Item Description

6’6" SubMoon

The SUBMOON is the ultimate FUNshape. Designer Nev Hyman explains: We combined a contemporary rocker and concaves and even thickness distribution with a quirky FUNshape outline that encourages a more vertical shortboard approach to the traditional longboard style of surfing. The outline has generous curve between your feet, which encourages the board to get on rail and TURN! The narrower moon tail provides bite, drive and direction, and the snub nose carries area forward for a bit of tip hang-cheater five FUN.

Firewire designs some of the most technologically advanced surfing equipment in the world. Their use of innovative design and materials has the rest of the industry playing catch up. Words like Flex, Parabolic and Sandwich Construction were previously the domain of engineering forums. Thanks to Firewire they are now part of the everyday discussion surrounding surfboard design. Taj Burrow, one of the top surfers on the WCT swears by Firewire’s performance capabilities, and his results certainly seem to back up the claim. Firewire continues to push the performance envelope, constantly introducing major innovations that provide a tangible performance advantage.
