Please tell me your Name, Age, hometown and Occupation:
My name is Noah Erickson, Im 21 years old from newbury park california and I make my living from surfing..
How did you discover Firewire?
Taj gave some of his surfboards he used in the lowers WCT event to one of my uncles friends (Dino Andino). My uncle got one of them and let me use i ... Since then I refused to step foot on any other surf board brand.
What is your take on Firewire Tech/boards?
My Go to firewire is the Taj 6'0. For me that board works In all conditions, From waist high waves to waves well over head. The board is just so fast and responsive, It allows me to approach a wave differently becasue I can make way sharper bottom turns and come out of them faster then a normal board... because the board allows you to be able to do that, It makes it way more easy to find and create sections on a wave.
Can you Share a story where you where blown away on your board, like a maneuver a contest result or breaking a board.
I was blown away from the boards from day 1. From the time I started riding the boards my contest results went up along with my surfing ... Out of the first 5 contests I did riding a firewire I won 3/5 of them and got 2nd place in the other 2. From there on every time I won a contest I would use some of the money to buy more firewires.
I’m trying to get people to understand that boards made out of foam can and will break under the right impact; do you have any broken board stories?
I broke 5 firewires in 1 week when some of the spots by my house got big and crazy. The waves were Big and going below sea level. All boards can break, But I have broke less boards since I have been on firewire.
Are you paid by Firewire surfboards?
I do not get paid By firewire, But I would pay to ride the boards. There is not a day that goes by I do not try to convince people how Good the boards are.
