    i have a 6'2 futura. I'm 5'11 190 so its a high performance board for me in NJ, but honestly I think I can go smaller. Firewire's website has a sizing guide, but you can also base the board's volume (multiply the dimensions together) and compare it with another board you have or have ridden, by doing the same math. Part of the fun is figuring out the right board to plunk 700$ on. Heritage in OC/NJ demo's some of their firewire's too.

    Why buy a firewire? Why not boost your local economy and order a board from a shaper in town? You'll pay less and get a board shaped by someone who rides that same waves you do as opposed to paying more and getting a chip stamped out in a factory in some landlocked Asian country. Think about it.

    you make a valid argument, and i' don't entirely disagree, except that firewire has only 1 factory located in San Diego. But pickup a firewire board and you'll know why it costs a bit more.

    I thought firewires were produced domestically but wasn't sure, I was alluding more to JS, GSI, and the like. Regardless, my point rings true. It's not local and not suited for the east coast. If you want technology, well, shapers in my hometown at least are using basically the same stuff as the Big Industry companies. You have no excuse for buying a board from 2,000 miles away.

    no you were right on the Asian connection, my mistake as clarified above
