Kelly Slater has the Gamma as his all round short board of choice. Kelly has made use of his interest in CAD board design and a lot of testing various prototypes to develop this extremely fast and drivey all round shortboard.
Over the past year Kelly has worked with many top shapers, covering a vast range of different shapes and ideas. Above this, it has been the speed and quick directional changes provided by his own personal design that has really excited him.
The Gamma has a single concave bottom with a slight vee behind the back fin, making this board fast and lively. The vee out the back allows for you to get on either rail with ease, and the distinct hip gives it a tighter turning radius. This allows the board to be ridden in the shorter wider dimensions set as well as the higher performance dims set. You will notice the board has two sets of dimensions for most sizes.. These are the "standard" dims and "HP" dims.
The Gamma has a medium rocker, and the rails are medium to slightly pinched.
Helium Technology:New for 2017, Firewire's Helium Technology builds on their FST tech to take things up a level. A super light .8lb EPS interior core is sandwiched with a newly developed composite skin. The redesigned parabolic rail contains both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is a 15% lighter board than the already light FST... Quicker flex and rebound characteristics and a higher breakpoint.The Helium Technology is the result of three years research and development in the Firewire labs, (ie. the sea). What you have is the best elements of the FST and LFT. You have the lifespan of the FST, with the enhanced pop and feel of the LFT. The deck will also compress slightly underneath your feet, responding to your movements. We at Down the Line Surf Co. have every confidence that the Firewire boys have got this completely right... Helium Technology will be here for a long long time!
