The head turning Firewire Evo LFT Surfboard is a fast ride that'll take your surfing to new and exciting places. Designed utilizing the Modern Planing Hull concept popularized by Tomo shaper Daniel Thomson, the Evo has softer features and more outline curve to encourage 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.
Grom boards available at special pricing.

CONSTRUCTION LFT Bamboo Construction
Linear Flex Technology
Firewire's Linear Flex Technology construction incorporates a bamboo deckskin into their proven sandwich EPS construction methodology as well as the Springer HD, a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the center-line of the board, representing the next generation in Firewire's Springer technology. Though Linear Flex Technology may appear to be a simple construction employing familiar design philosophies found in traditionally built surfboards, nothing could be further from the truth. The Springer HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail. The end result is a durable surfboard with lively flex patterns that will maintain its hi-performance characteristics over time.

- Firewire Surfboards Evo LFT only board I want to rideReview by Jay Jay
RatingThe Evo is such a incredibly fun board. As long as it has the right wave type with push it excels like something else. I can't put it down and it is the only board I want to ride. It dosen't slide out contrary to the wideness and holds marvelously in the face of a wave. It likes a steeper faced wave and thats when it really comes alive. Turns on less than a dime, quicker than anything Ive ridden. It is quite intuitive in that when you choose to move on a wave and evan if its out of your skill range this board allows it to happen. It has enhanced my skills and my fun level. Size it small. The volume is plenty. Gets into waves fine, is quick and incredibly nimble. Get one and be excited for a whole new refresher to your surfing.(Posted on 4/14/2016) 2016-04-14
- Firewire Surfboards Evo LFT Makes most of your quiver obsoleteReview by Rouleur Rouleur
RatingAfter owning literally hundreds of boards over the years I can honestly say that this board will make most of your boards obsolete. At first I surfed it as a thruster but after setting it up as a quad I will never change the fin set-up. The board is very fast and responsive, you can control the speed and put it where you want it to go and does just as well when the waves are hollow. Size it much smaller than normal, don't worry, you will get used to it quickly.The only problem is all of my friends want to borrow it.(Posted on 1/5/2016) 2016-01-05
- Firewire Surfboards Evo LFT Stunning RocketReview by BH BH
RatingThe board flies. 0-60 mph in under a second. Not only is it fast but you can surf it almost straight up and down. Extremely responsive, round house wrap arounds are like a hot knife through butter. Ridden it 5 times in waist to head high waves. I'm 6' 180lbs. I'm riding a 5'7" Evo. I'd have gone 5'6" if I wasn't wearing a 4/3 or 5/4/3 with hood and booties. Only tried the thruster fin set up. Get one!(Posted on 8/25/2015) 2015-08-25
