Nano Planning Hull. 2013 was a big year for Firewire and Daniel Thomson, of Tomo Surfboards, and 2014 looks to be the same.
The 2014 Nano plays off the strength of the Modern Planing Hull (MPH) seen in the Vanguard and has a clean, foiled shape that allows for a smooth and effortless ride.
With a wide and rounded square tail, the NANO offers exceptional speed while the orientation and shape of the rails offer reliable edge control in steep sections.
The original MPH (Modern Planing Hull). The NANO is the stock MPH and a true example of a 21st century modern thruster. It is a user friendly all around board but a radical performer with free flowing speed and a very natural controlled ride. Effortlessly fast and loose, yet predictable and drivey, the NANO ticks all the boxes. The rider really feels as though they can pull off any maneuver and it rides with a very pure sensation of flow.
The NANO features a clean, foiled shape, a wide point forward of center, a round nose for smooth turns and a wide chopped tail with soft corners for exceptional speed and glide. The straight rail line through the back end of the board will provide the necessary control through turns. The Nano has a surprising range with good edge control in bigger punchy waves.
Ride this one in the middle to the performance end of your preferred volume range in thigh to slightly overhead surf. Ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers.
