Firewire Evo in New Helium 2 Construction
The Evo Surfboard is a staple of the Firewire quiver—a snub-nosed modern planing hull from Tomo that set the stage for the avant garde shaper’s ubiquitous “quad inside single concave” bottom contour. Rippable, user-friendly, and infinitely grovelable, the Evo was released in 2014 in LFT construction, and then eventually graduated to Helium. Now Firewire has released the popular Surfboard in Helium 2 with UV inhibitors, so it stays white and intact for longer.
We’ve had numerous people come into the shop to tell us about their Firewire Surfboards in Helium, with some saying that their boards are still good as the day they bought them, even after tons of sessions!
This is good news for a groveler like the Evo because the reality of surfing is that there are more small days than there are big, and your small-wave Surfboards are likely to get more use than anything else in your quiver. A board that holds its structural integrity, doesn’t give way to pressure dings as easy, and still looks good after being shredded all over. What more can you ask for!
