The Pile Driver is an extension of the "Driver" series. Emerging from feedback on the very popular "Minnie Driver", the "Pile Driver" is a reaction to wanting a little more out of the Minnie Driver in smaller or softer surf.
Essentially the same board in foil, rocker and outline. the main change is an extension of the tail outline into a subtle double bump swallow. The extended rail line of a swallow tail adds drive and also brings more width and surface area in the tail. More surface area = More lift, which means more fun in small to medium surf.
Pile Driver in Firewire FST Construction
Firewire FST construction is an excellent choice if you are looking for a little extra ding resistance in your Pile Driver. The high density materials on the top and bottom deck as well as the Balsa rails will hold up to dents and dings much longer than a regular PU/Poly board. This makes FST construction an excellent choice if you are tough on your gear or spend lots of time traveling.
Of course there are lots of “stronger-than-a-poly” constructions available, but through years of testing and proof, Firewire is definitely a leader in the pack with plenty of top pros using their FST sticks every day.
The Pile Driver is currently only available in PU/POLY via custom order (we take those too - give us a call!).
