Firewire Mashup Volcanic Mannkine + Machado Surfboard Model – The ultimate duo have teamed up again.
Rob Machado and Dan Mann have created the Firewire Mashup Vocanic surfboard, a melding of each of their most popular designs the Seaside and the Spitfire.
Both board designers have spent time mixing and matching their favorite elements of each shape, and they’ve landed at something that goes fast in weak waves as well as a Seaside, and also drives vertically in good waves as well as the Spitfire.
The Mashup is the ultimate groveler and the ultimate everyday board as well.
Built in Volcanic Technology – made from Basalt Fibers Extruded from Volcanic Rocks that are crushed, melted and extruded into woven fibers that make up the cloth. The manufacture of basalt fiber requires the melting of the crushed and washed basalt rock at about 1,500 °C (2,730 °F). The molten rock is then extruded through small nozzles to produce continuous filaments of basalt fiber. Those filaments are then chopped into long stem fibers and woven into lamination cloth fiber.
