Fire Bolt / Tow Foil Board
John Amundson, North Shore Hawaii, January 2022
NEW VACUUM CARBON / INEGRA CONSTRUCTION!
These foil boards are built with a high density EPS core that is CNC machined and hand finished. The finished blank is then fitted with a shock absorbing/load spreading high density PVC foam plate with Future Fin boxes, this assures a very strong connection between your board and foil. The Fire Bolt Tow is laminated with a high quality carbon / Inegra weave. The carbon is stiff for riding performance while the Inegra gives the shell a high resistance to impacts and damage. The lamination is then cured under vacuum pressure. What this means, excess epoxy is removed for lightness and the carbon / Inegra weave is compressed together for a high degree of stiffness and durability. The board is finished with high quality polyurethane paint. Not only does this construction look beautiful, it is light and stiff for ultimate performance.
The Fire Bolt Tow has been evolving over the last few winters in Hawaii. The 16'' width has three main benefits: First, the narrow width gives the design a straighter / sleeker outline which tremendously reduces drag when the board touches down either on a flat landing or a high speed turn. Secondly, the narrow outline has more clearance between the rail and the water on laid over carves. Thirdly, the weight of the board is focused closer the the center line giving the Fire Bolt Tow a very high degree of sensitivity in turns.
Foot Strap Inserts: The Fire Bolt Tow has a dedicated goofy or regular stance on the front strap.
Concave Deck: The concave deck gives the rider rock solid control with every input of heel and toe being translated directly into the foil. This gives the Fire Bolt an incredibly sensitive feel.
Beveled Rail: The bevel rail design gives more clearance between the rail and water when laying over into turns. This rail design also helps recover and rebound after touching down in a hard turn.
Kick Tail: This tail allows the rider to kick the board up onto the foil much sooner than a flat tail. The kick tail also gives more clearance in steeper waves and in hard turns.
Front and Rear Pads Included: Amundson Customs is proud to introduce the new corduroy cut rear deck pad. This pad is less aggressive than a traditional pad, reducing rash but increasing grip. The Fire Bolt Tow comes with both front and rear pads.
“Lift Stick”: Every board comes with a “Lift Stick” or mast placement measurement logo. This logo helps gauge placement of you mast. The Lift Stick has a + and – to indicate more lift (+ moving mast forward) or less lift (- moving mast back).
Mounting Hardware: Your board comes with high quality M8 stainless steel foil mounting hardware.
WHO IS THIS BOARD FOR?
The Fire Bolt Tow is designed for the beginner to advanced rider looking for the stiffest and most advanced foil boards. John has designed these boards with without the excess volume for paddling and focused on maximum performance on the wave/wake. The Fire Bolt works best for high performance wave riding and wake riding behind the boat.
