Product Details

The Firewire LFT Nano surfboard by Daniel 'Tomo' Thomson from the Firewire range for 2014. It might be the best board in the world! This version of the board is in the NEW Linear Flex Technology (LFT) construction.
The Firewire Nano Tomo 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 key concept that the MPH 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. 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 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 performance 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 new Linear Flex Technology (LFT) replaces the Rapidfire internal carbon rods with an 18mm wide composite Springer HD Suspension System that runs from nose to tail and includes a top-deck sheet to improve compression resistance. This high density insert creates additional strength through the centre with increased flex through the tail. The EPS top sheet buffer above the HD Springer allows for some compression but without the raised ridge and cracking that can occur with traditional wooden stringer surfboards. LFT delivers plenty of 'TWANG' in and out of your turns and creates the fast-twitch flex response that gives the surfer the feedback and return desired.
LFT at last brings the perfect blend of a brand-new traditional PU 'board feel' with the added durability of modern sandwich construction.

I bought a 5'9" Nano after demoing a couple of other Tomo's. I initially tried a 5'10" Vanguard which was too big for me, I'm 6'0" 90Kg, and it went great on my backhand where I surf off my back foot but not so good on my forehand. Next I tried the 5'8" Nano which was brilliant, a very fast easy to surf board which maintained its speed through turns very well. But I felt was quite hard work paddling around the line-up. I settled on the 5'9" which has a touch more volume, and will compensate for winter wetsuit, boots, gloves to some degree. The board arrived the day after ordering and was very well packaged. I got to ride it on the first weekend of December in large, chunky surf at Watergate and it went very well. Then had a really good surf the next day in slightly overhead surf at Polzeath and again it went amazingly well. The board seems to pick up and maintain speed through turns, which makes everything else easy.
