His 1st one sold 2 hours after I gave it to him... Hope he keeps this one just a little longer...

Nice rob, quad? Like the mal-like outline of the nose. Very interesting.

thanks guys.

this one's a quad. I don't even bother with 3 fins on these, but that's just me. As more says, there's way too much area in the tail for a 3 fin to try and control. Quads are the std on them at the moment, super versatile, and the most popular with customers.

making a few this month, going back to the keel + canard formula i started with. sounds weird, looks weirder, but works really really well..

a local fella who now runs a growing surf mag did a review on one of those and cut up his leg really bad, a lethal looking bit of gear...interesting though, I'd try one out if had the chance.....

Stu Kennedy's quiver of Tomo's for the US Open. I love he's riding stuff that looks like this in a 'real' surf contest, and I love he's do well so far.

More, that board a couple of posts up looks like an absolute funbucket, what's the fin setup on it?

That Bat-Sim is a quad with tail fin option as well, been riding them with Nubbin and lovin them....

Image


If Stu Kennedy is riding them in real comps, ( the very different Tomo shapes I mean ) good to see...I like that alot... I ride a few pretty odd shapes in comps and judges dont usually appreciate it...
but if the surfings good, they have to come around eventually...

"We have a single fin beachbreak design that works very well in small to medium surf..." - interesting that this seems to be the opposite to some peoples current opinion of the pintail, single fin design that needs a punchy, point break to work. Changes in standards and surfing or thought fad?
