firewire // Wingnut Noserider
9’4" x 23 1/2" x 3 3/8" • FINS: Single • SHAPER: Robert ‘Wingnut’ Weaver • Volume: 80.1 (L)
The Wingnut Noserider embodies the best qualities of the original Wingnut model and the Mark Martinson model. The slightly pulled tail, in conjunction with softer rails, result in ultra-smooth turns and cutbacks to go along with improved control, stability, and nose riding. Single fin with tail block standard.
firewire // Wingnut Seaxe
7’6" x 21 ½" x 3" • FINS: Five Fin with Single Box • SHAPER: Robert ‘Wingnut’ Weaver • Volume: 52.1 (L)
This board in the crossover category of board design which fits nicely in this often overlooked part of a quiver. What went into this board is an intense level of attention to detail with Wingnut’s input and experience. There’s a significant amount of volume stashed within the sensitive, performance rail and the nicely foiled nose and tail. The bottom is made up of a mostly flat entry that flows into a bellied vee that runs out the tail. The rocker is curvy and allows for versatility and manoeuvrability as well as drawing clean lines. The range of surf that a board like this will work for rivals most any style of board.
firewire // SPECIAL T
9′ x 22 ¾" x 3" • FINS: Single • SHAPERS: Taylor Jenson and Dann Mann • Volume: 71.3 (L)
Despite his preference for high performance longboarding, Taylor Jenson is an accomplished noserider so he wanted his Firewire models to include a design more suited to traditional longboarding. Dann Mann personally always enjoyed the stylish nature of the ‘old school’ and in particular, riding an original Phil Edwards board that his dad owned. After a ton of input from Jenson combined with Mann’s personal experience, the two developed The Special T. The rails have a soft 50/50 curve, along with a scoop nose concave and extra tail flip. The nose has a relaxed entry rocker to enhance tip riding, allowing riders maximum glide and trim with ease.
firewire // TJ PRO
9′ x 22 1/8" x 2 5/8" • FINS: Three Fin with Single Box • SHAPERS: Taylor Jenson • Volume: 60 (L)m
Taylor Jenson and Dan Mann developed the TJ Pro with slightly more aggressive bottom contours and a touch more kick in the tail. The TJ Pro will go vertical while still maximizing the fun of cruising on a longer board.
