The Firewire EVO (Evolution) surfboard designed by Tomo is a new take on the MPH design, utilizing softer features and more outline curve to encourage a smoother transitions and a more 'in the pocket' line of attack. A wider central wide point comparative to the Vader, the EVO should be considered favorable to smaller weaker waves, however like most Tomo MPH Designs, the EVO will still be quite functional in overhead waves 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 the water! Yet once on rail, it has a precise rail sensitivity and hold. The EVO should be ridden as short as possible with user friendly volumes packed into the shortest MPH sizings yet offered by Tomo.About Firewire Helium Technology:
After years of scouring the composites world (and countless dead-ends along the way) Firewire has finally managed to develop an alternative sandwich skin material to the existing FST build. HELIUM combines this new composite with a redesigned parabolic wood rail that includes both Balsa and Paulownia woods. The end result is that HELIUM is even lighter than FST, a slightly faster flex and rebound characteristic, as well as a higher breakpoint. This represents an almost impossible combination of improvements over FST, as in most cases, a significant weight reduction over an already light technology (FST) leads to a lower break point.
