Chuy Reyna has been with Firewire since it was founded. He’s a great surfer and I always appreciate seeing him ride my boards.
One day I shaped him a dominator. And he liked it. But he felt like he wanted more bite on tightly angled turns in the pocket. So before the board was glassed he gave the tail a nip and a tuck to create the stepped down diamond tail you see it today. And the Spitfire was born.
I think what has made this board so popular in places like California, the United Kingdom and France is how full the rails and the foil are with foam, coupled with a rocker curve and fin placement that simply work great in waves that are not barreling top to bottom.
For most surfers who are dialing in their quiver for waves around home, I think the spitfire and the Chumlee are a great combo to have in your trunk.

Gary shaped me a perfect longboard, catches any wave, and even take it out on big tropical event swells.

I have the zap pro 54 inch skimboard and I love it. It has helped me progress through a multitude of stages of skimboarding. I have learned how to jump waves 3 shuv and many more things. It is built amazingly and has yet to have any damage or wear done to it over the past few years.The glide is amazing it rotates perfectly with every spin. The speed you can get on this is outstanding. It is the handsdown fastest skimboard I have ever ridden and I have been on quite a few skimboards. The way it pops over waves is seamless. There is no effort involved in getting over waves. I have taught classes with it and have been complimented on it a multitude of times. The overall review is that it is a 5 star board. It is great for doing tricks and learning new ones along the way.

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.
