Firewire Surfboards latest performance shortboard model The Tomo SKX is now in store on our racks at Zak Surfboards. Designed by Dan ‘Tomo’ Thompson as Stuart Kennedy’s all-round shortboard model for the WSL 2017 season and intended to be surfed in mediocre to good waves.
The SKX has a relatively full outline (for a performance shortboard) with a beautifully smooth, medium rocker and a nice even foil. Plenty of foam has been left around the stringer with a domed deck that finishes with a relatively low, refined rail.
The bottom feature the same trademark Tomo (QISC) ‘Quad-Inside-Single-Concave’ bottom contour (although a more subtle version to the Sci-Fi) which helps enable that incredible speed, flow and release which is evident in Stu’s surfing.
This design is recommended to be ridden with a touch more volume than your normal shortboard – with its lower rail and highly responsive ride characteristics you definitely won’t be feeling like you are on something boaty & why not grab a touch of extra paddle power if you can 😉
