Freeride is perhaps the most popular windsurfing discipline. All riders, regardless of their skill level enjoy an exciting freeride session once in a while. Dedicated freeriders need reliable board which can reach intense speeds and offer them a unique thrill out on the waves. The 2011 Firestorm W-Tech was crafted by RRD team especially for them. The board is perfect for dynamic freeride session and offers a unique mix of speed and control.

Using the Firestorm W-Tech is like driving a sports car: the board accelerates quickly, it reaches a fast top speed, it is easy to control and feels very comfortable. The board is engineered using a Glass crossed fibers laminated in Single Shot moulding process structure complemented by an EPS/HD Glass/Wood sandwich skin on top and bottom. This construction makes it very light and durable. Due to the lighter weight, the board planes easily and reacts quickly to rider input.

A new bottom design, featuring a simple V to double concave plus a flat V in the tail generates a very fluid drive. It assures optimal release and a faster top speed, while also improving stability. Extra stability is added by the proportional volume distribution. The new scoop rocker significantly improves control and allows the rider to run fast without much effort. It also provides better upwind performance and maintains a good acceleration when exiting a jibe. The RRD Firestorm W-Tech is fast and dynamic. It is also very reliable and offers a very fun freeride session.

The Firestorm is a very easy to sail board in flat waters. It is fast, but does not require too much input to get the best out of it. The board also runs very nice and it is easy to control in chop. It has excellent rail grip and gybes like no other...more
