From what I understand the next batch of boards isn't hitting the UK until March. I'd say it was possible there could be limited numbers of the new models on that shipment. I don't think it'll be long before the new boards are announced so keep your eyes peeled.
Sorry curiosity was killing me.. Googled the new models and Just saw this on a UK website... http://www.secretspot.co.uk/Brands/firewire/
New models coming for March 2012 include the Potatonator which is a cross between the sweet potato and dominator and this is one surfboard we are very excited about.We also have the Detonator We also have the Hellraiser coming which were sure will be popular and also a Michael Bourez Pro model coming into stock.
Potatonator= is a cross between the sweet potato and dominator (that was posted and is obvious)
Detonator = narrower version of the Dominator, nose and round tail pulled in more with wings?
Hellraiser= Hell Fire with a narrower tail template offering it as winged Swallow tail also?
Michael Bourez Pro = double sting wing - bat fang pin tail as seen on the Japanese youtube shot
Personally, I'll just keep my fingers crossed for an FST Sub Driver.
The Scorcher was planned originally, before the Sub, but then Matt B changed his mind and decided he wanted to go with the Sub instead. The Driver has been in the works for a while, I know donniedarko got a custom Driver from Matt in Hydroflex tech that was taken from the FW Driver file. Note the FW Driver V6.2 written on the board. http://i253.photobucket.com/albums/h...t/834776bd.jpg
Matt said "The FW stands for fire wire , which I am developing the Driver in for next year."
If that is coming next year, I believe there might be another ...Lost shape coming too. But I guess we'll have to wait and see because the collabs ideas seem to change quite often. The ...Lost collabs are cool though, the more the merrier!
Hey gang. The lost collab is still alive and growing.
to clear up a few things, the Grocket and the Scorcher are no longer on the table even though they both were once on it and ready to go. When Firewire and Matt Biolos chat, things are put in place, calendars are set but sometimes in between decisions and the actual initiation of production, awareness of one thing or another changes what gets built.
Its not perfect, but collabs are two-way streets which can make the pipeline a different animal.
