Firewire Tomo Revo Ibolic Surfboard
The REVO is the latest update to the now famous, TOMO EVO. Featuring Vee Quad Concave (VQC)The cutting edge in performance hull design’. Vee Quad Concave (VQC) combines the exceptional maneuverability and rail-to-rail transitions of a vee hull with the lift and response of quad concave to provide the most unique, high performance surfing experience we have ever offered! The higher lift-to-drag coefficient allows for easy wave catching and speedy transitions while maintaining a controlled feel attributed to the balanced ‘rectangular’ template of the Modern Planing Hul (MPH). The REVO has a more refined outline curve and a higher rocker to its predecessor, allowing this design to perform more radical lines closer to the pocket of the wave. A fantastic quad fin design as the “deep central spine’ of the vee provides plenty of directional control. The design can still be ridden as a thruster, though it is recommended to use a smaller rear fin – or a 2+1 setup.

About Ibolic Technology:
Firewire has spent the past year innovating newer, better construction processes for its wide range of boards—which is pretty impressive, since it already led the industry in futuristic tech. The latest option is the Ibolic Construction, which replaces the LFT construction.
Ibolic was designed around the fact that many of Firewire’s more futuristic shapes had pretty complex bottom contours, particularly the vee quad concave bottom used on many of Tomo’s boards. This “performance hull” contour is quite involved and is difficult to glass with a bottom skin, which was the typical process used for the LFT boards.
To address this, Firewire developed the Ibolic construction, which features parabolic high-density foam rails and a foam I-beam down the middle to create the central spine that provides the foundation for a pronounced vee.
This results in a build that is 35 percent stronger than LFT and more strength in the rails (which results in a lively flex, similar to the Helium build), but without sacrificing the LFT’s feel and performance that so many surfers have come to love. The Ibolic still uses a single skin on the deck, providing a strong, durable platform from which to do your best surfing.
About Slater Designs:
“I’m not sure if the perfect board really exists, but I’m enjoying the freedom to collaborate with some of surfing’s most innovative shapers and designers.
It is a quest to create something different in a slightly different way that appeals to where I want to go on a wave. Discovering a new feeling under my feet, drawing a new line, or taking a completely different track on a wave is something I never stop dreaming about.
Now being able share and grow that idea with others is what keeps surfing fun for me.”
