Originally designed and trimmed to combine early planing, speed, control and easy jibing, the new Firestorm V4 line has been completely re-considered not only in terms of shape and details, but mainly for its program of use.
During the last 48 months since the first introduction of the Firestorm V1 Line, RRD have consistently kept on shaping new prototypes trying to improve the magic mix of the existing boards. However, they could only improve one or two parameters, better upwind or better jibing while keeping the same top speed, but then either early planing or manouverability was being sacrificed.
48 months of development, over 25 prototype boards and over 300 hours of testing time in the water have not managed to improve the magic mix of the previous Firestorm shapes.
Then they started to re-consider the program of use and understood that when you choose a new board around the program of “fast freeriding” the most important parameter is SPEED. So the whole concept of creating a 30% faster board whilst keeping early planing and control has given life to a completely new line of Firestorm boards: the VERSION 4.


Construction:
LTD: semi custom / Innegra carbon deck glass bottom

Based on the outline and scoop rocker line of the PWA world champion’s X- Fire V7 boards, the FIRESTORM has taken this shape base and been modified by comparing with the X-Fire boards.
The Outline is slightly narrower in the tail area and has smaller tail cutouts so as to reduce the tail lift when overpowered while keeping the same planing capacity, more suited for freeriding than for pure racing.
The Toro tail is being reduced in terms of extra width over the hull’s wetted surface and has been moved slightly further back, to allow more pressure with your back foot onto the fin without too much effort. This results in better upwind performance and better average speed in long runs.
The Rocker line, hull shape and volume distribution instead have been kept absolutely the same as X-Fire V7 boards. Same soul as the world champions. The footstraps inserts have kept the possibility to use a more inboard position for choppy water or more “freeride use” and a more outboard position for flat water or “top speed” setting.
The result of all these features has allowed the creation 3 brand new boards that will help improve your speed on the water and give you immense joy to stay ahead of the others.
