Fast Freeride / Free Race
Originally designed and trimmed to combine early planning, speed, control and
easy jibing, the new Firestorm V3 line has been completely re-considered not
only in terms of shape and details, but mainly for its program of use.
During the last 48 months since the first introduction of the Firestorm V1 Line,
we have consistently kept on shaping new prototypes trying to improve the magic
mix of the existing boards. But we could only improve one or two parameters,
better upwind or better jibing while keeping the same top speed, but then either
early planing or manouverability was getting worse. 48 months of development,
over 25 prototype boards and over 300 hours of testing time in the water have
not been able to improve the magic mix of the V1 and V2 Firestorm shapes.
Then we have started to re-consider the program of use and we have understood
that when you choose a new board around the program of ?fast freeriding? the
most important parameter is SPEED. So the whole concept of creating a 30% faster
board whilst keeping early planing and control have given life to a completely
new line of Firestorm boards: the VERSION 3.
