Firewire Seaside & Beyond 6’8

£820.00

The Firewire Seaside & Beyond 6’8 is the latest drool-inducing magic stick from Rob Machado and the Firewire team.

Rob had been interested in a ‘long fish’ since spending time with Skip Frye who showed him some of his fishes in the 7ft range. Rob’s first foray into the’ long-fish’ was a stretched out Go Fish which worked but needed something extra, but his interest was definitely spiked. His next step was to give the incredibly popular Seaside quad-fish the same treatment; stretching it out and fine-tuning the rocker.

The Seaside & Beyond was born and very quickly became the board Rob never left home without. Rob has been riding his Seaside in pretty much anything from 1 foot beach breaks to barrelling reefs and all ports in-between. Rob’s clean and concise quiver currently includes a 5’4 Seaside and a 7ft Seaside & Beyond!

Rob Machado talks about shaping the Seaside & Beyond model:-

“I’ve really been wanting to play around with some longer fishy kind of boards for a while now… Ever since I spent some time with skip frye and he showed me some of his fishes in the 7 foot range It’s been on my mind. I first stretched out the GO FISH and made a 7 footer. It worked great and really got my mind spinning. Then I made a 7’0 seaside and it became one of my favorite boards in my quiver. I rode it in everything. Super small days, bigger days and everything in between. It’s become a board that I will take with me every where I go.”

Specification : 
Dimensions – 6’8 x 20.75 x 2.625
Volume – 40.9l
Fins –
Wave Size : Best suited in 1-5ft surf

Bottom Contours : Board Eat Board/Double Concave

A note on LFT – Linear Flex Technology – A fibreglass and epoxy sandwich with an EPS core and Firewire’s new Springer HD…  a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centre-line of the board, representing the next generation in their ‘Springer’ technology. Unlike the original balsa Springer build, which only added stiffness under the front foot, the Springer HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail.
