Firewire Tomo Vanguard for Sale

Post by Cpt.Caveman » Fri Aug 29, 2014 8:36 am

Hello People!

I have a second hand Firewire Tomo Vanguard for sale. Its 5'6" x 18 1/2" x 2 3/8" 28.8L in the white RapidFire construction. Thats the EPS/Epoxy with carbon rods along the rails.

Got it second hand while experimenting with the modern simmons idea, but it was just not enough volume for my 93kg and now my new twinzer is working a lot better for me. I could still paddle into waves and paddle around the lineup, but it was little unforgiving catching fatter or smaller waves at that volume.

Its an incredible board to be honest. One of the better modern alternative performance boards I've ridden. It would suit someone who likes performance/fish hybrids as an everyday board, or it would suit as a smaller wave board for someone who likes high performance boards. The parallel outline creates a lot more flow and float than usual, so it'll paddle deceivingly well for its volume, and it'll keep its speed and flow very easily in all wave types. I never tried it as a quad because its fast enough as a thruster. It also surfs very responsively, completely differently to how it looks.

It handles waves from 2ft to well overhead very easily and it'll suit someone roughly in the 80-90kg range I'd say.

I'm in the Sydney area and surf the Northern and Eastern beaches regularly depending on work hours. I can put it in the car and you're welcome to come and have a look, even meet up for a surf and try it out first.

I'm asking $300. Reason being its had a fin plug repaired professionally by Craig at Splash Ding Repairs, so technically its not in the same condition I bought it. Otherwise is in very good condition with only some minor deck depressions and some very small cosmetic dings which were also professionally fixed.

Don I know you're not in Sydney, but if it's gone, there's one for sale at Wicks surf shop at Collaroy. I can have a closer look at it for you if you like. Check dims, condition etc.
