HELIUM Surfboard Technology by Firewire

Helium Technology: Lightweight Powerhouse

If you're after speed and agility in everyday waves, Helium technology is your go-to choice. With a stringerless EPS foam core and wood rails for controlled flex, Helium boards offer a lively and responsive feel underfoot. Helium technology is a stringerless 1.0 lb EPS foam core with flex controlled with rails made from Paulownia and Balsa wood, running the complete length from nose to tail, combined with a 3mm proprietary aerospace composite deck skin.

Firewire is known for leading the surf industry in terms of modern, high-tech surfboard construction, and recently they have added a number of different construction options to their surfboards. Two of the most popular—LFT and Helium—provide similar all-around benefits such as lightweight and durability, but also have their own specific advantages, depending on what you are looking to do on your surfboard.

Helium Surfboard Construction also has a durable deck skin, but controls flex in the rails through a mix of paulownia and balsa wood.


Helium is light and lively, and great for generating speed in weak waves. LFT is still light, but a little more drivey and solid, and great for controlling speed in better waves.” - Rob Machado


Helium Technology Firewire Surfboards

Each Helium shape is cut from the lightest foam blank in our stable – just .8 pounds, combined with a brand- new rail we crafted for Helium, using both Paulownia wood from our Timbertek boards and balsa wood from our FST boards.

It’s all wrapped in a brand new deck skin material we’re introducing for the first time.
