Updated: Jul 2

One of our favorite shapers, Dan Mann, is at it again. Here is the latest launch from our friends over at Firewire.


Gimme!


Firewire Surfboards Announces VELOX, An All-New Fin Template Designed to Unlock Fun in all Firewire Surfboards.


Carlsbad, CA (Thursday, June 27th): Firewire Surfboards announces today

the release of VELOX, an all-new fin set with a raked template and an

emphasis on drive and control, now available in authorized retail locations

and online globally as of today.


Designed to pair perfectly with all surfboards in the Firewire Surfboards

range, VELOX was crafted to be a complete fin quiver in a single fin set.

“Versatility in a fin set is important to me.” Explained longtime Firewire Surfboards Shaper Dan Mann. “I think of the new VELOX fin set as the performance baseline for every Firewire Surfboard I design. It’s good to have a constant variable in the design process, and for me, that’s VELOX.”

Designed with more rake in the template than upright templated fin sets like

the Endorfins KS1 template from Slater Designs, Mann describes the

benefits of VELOX: “More rake in a fin template like VELOX makes your

surfboard feel more forgiving, more stable, more directional down the line.

A raked template feels reliable and responsive. It favors flow, speed, and

wrapping cutbacks. It’s perfect for open faces and softer waves, the kind of

waves most of us surf every day.”


With a core engineered from high density polymer overlayed with carbon

veils, VELOX has an unmatched mix of flex and strength, enabling spring

and rebound in turns, and additional control above other fin building

methods.


An extremely light set of fins, VELOX adds minimal weight to all shapes – a

performance benefit championed by Kevin Schulz.

“They’re extremely light so they’re not going to weigh the tail of your board down too much.” Schulz remarked. “That’s always something I like to feel for in fins especially in relation to the weight of the board, you can always feel a pretty big difference when your fins are light sitting in the back of your board.”

Seen today in a new episode of Firewire Surfboards popular YouTube

series “Single Sessions”, Schulz rides VELOX in one of his favorite boards,

the Dominator 2.0 in Helium Technology by Dan Mann.


“I weigh about 170 pounds.” Says Kevin. “I’m pretty used to riding a Large fin set. For me I would gravitate towards a size Large VELOX.”

For optimizing performance and fun in all Firewire Surfboards, both Schulz

and Mann suggest pairing VELOX with the Dominator 2.0, Sweet Potato,

Mashup and all other shapes in the Firewire Surfboards assortments at surf

shops globally.


Available now as a 5 Fin and Thruster set in both size Large and Medium,

as well as a Thruster set in size Small, you can Explore additional features,
