Firewire Surfboards build eco-friendly epoxy surfboards, giving  greater compression strength, and are lighter in weight.

DOMINATOR

Perhaps the most versatile board in the Firewire quiver to date, the DOMINATOR combines a full outline with a thick foil from nose to tail and a 5-fin setup. The wide point is moved back to reduce the nose profile, maintaining all of the speed but with none of the drawbacks of retro nose outlines. Built with the flex characteristics and lightweight of FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY (FST), the DOMINATOR paddles like its turbo charged and is way lighter than other PU boards with similar dimensions.

BAKED POTATO

The BAKED POTATO offers the small wave performance that you want when the waves aren’t exactly pumping but you’ll do anything to get in the water. With 5-fin setup, a pulled in nose and less rail volume compared to similar boards, the BAKED POTATO allows for even faster rail to rail transfers. The BAKED POTATO has aggressive double concaves and ‘V-spline’ running down the centre of the board which allows the board to get up on the rail much faster than the overall design would indicate. Primarily designed for smaller, weaker conditions, the BAKED POTATO will surprise you by its performance characteristics, and how the quad fins set further back and closer to the rail than usual, allow the board to hold without sliding, even in larger surf.

POTATO-NATOR

As the name implies, the POTATO-NATOR is the result of the splicing of the BAKED POTATO and the DOMINATOR. With a longer rail line and less girth than the BAKED POTATO, and a slightly pulled in nose similar to the DOMINATOR, the POTATO-NATOR is meant to be ridden 4″-6″ longer than a POTATO, and approx. 2″ shorter than the DOMINATOR. The double concaves are softer than the BAKED POTATO and while the overall rocker has been increased slightly to enhance performance, the low entry rocker is still there making paddling a breeze. Designed primarily for weaker surf, the POTATO-NATOR will hold its own in larger waves as well.

GREEDY BEAVER

The GREEDY BEAVER has a real shortboard feel with a compressed longboard outline, a true crossover board with mid-length retro glide and shortboard manoeuvrability. Put it on rail while engaging the single to double concave, step on the rounded pin tail and it surfs like a shortboard in the pocket. Or take advantage of the single to double concave and large planing surface to trim effortlessly over dead sections. The bevelled rail reduces the overall thickness, adding performance including quick direction changes. Raise your wave count every session with the paddle power of the Greedy Beaver while turning on a dime as you thread your way down the line.

PYZALEIN

The PYZALIEN is a great all-around performance board, designed to keep speed and flow in weaker conditions, while feeling lively and loose in all types of waves. The fuller outline, wider tail and slightly wider, flatter nose help to produce speed and drive, and make it a fast and easy paddler. It has a lot of curve through the tail rocker, and that, combined with the single to double concave running into a nice bit of VEE at the tail keep it snappy yet controlled when you put it on rail. A great board for a wide range of waves and conditions, the PYZALIEN feels just as good in waist-high slop as it does in overhead juice and will help you get the most out of your everyday sessions. For more advanced surfers we recommend you ride this board around your height or 1¹” below.

THE SLAB

THE SLAB by Pyzel represents John John Florence’s ideas refined into his perfect free surfing model. John John wanted 3 inches off the nose of his normal shortboard and an increased tail rocker. This resulted in a fuller nose, fatter top section and an extremely high performance fun board that goes well in a range of conditions.

THE SCI-FI

The SCI-FI is a mash up of classic curves and modern rocker served with a futuristic twist of fluid dynamic principles likely found in the design archives of Bruce Wayne. Expect seemingly unnatural acceleration, instantaneous response and an all-around level performance that can only be described as electric. The SCI-FI is a high performance all-rounder with impressive wave range and usability for intermediate to advanced surfers. 5-fin setup.

THE OMNI

The OMNI takes modern functional aesthetics to new places with a clean and minimalistic meeting of Kelly’s performance round tails and Tomo’s Modern Planing Hull (MPH) designs. The Omni will revel in smaller waves but still keeps with it the smooth and extremely radical performance capability for bigger stuff. Suited to intermediate to advanced riders. 5-fin setup.

VADER

The VADER represents the pinnacle of Daniel ‘Tomo’ Thomson’s Modern Planing Hull (MPH) Vision. Dan describes the Vader as a Mind Surfing Machine, which reacts instantaneously to desired directional changes with incredible bursts of speed. Controlled, drawn out carves and radical tight angle snaps are achievable with an effortless and intuitive shift in a surfer’s weight. In addition, paddle power and generally usability have been increased with a larger volume distribution throughout compared to earlier Tomo models, which encourages surfers to ride the Vader even shorter than previously considered functional. The Vader ticks all the boxes and is a stand out performer from waist high to double overhead, offering a natural Quad-fin option which creates significantly increased speed in weaker conditions, or switch to thruster for a high-speed surgical attack when the waves demand additional control.

EVO

EVO (Evolution) is a new take on the MPH design, utilizing softer features and more outline curve to encourage a smoother transition and a more ‘in the pocket’ line of attack. With a wider central wide point comparative to the Vader, the EVO should be considered favourable in smaller, weaker waves. However like most Tomo MPH Designs, the EVO will still be quite functional in overhead conditions. Maintaining an almost symmetrical outline and a completely unique and highly innovative ‘Double inside single concave into split quad concave’ planing hull, the EVO feels as if it’s almost levitating on top of the water. Yet once on rail, it has precise rail sensitivity and hold. The EVO should be ridden as short as possible with user friendly volumes packed into the shortest sizings yet offered by Tomo.
