After years of refinement by Tomo, the Hydronaut has now been released in collaboration with Firewire as a step-up surfboard designed for big, powerful waves.

Designed to make surfing big waves that little bit easier, the Hydronaut is the result of years of work and refinement from Tomo in shaping the ultimate powerful wave vehicle.

The template is elliptical, with the wide point forward of centre, and a tight radius "torpedo" nose profile. This torpedo nose is Tomo's methos of gaining maneuverability in big waves.   In Tomo's words, the torpedo nose gives the surfer a "safer feeling in critical situations because of the way it enhances the quickness of direction changes when maneuvers are made at high speed”.

This board has been tested by Tomo and Stu Kennedy everywhere from Black's to Baja Malibu to Hawaii.

Together these two have brought Tomo’s big wave philosophies to the masses for the first time with the Hydronaut, and we’re anticipating an elevated level of performance surfing on big waves in 2018. We’re also excited for average surfers to find that this shape can do the simple stuff easily: Drop in. Pull in. Spit out. Kick out.

LFT - Linear Flex Technology - A fibreglass and epoxy sandwich with an EPS core and Firewire's new Springer HD...  a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centre-line of the board, representing the next generation in their 'Springer' technology. Unlike the original balsa Springer build, which only added stiffness under the front foot, the Springer HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail.
