Firewire V4 Surfboard Description: Incorporating Tomo’s Modern Planing Hull (MPH), the V4 was born through an ongoing quest to gain more speed and stability in the modern short board without compromising responsiveness and directional control. The V4 maintains a considerably narrow, forward of center wide-point and straightened rail line to emphasize the classic ‘Tomo post-modern Hydrofoil curve’, and includes a 5/4/3 fin option. In a variation of the Vanguard’s hull, the V4’s bottom contours feature a double barrel concave through the center of the tail for lift and speed. Small side bite channels were added off the rail for precise bite and control during turns. The V4’s clean outline, bottom contours and foil will provide excellent speed and lift in small surf yet will have incredible hold and control when the surf is overhead.
