Firewire Machado Seaside and Beyond in Thunderbolt Red with Futures Fins
"I’ve really been wanting to play around with some longer fishy kind of boards for a while now… Ever since I spent some time with skip frye and he showed me some of his fishes in the 7 foot range It’s been on my mind. I first stretched out the GO FISH and made a 7 footer. It worked great and really got my mind spinning. Then I made a 7’0 seaside and it became one of my favourite boards in my quiver. I rode it in everything. Super small days, bigger days and everything in between. It’s become a board that I will take with me every where I go - It glides. It turns on a dime and most importantly… it puts a smile on my face"
This version of the board comes in the amazing Thunderbolt Technology which makes it incredibly lively. Size wise it's all about more volume and with that you can relax, draw out your turns and flow.

Thunderbolt Red utilises fibreglass as an exterior laminate, beneath which carbon fibre is used in ‘A’ and ‘V’ shapes on the boards bottom and deck to control flex along with the deck’s ‘T Stringer'. In short this technolgy makes for amazingly light and flexible boards which don't sacrifice durabilty.
