The Firewire tail pads are a pretty interesting development in the sustainable surfing equipment world – the foam that these tail pads are constructed out of is made out of a derivative of Algae. Furthermore, the Algae that is used to make this foam has been sourced from waterways that have, or are at risk of algal blooms. The look, feel and texture of these pads to me, seems like any other on the market and they are comparably priced. Seems like a pretty epic development in the reduction of impact that the manufacture of our surfing equipment has on the environment, hopefully there is a bunch of other innovations like this to come down the track.
Flat (no arch)
Perfect shape for Hybrids or can remove centre strip for performance Shortboards
13.5" Width x 12" Height
3M Adhesive Backing

The 2+1 will work well on just about any board you stick it on. With the addition / removal of it's centre strip this flat pad can be narrowed or widened for any board.
Inspired by the wide tails of Rob Machado's models for smaller waves this pad works well as a 3 piece on models such as the Moonbeam or other wider tail models like Dan Mann's Chumlee.
