When originally designing the Wire, Phase 5 built a fleet of prototype boards that were put through the ringer by the P5 team. The best, most effective features of each prototype were combined together into one fantastic final board shape. The final product has been featured on competition podiums around the world and will help you take your surf game to a totally new level.
The front half of the board starts with a snub nose that runs in a straighter drawn outline into a wider center curved section through the middle. The bottom half of the board features a wing bump that allows greater maneuverability and control using your back foot. The tail is wide with just a slight amount of curvature, making it smooth for spins, stable for recoveries and a great boosting platform on ollies. The fin placement is slightly forward, allowing the Wire to spin easier than many surf style boards.
The Wire’s snub nose shape increases the surface area of the board and allows the board to be ridden a few inches smaller. This nose shape also provides added volume in the nose to keep it out of the water when you need to get on the gas pedal. The Gatorskin Tough Carbon / Aramid Glass layup and the addition of a carbon fiber stringer system on the Wire give this board the strongest, stiffest, fastest and most durable construction available on a surf style board.
The Wire comes with 4.3″ surf style fins for the perfect balance of speed, agility and maneuverability.
