The Sweet Potato converts waves that would normally require a longboard (or even just be a non-surf day) into loads and loads of fun because of the insane amount of volume packed into a very short board that is loose and packs tons of drive.
The trademark deep double barrel concave essentially splits the board in half when tipped over and driving through turns, making the board feel way more narrow than it actually is. The new tail outline, combined with some tweaks on the bottom contours through the fins, has increased the maneuverability for tighter pocket turns without taking away the projection and grovel speed in gutless surf.
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!
