The Gamma is Kelly’s ultimate utility shortboard built in our popular HELIUM technology.
Kelly has worked with many great shapers throughout his life, refining an array of different shapes, and it’s all been distilled into the Gamma: a shortboard designed for rapid speed and quick direction changes in varying conditions.
This shape came from Kelly’s enthusiasm for CAD design, modifying variables, and testing, retesting, testing again, and then landing on his favourite all around shape. But Kelly is quick to mention that this was more than just him in the lab alone, “Thanks to all my friends who have been riding them and giving feedback,” he says. “This one has definitely been a group effort.”
When you view the Gamma’s outline for the first time, a hip is immediately noticeable. This enables a tight turning radius, allowing Kelly (and everyone else) to surf this shape two different ways: short and wide, or long and narrow.
That’s why Firewire have given everyone the choice between High Performance dimensions and Groveller (Wide) dimensions.
This board has a single concave through nearly the entire hull, with a slight vee happening behind the thruster box. So, the Gamma will excel most for surfers who favour big, forceful movements on rail, and manoeuvres commonly associated with power surfing.
HE - (Helium Technology)
The same expanded lifespan beyond traditional materials that many expect from FST, in addition to the gentle compression beneath your feet that others love about LFT. We used the lightest foam we have to make Helium, combined with a brand new rail crafted from both balsa wood and paulownia wood. It’s all wrapped in a brand new deckskin material we’re introducing for the first time.
LFT - (Linear Flex Technology)
LFT incorporates Firewire’s SPRINGER HD, a 0.75" (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centreline of the board, representing the next generation in our SPRINGER technology. The SPRINGER HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimising flex from nose to tail.
