The pro’s choice version of the Rocket. Pulled in single wing, swallow tail (for tight radius control and precision) and a touch more nose rocker make this hybrid of the Rocket the choice for light, fast, snappy surfers. Gorkin, Ian Gentil, Ben Borgeouis, Asher Nolan, Andrew Doheny, Cory Lopez and Hobgood Bros all count the Grocket as one of their all time favorite boards. …Now available as the “GROCKET BG”. Flatter deck, with full rails and straighter wider tail and nose outlines, give the Grocket “BG” added, built in momentum, and more stable and forgiving ride. This “Gentleman’s” version of the Grocket makes a great all-rounder for slightly older or more solidly built (fat?) surfers.
Firewire Future Shapes Technology (FST)
FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, far greater than traditional surfboard construction methods.
The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures FST boards maintain their lively feel for longer.
