Threading the needle with Timmy Reyes: High speed greed

Time to read: 1 minute

Just dropped is another mind-bending clip from Timmy Reyes and the folks over at Firewire surfboard as he tests out the new Hydroshort in insane secret barrels.

‘The Hydroshort session that nearly broke our iPhones’ clip is pure surf porn.

The new Hydroshort is, according to the Firewire homepage is the ‘Next generation performance with consideration for artificial waves’ but there’s nothing artificial about the fickle point that Reyes shreds and threads.

Firewire go on, promising

‘Highlighted by the ultra-modern ‘torpedo nose ‘profile the Hydroshort has an incredible rail to rail flow and low swing weight at the front end which translates to a feeling of instant response. Coupled with a clean continuous, (medium) rocker curve and the Quad inside single concave (QISC) the Hydroshort is ready for maximum wave attack with tremendous burst of speed.’

And Reyes needs every inch of that speed.

The Huntington Beach local is known for his work ethic and fearlessness in his strike missions to distance and dangerous waves. In fact, he’s made a solid career out of it himself. Supported by Vans, O’Neil and Arnet he’s been just about everywhere and surfed it twice, but these blistering barrels, reminiscent of a reversed Skeleton Bay, are still fresh and inspiring.
