This kid rips and looks he is riding Firewire boards now. Not bad for a 14-year old.
Anyone know what model he's riding or heard anything about this?

Jack Robinson on Firewire?
Hellrazor v. HellfireI am hoping there are people who can shed some light on the performance differences between a Hellfire and a Hellrazor.
Currently I have been riding a 5'6 Hellfire since September. My skills keep progressing and I have been working way down in size and volume. I think I am near the ideal volume for my weight & height, skills will continue to improve and I want my surfing to progress.
My Hellfire floats me well and I can get into waves good. Shortcomings are paddle strength (due to not getting out enough in the Winter and wave judgement). Surf SoCal in mainly knee to head high waves.
I am intrigued with the Hellrazor and have ridden a 5'9 but it felt too long and maybe a bit much volume.
At times my Hellfire feels a little thick in the rails and possibly the tail.
I also tried a 5'8 MB (thin) and it floated me fine, paddle pretty easily but not as easy to catch waves as my HF.
As I have read the HF has a more noticeable double concave whereas the HZ doesn't. What effect will this have on how the board paddles, rides, etc?
Also sounds like the tail is thinner on the HZ...how does this translate in performance?
If I bought a HZ it would be a 5'7 which is 1/8" thinner and has 1.8L less volume than my HF.
When I put the 5'7 HZ under my arm it feels so good but I am struggling with pulling the trigger on another $650 board.
Any help and feedback is appreciated.
FCS fin recommendations for lighter riderLooking for some fin recommendations for my 5'6 Hellfire. Currently using a set of K2.1 thrusters in my Spitfire but was looking at picking up a set of AM-3's for the Hellfire.
Any thoughts? 140lbs., intermediate, surf SoCal waist to head high.
5'4 or 5'6?I have been surfing a 5'6 Spitfire for the last year and love it. I am considering sizing down to a 5'4 and wanted to hear people's opinions on size recommendations.
Newer to surfing and have been slowly moving down in board sizes as my skills have improved. 5'4, 140 lbs., low intermediate and constantly improving, surf SoCal (knee to head high).
Still want something that paddles well and catches waves easily in the knee to shoulder range but also want to take my surfing to the next level while continuing to have fun.
1) What size board would be most recommended given my weight, skill and desire to improve?
2) What sort of perfomance characteristics could I expect at my weight and skill level if I did go with a 5'4 versus my 5'6?
3) If I went with a 5'4 would it push my surfing and help me improve at a faster pace?
riding 506 Spitfire looking for step upI wanted to get some opinions on boards as I am "considering" getting a 2nd board.
Some facts first: 5'3, 140lbs, surf North County San Diego, low intermediate (newer to surfing but improving quickly), currently riding 506 Spitfire and sometimes feel like a need a board with a little more manueverability. Although it very well could just be the operator and the need to improve my skills further.
I tested the 508 Hellfire last night, nice board but maybe feels too much volume, and am going to try the 506 Hellfire this weekend.
I want something that can still paddle well and catch waves in the 3 foot range but allows me to surf more aggressively, start to go top to bottom, etc. especially as waves get bigger. As of now I pretty much surf 3-6 foot max.
If I were to step up what boards would be recommended and what size? What would some of the characteristics I could expect?
If I am totally off base and I just need to keep improving on my 506 Spitfire before stepping up let me know.
Thank you all in advance for your opinions.
By the way I love the Spitfire and maybe could have gone 504 but my 506 catches a lot of waves, especially this Summer, and has helped me improve alot.
Loved your Hellfire video!
