The Gem is the latest longboard design from Firewire - the result of the ongoing collaboration between head designer Dan Mann and 3 times World Longboard Champion Taylor Jensen. Looking for a new board that could essentially cover him in just about every condition, Taylor wanted something that could both trim and turn sharply. Taylor wanted a design that would sit somewhere between his existing high performance TJPro and his broader, small wave TJ Everyday model.
The resulting Gem design combines a moderate sized planshape, with livelier shortboard style concaves and Taylor's signature fin placement. It has a relatively moderate rocker throughout the front 2/3 of the board with a generous amount of curve through the tail. Single concave in the nose that has lightly rolled section behind it that then leads into a spiral vee/double concave starting a decent way up the board. Dan and Taylor decided to call this model The Gem because of how valuable it is - a one board quiver for 9 foot plus board riders that can trim on the nose as easily as it can carve a decent turn on rail. To me it looks like a great all-round performance longboard for our slopey Victorian waves - come in store and check the Gem out or grab one from us ONLINE
