Firewire is dedicated to elevating the surfing experience through innovative design, new materials, and advanced construction methods.
All our surfboards and accessories are designed and built with two goals in mind:
- Improve the surfing experience as much as possible.
- Impact the environment as little as possible.
Our aim is to achieve these objectives while supporting the global surf community through our engagement with environmental and humanitarian organizations such as Surf Aid, Surfrider Foundation, Parley for the Oceans, Surfers against Sewage, Share the Stoke Foundation, Save the Waves and more. If we don’t give back along the way, no matter our success in building our business, in our view that is diminished.
This sense of purpose has created a mind-set whereby all of us at Firewire, Slater Designs and Tomo Surfboards feel a deep-seated obligation to operate our business in the most sustainable way possible, and that mission has driven us to develop ever-less toxic methods of building our surfboards. From the adoption of Entropy bio-resin mentioned above, the zero-waste by 2020 goal, and the upcycling of our EPS waste to create durable garden pavers, we are never satisfied in this quest.
