Meet Linden's Sebastian Williams model


Industry Updates

Gary Linden has created the essential grom board in Firewire materials

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 16 August, 2013 : - - At only twelve years of age Sebastian Williams has his own Linden/Firewire model. With the rapid advancement of groms’ surfing ability today, the days of "growing into your board" are over.

The Sebastian Williams’s Pro Models are designed for catching waves and competing NOW. They were designed by Gary Linden, who has worked with Sebastian for many years and incorporate a fuller nose outline and lower entry rocker, allowing for more rail in the water and thus greater speed and wave catching ability.

Gary has designed two SW Pro models. The first features a bump wing with "V" through the tail. This model suits the developing power surfer who is already starting to push their rail-to-rail surfing. The second SW Model has a more streamlined curve and a single concave bottom for flying down the line and busting air, while still allowing for tight turns in the pocket. A true ‘Pro Series’ board.

Gary Linden who has not only shaped Sebastian’s boards since day one, but is also recognized as one of the world’s best and most experienced board designers.

“Its not every day that a talent such as Sebastian comes along and Firewire is ecstatic he has chosen to endorse our technology”, said Mark Price, CEO Firewire Surfboards. “We’re also excited to work with Gary Linden as both Chuy Reyna, Firewire’s Marketing Director, and I rode his boards during our Pro careers, so we can attest first hand to his board design skills”.

"Having the opportunity to apply Firewire technology to the board designs that Sebastian and I have been working on is special,” said Gary Linden. “The incredibly important aspect of flex can now be incorporated into boards built for lighter surfers who without these construction methods were essentially left out of the benefits. Reuniting with a couple of my former team riders, Mark and Chuy is an added bonus insuring the integrity of the surfboards we produce."
