Our Brands > Firewire

Firewire Surfboards has quite a fascinating story thanks to the man behind the boards, Australian shaper Nev Hyman, and has become one of the most well respected high-performance  Epoxy/EPS surfboard manufacturers. Nev was one of the first shapers to embrace the potential of Computer Aided Design (CAD) machining.

When Western Australia based surfboard innovator Bert Berger first approached Nev with what was to become Firewire ‘s Future Shape Technology (FST), Nev immediately appreciated how revolutionary the technology was, and with support of industry veterans, Firewire was born.

Firewire, today partially owned by Kelly Slater, launched the new Slater Designs models and is more than ever dedicated  to develop eco-friendly surfboards.
