The Firewire LFT SKX was designed to thrive in thigh-high to head-high punchy waves, but has earned a rep for ripping in bumpy onshore conditions.

Product Details

The Firewire SKX in LFT technology surfboard is the first regular looking "traditional" shortboard from Tomo. A pretty standard nose outline along with a thumb/squash tail are teamed with Tomo's signature planing hull and an innovative quad inside single concave bottom contour.

The SKX has become Stu Kennedy's go-to contest shortboard when the conditions are a little shy of perfect.

The board performs with immediate responsiveness, bags of lift and drive from the planing hull and would suit an aggressive surfer who favours a carving style coupled with an aerial assault.

The Firewire LFT SKX was designed to thrive in thigh-high to head-high punchy waves, but has earned a rep for ripping in bumpy onshore conditions where linking snappy radical turns in chop is required.

Linear Flex Technology or LFT has replaced the Rapidfire internal carbon rods with an 18mm wide composite Springer stringer 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.

Tomo SKX
Board is great but I new that was going to be the case, what I wasn’t expecteing was the brilliant customer service I received! Really friendly, helpful team, they made my purchase hassle free, I will be coming back for more for sure!
Great job guys!
Tomo SKX 5’11
Overall a great experience. I’ve bought several boards from these guys over the years and never had any issues. I traded in an old board and the process was very easy and straighforward. Ian was very helpful and provided a clear guidance on the process setting out the terms right at the start. A great open and honest service. Summer heatwave was not a great time to buy a short board though as currently in the longest flat spell ever.
Excellent board
Used this board for the first time in choppy 3-4 foot conditions and I was blown away! It paddles very well (I'm 5'11, 67kg) and catches waves easily. Once up it feels very similar to the Vader in speed but this board also makes you feel like you're floating higher than normal on the wave and is so light it doesn't feel like there is much under your feet, but still it was so easy to attack the wave even in very choppy conditions and it never bogged once. Was torn between this and the sci fi but so glad I went for the SKX. Do yourself a favour and get one
Proper fast shortboard
Having had a Dominator as a travel board for a few years, I wanted something a bit more performance driven, because in punchy, steep waves the D’s rails and thickness made the board hard to control (it was a 6’0”/34.9l).

Changing to a 6’1”/32.9l SKX has been a great move so far. Thinner rails, a bit more rail line and a bit more rocker make this a lot more responsive and easier to use in the steeper parts of the wave. The board feels really quick, too - it’s my first Tomo shape and I’m enjoying it a lot.

No chance to try this in big waves yet; I’m not sure how it will handle that, but it’s not really what I bought it for anyway, so...
Excellent board and service
Just wanted to say great service again at boardshop. The SKX is a really nice and easy board to surf. Loved the sci fi and still is my favourite, but the SKX is better in smaller waves and is very fast and loose. A great uk surfboard.

it’s the fastest thing I’ve been on that’s for sure
Went down and surfed Fistral at the weekend the skx board is so lively.
The surf was big ....right on the limit of what that board could handle.
But it’s the fastest thing I’ve been on that’s for sure .
It just wants you to use that speed up all the time .
great board
Great board, great service.

Overall perfect
