With the Volcom Fiji Pro on my mind, fingers crossed I make the cut and get invited back to the best place in the world—Tavarua. And if that invite comes, I’m going to need a reliable and tough shortboard to navigate the shallow barrels found out in front of the resort at Restaurants. Last year I rode a 6’2” out there but it felt too long and ended up breaking in half mid way through the trip. That was a bummer. This year, I think the best board to bring would be something that won’t break too easy, and will work well in draining tubes—which is where Firewire and …Lost collab comes in. Set up as a quad, I’ll (hopefully) be flying through tubes and not worrying about it snapping in half when I inevitably eat shit onto the reef. As well, if the right is the jam I’ll simply set it up as a thruster and go to town backside.—Justin Coté
