What the Firewire site says about the Nano:
‘The original MPH (Modern Planing Hull). The NANO is the stock MPH and a true example of a 21st century modern thruster. It is a user friendly all around board but a radical performer with free flowing speed and a very natural controlled ride. Effortlessly fast and loose, yet predictable and drivey, the NANO ticks all the boxes. The rider really feels as though they can pull off any maneuver and it rides with a very pure sensation of flow.
The NANO features a clean, foiled shape, a wide point forward of center, a round nose for smooth turns and a wide chopped tail with soft corners for exceptional speed and glide. The straight rail line through the back end of the board will provide the necessary control through turns. The Nano has a surprising range with good edge control in bigger punchy waves.
Ride this one in the middle to the performance end of your preferred volume range in thigh to slightly overhead surf. Ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers.’
What people are saying about it:
“An impressive addition to the Firewire Surfboards roster, the Firewire Nano is a competent all-rounder that has the control and hold of a high performance shortboard with the release, liveliness and maneuverability of a small wave board. The Nano is a really cool, different design.” – Compare Surfboards
“So far I have had only two surfs on this board with about 20 waves ridden. Generally the waves have been waist to chest high and soft, really not what I planned on riding this board in. I will say that I am happy with the board so far.” – user 360air on firewiresurfboards.com
“The Firewire Nano is a magic little board suitable for a wide variety of surfers. Almost the holy grail of surfboards with superb wave catching ability, amazing hold and maneuverability, and breath taking speed and flow.” – BoardShop
“Fastest board I’ve ever ridden is the Nano for sure! I’ll probably buy one this week.” – user Cyan Sanderco on YouTube
“The Firewire Tomo Nano has a ton of range and will handle the good days when the waves start to get punchy. Still incorporating Tomo’s theories on parallel-railed efficiency, the Nano uses a more pulled in, rounded nose that can handle steep drops and putting it on a rail. The super fast and efficient Nano will be fun in mediocre to average surf, however this board is ready for the bigger days and can also take to the air.” – Real Watersports
