Man, I just saw a few Tomos at the Wetsand store in Ventura.
What a crazy looking board, tiny and light as hell.
Such a departure from the norm, warrants a test drive when FW has the versions out.
One will def find its way into my quiver.
Well that sounds intersting!!! 8" shorter than your normal shortboard..., we are stepping into potato turf!!!
That's 8" shorter than standing height...still think 5'6" is as short as I'll go even though by that measure I'm looking at 5'4" but the width and thickness seem a bit too ambitious to me. Whoever gets one of these first at your local beach is going to attract a lot of attention...kind of makes me think I'd like to ride it a few times away from everyone until I can surf it. From what Stu Kennedy said there were some adjustments to make to technique.
Yea turning up with a potato was bad enough
Looks like one of those boards that you would have to Demo or take experienced advice on what size to select
Do you think it's worth comparing volumes from other boards in your quiver or completely disregarding that train of thought when choosing a vanguard
Yeah that's what I'm looking into. Mark's proto was different dims. Looks like these will be ridden a little longer.
Chris said Tomo and Stirling were both on the 504. That puts me at least a size up!
I guess at the end of the day volume is still volume and you still have to paddle it
At 80 kg I'd be putting myself on a 5'6
Tom Curren's Tomo Vanguard, 5'1" x 17 1/4" x 2 1/8"
Im guessing that Curren would weigh in from 75kg to 80kg and be super fit
And on a 5'1
Where would that leave someone that's not so superhuman
As lost as ever ha ha
