McTavish Fireball Evo 2 2+1 FCS - 9'6 Surfboard
- Colour: Red
The Fireball Evo II Longboard is a McTavish icon, with over 25 years of history and development it has become one of the most sort after longboards in the world. The board has reached this level of credibility by simple being an amazing all-round performance longboard that blends three distinct zones into a classic, versatile package.
The Fireball is designed around the four-step routine that has become the benchmark of longboarding technique, whereby each zone is separated by two steps, the Tail, Mid-zone and the Nose.
The tail contains your engine room that will deliver you speed and drive. This is created with a stiff rocker and double concave between your feet, while the fins are located under your back foot to aid drive and easy pivoting. Finally, behind your back foot the tail rocker accelerates to strip away the power form the last foot of foam to allow for steep drops without the nose catching.
Making our way two steps forward into the mid zone were presented with a nice parallel template, flatter rocker and rail bevels to supply comfortable walking stability, clean trimming across those fast sections and the ability to make it through the mushier sections of the wave.
Finally, we reach the Fireballs 19 wide nose, it has a single concave to give you better steering and nose-riding options. The Evo II has a touch less nose rocker than the previous model but has added width to nose to stay in touch with modern trends. Coming set up as a 2+1 with FCSII sides, Bob recommends a 6 to 7 centre fin.
As far as all-round longboards are concerned; the McTavish Fireball Evo II is as good as it gets.
