These keep popping up on instagram but I have yet to see anything on the firewire site. Are there any specs on these, or release dates?

From what I've heard from the surf expo is initially it will be Baked Potato and Spitfire only. EPS core, parabolic rails, sustainably grown wood deck and bottom skins and entropy bio-resin hot coat. No external fibreglass. Very light weight apparently.

sounds good, baked potato is what I'm buying next, or if my dominator sells it will be a spitfire :)

Apparently WAY lighter than FST. The guy from Locals Surf Shop said he'd been feeling up the 503 Baked Potato at the Expo and it felt like it weighed around 4lbs... I'm not sure how accurate that is but it certainly sounds promising. Dammit now I want a TBP503 instead of my FPT502.

The step up dominator thingy. There's a thread in the Europe section of the forum.

The Technograin will likely make it to retail as we approach March and April. The Unibrow towards the end of Feb. Numbers will start small and grow!!
Dams it looks sexy!!! Sort an answer for those melancholic Arbor lovers!!!
What was the answer to it on the expo???. Have you ridden one Chris?
01-16-2013, 12:07 PM
yeah i have. the tech is insane and the response at the show was so positive. People were freaking out on it!!
Its a game changer!!

Wow, looks DOPE cuz.
Can you guys stop releasing new boards plz? I am going bankrupt, virtually that iz :)

Looks awesome....I wouldn't want to put a pad on it it's so pretty! lol

Well for that part, you can XM Clear Grip the entire board and just get the lil kick tail thingy. I've seen em around, very cool.
01-22-2013, 10:13 AM
that would be cool aurf.

Does that mean the unibrow will be out in techno grain early 2013 ? If so will any reach the uk?
01-23-2013, 11:28 AM
hows the ride as compared to the fst? and durability? i like the feel of fst a lot
Hi Chris - are techno grain only going to be in US or can we get em in OZ? I read one place only in the US but another indicated they would be in Australia soon? Thanks Jus

I am also wondering about durability compared to fst? Has there been any stress tests done to the boards? You should make i vid showing how much force all firewires can take before they break along with comparing the same dimension regular PU boards stress at the same. This would make your sales go up for sure.

Technograin will be available in AUS in quarter 2 of 2013 and it will be launched in the Baked Potato and Spitfire models.
No dates on the calendar for the Unibrow in TechnoGrain to hit the UK at this point.

I am also curious about the durability and the weight of the technograin boards. They look insane but if they are lighter than the rapidfires wouldnt that effect the drive of the board especially when there is some wind coming up the face of a wave?
Yeeha They sound awesome ill be updating as soon as i can when they hit oz thanks CHRIS

Chris , do you have a release date for Europe (France) ? I'm interested in a TG spitfire.
02-13-2013, 11:30 AM
i read the 3rd quarter of 2013
Hey Chris, I was just reareading the tech - any details on how to repair these guys, can you use epoxy sun cure type resins or is it going to be something completely different? Thanks

any more info on the techno grain boards.. eyeing up a unibrow.. durability info would be great and how is the performance compared to fst?? i like the weight of the fst but the techno's look really sweet.. too light is a bad thing no?
