Firewire FST Nano surfboard 5ft 8 FCS II - White
The Firewire Nano Tomo surfboard is the original Modern Planing Hull (MPH) which is championed by Daniel Thomson and is described as a "user friendly all rounder". The MPH is all about top end speed. The more speed you can generate, the more radical the performance potential can becomes. The MPH Tomo focuses on is closely akin to the hydro plane theory behind wake and kite boards. Tomo himself says "I am convinced that the modern planing hull design will allow surfers to experience higher levels of personal performance. I also strongly believe that the MPH design will provide a platform for top professional surfers to take surfing to newlevels of ‘Ultra high performance’. A design capable of executing the aerial manoeuvres only attempted in the skate,snowboard and wake disciplines, whilst still excelling onwave face with incredible speed, flow and power. The fundamentals of all true performance surfing".
The Nano surfs fast and loose but is also controllable. It is a free flowing board which will work in a whole variety of conditions. The wave range that the nano works in is from thigh high to just overhead depending on the rider's ability, but it loves punchy waves too! Tomo's shapes are the just about the most innovative in the world right now and the one thing his boards guarantee is fun. So who is going to surf the Nano? The answer is anybody, you can choose how it rides, you can push it hard and its a high perfromance board, or you can choose to cruise, you decide. Its like a dream car that is fine round town, easy to drive but when on the track perfroms like a racing car. Your wave count is going to be through the roof and your wife/girlfriend is going to hate this board!
The tech of FST Firewires is based around the rapid response flex memory in the Future Shapes Technology which yields great speed through the turns whilst the parabolic rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years. Firewire surfboards feature some very distinct construction traits that set them aside form other boards currently available: 1) parabolic balsa rails 2) dual density EPS and advanced composite core The parabolic balsa rails flex at the start of a turn storing energy and rebound through the turn releasing built up energy in the form of speed. The spring back of the parabolic rails to the original rocker triggers rapid acceleration, like an arrow shot from a bow. The construction materials, a unique formulation of hi-tech epoxy resins and advanced composites mean that these boards maintain the lively feel you get with brand new polyurethane boards, but are up to 20% lighter and will last 5+ times longer. This manufacturing process has won environmental awards and has created a range of lightweight and durable custom boards that are quickly being recognised for their awesome performance. The nature of the core technology in these boards allows them to rebound in and out of turns with little loss of speed.
