available in Helium technology. After testing a prototype in LFT, Rob felt Helium would suit the beach breaks and little points that the board will really light up in, due to the light weight and responsive properties.

A note on Helium Technology:
Firewire’s Helium Technology builds on their FST tech to take things up a level. A super light .8lb EPS interior core is sandwiched with a newly developed composite skin. The redesigned parabolic rail contains both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is a 15% lighter board than the already light FST… Quicker flex and rebound characteristics and a higher breakpoint.
