Firewire Stealth & Lost Sub Scorher In Store Now

Available now in FST technology as a 5 fin “convertible”. Finally, there’s a board that can be “everything for everyone”   The “Sub Scorcher” I wanna board for ‘mush’. Something short and wide, but still a hi performance shortboard….something like Dane’s board”, Kolohe Andino. The challenge was laid down.
