Firewire No Brainer
“The No Brainer is so easy to surf well, you can shred on it even if you don’t have a brain. The Rocker is a tried and true template I’ve relied on for a long time in grovelers. I’ve modified it slightly for Kelly, adding flip in the nose and tail.
Kelly and I have been going back-and-forth on four or five variations of the No Brainer and we’ve landed on something I think is really magic – the kind of board that an advanced and talented surfer can grovel and shred on, but at the same time something that all other levels of surfer can ride in small to decent sized surf.
I recommend surfing this board with your favorite quad set. “

This board being epoxy I’d never ridden one after riding this on a lot of different swells east coast riding the fcs mark richards set up when over waist high rode with MR stabilizer thruster. If you wanna go fast and do big carving turns this is it. Floaters and rebounds effortlessly. Overall fast and Carvy and great in hollow waves. Only thing I didn’t like not much release when trying reversals. Small wave twin set up though it does it.
Great board, perfect cruiser for an old school guy

This was my first board in about 20 years, with all of my past boards being double kick. I wanted something to cruise around the neighborhood with, but I wasn’t quite ready to give up a tail. This is the perfect balance. Good, soft wheels, and fast bearings make it a quick cruiser that’s easy to ride.
And as always, Surf City was super helpful in making the decision!
