Firewire Tomo SKX Review

What the Tomo Surfboards site says about the Tomo SKX:

‘The Firewire Tomo SKX is Stuart Kennedy’s go to all-round shortboard for the 2017 season. Designed from a Sci-Fi foundation with a pulled in squash tail, the Firewire SKX is Stu’s board of choice for tricky contest conditions, such as variable beach breaks or choppy water where the Sci-Fi may red-line due to excess speed and lift from the wide tail block. The Firewire Tomo SKX Surfboard features a compact outline with an even volume distribution and rocker that hints slightly to the lower end of the general wave spectrum. Combined with the Trademark Tomo QISC (Quad-Inside-Single-Concave), the SKX has instant “get up and go” and incredible responsiveness that compliments a dynamic wave attack.

Volume suggestion: the Firewire Tomo SKX Surfboard should be ridden at a slightly higher volume due to its loose and highly responsive ride characteristics.’

What people are saying about it:

“This model basically fills in the gap where a SciFi may be too over powered in bigger waves or tropic conditions where you’re just going too fast. The squash tail design basically just gives it a bit more hold in waves like Brazil or France where there’s a lot of power in the water.” – Daniel Thompson on  YouTube
