Firewire FST Evo Kiteboard 5ft 1 Futures - White
The Firewire Evo is a well-balanced kiteboard suitable for any level of rider in conditions ranging from 3 to 6ft.
With a wider center point compared to the Vader, the Evo works brilliantly at creating lift and that magical smooth feeling of levitating above the water. The board packs plenty of float and in the larger sizes will solve the "bigger rider/light wind" conundrum.
This extra buoyancy is achieved with the Evo’s almost symmetrical outline and the drivey bottom contours that act as the engine by incorporating an innovative double inside single concave into split quad concave planing hull.
Ride the EVO as short as possible; with user friendly volumes packed into the shortest MPH sizing yet offered by Tomo!
Firewire's kiteboard line-up is derived from the exact same elite surfboard designs and reinforced to withstand the extra punishment of kitesurfing. Regardless if you choose our proven Futures Shapes Technology (FST) or beautiful TimberTek wood skin construction, our craftsmanship and quality is second to none as FireWire produces every board from its own factory. We pluck the very best of these shapes for our kiteboard lineup. Boards that are guaranteed to work well for kiteboarding keeping upwind capability and high performance manoeuvrability in mind.
Every FireWire board is built with the environment in mind as we strive to minimize environmental impact through use of Paulownia wood skin decks, recyclable EPS cores and Entropy bio resins that utilize renewable plant carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emission by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies.
Give a FireWire kiteboard a ride and you will quickly understand how decades of surf design can elevate your kitesurfing!

Overall Customer Rating
Andy (reviewed 03/05/2017)
On the water it took a short while to find the Evo's sweetspot (more down to my general level of experience and first time on an MPH board) but tracks a high line upwind and smoothes out the usual UK chop and messy onshore conditions really well. It is extremely comfortable to just ride and cruise around on. As for carving with the kite I was initially concerned the volume and width would mean lack of bite, grip and control in the higher speed turns - I was wrong, the more you throw at the Evo, the more it takes.
On the waves (even if only wind chop and small shore breaks) it's brilliant. My surfing ability needs improvement, so look at the Evo surfboard reviews for how it really performs in the waves, but I come off the water smiling every time!
Overall...it's primarily designed as a surfboard to be ridden in typical U.K. conditions and as a Kitesurf board it performs in open water too. I improve every time I ride the Evo and always come off the water smiling...what more could you want - buy one, you won't regret it!!
