Firewire and Rob Machado Join Forces

There are very few world-class surfers who also design and shape boards, so when the opportunity to work with Rob Machado presented itself, Firewire leaped at the opportunity.

“We’ve followed Rob’s career for many years, and there are only a handful of surfers from any generation whose relevance has stood the test of time to the degree that Rob’s has, a testament to his surfing ability and character”, said Firewire CEO Mark Price.

“The opportunity for Firewire to build Rob’s personal surfboard designs for surfers around the world is quite candily, an honor.”

Rob added,” I’m so excited to be working with the crew at Firewire. I’ve been designing boards for many years now and it’s going to be really cool to see those designs come to life in the firewire construction. Their focus on producing the most environmentally conscious surfboards is unmatched by anyone in the industry and it makes me feel that much better about the boards we are making.”

The first 2 Rob Machado designs will be available in early 2016, and will be offered in Firewire’s proprietary, eco-friendly TimberTEK construction. In addition, Rob has collaborated with renown Hawaiian artist Sig Zane and various applications of Sig’s art will also be offered on some of the boards.

Firewire believes that minor refinements to the shape of today’s modern surfboards can only produce incremental performance benefits. Exponential improvements in performance require the ongoing development of new materials, construction methods and radical shape, which, in turn, will fuel new design success.

In addition, with the increased eco-consciousness of today’s consumer, Firewire is constantly refining our raw materials to decrease the environmental impact of our boards. Currently our surfboards emit only 2% of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that conventional polyurethane boards do throughout their lifespan.

Stormtroopers surfed the spectacular Severn Bore.

There was an unworldly sight in the Forest of Dean this morning (Friday 27th November) when a trio of Star Wars Stormtroopers surfed the spectacular Severn Bore. Key scenes from the upcoming Star Wars episode VII were filmed in nearby Puzzlewood and can be seen several times in the trailer. Swapping the Death Star for surfboards, the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire took to the waves to mark the release of the highly anticipated new Star Wars film and a new TV & Movie Trail. The Forest of Dean’s atmospheric and picturesque location provided a natural stage for the film, which director J.J Abrams referenced in a thank you letter to all of the movie’s cast and crew.

SURFAID DROPS IN ON BIG STICK, SANTA CRUZ

Get your stoke on in Santa Cruz and support the surfer’s charity of choice, humanitarian aid agency, SurfAid. On Saturday April 23, 2016, SurfAid will be hosted by the Big Stick Surfing Association (BSSA) in Santa Cruz to run a SurfAid Cup event as part of the annual Logjam! surf contest.

The SurfAid Cup is a tag-team format surf competition. Each team of 4 is required to raise a minimum of $5,000 for SurfAid. While all teams get to pick a pro or local legend surfer, the team that raises the most money gets the first pick of pro surfer to join as their 5th team member. Past pros include Tom Curren, Donavon Frankenreiter, Joel Tudor, and Strider Wasilewski. Trophies are awarded to winning surfers and the winning fundraisers.

“SurfAid is thrilled to be partnering with BSSA for this event. Not only will it be an incredible chance to surf the fantastic break at Santa Cruz, but an opportunity to save some lives as well.” Says Karl Luber, board chair of SurfAid US.

Started 16 years ago by a group of intrepid surfers, SurfAid’s programs have grown to four areas in Indonesia. With strong support from the likes of Billabong, the sports action industry and many other generous individuals and foundations, SurfAid provides life saving work to some of the most remote and impoverished villages – all near to places surfers love to go.

In Nias, Indonesia, SurfAid has helped to reduce maternal deaths from eight annually to zero in just 28 months. Their programs work with communities on simple things like washing hands, safe delivery practices, sleeping under a mosquito net, exclusive breastfeeding, and improved nutrition; all of which have an enormously positive impact on the health of women and their families
