Introducing Tomo SKX

Written by SMAS Community

Stuart Kennedy // SKX // Steve Sherman

"My philosophy with a lot of my designs is that at ground level, every board should work well in crappy conditions. The SKX also works well in the conditions I designed it for, which is more of an unruly ocean where a planning hull, a wide tail, might be too much lift and speed. With the SKX, the channel out the squash tail will give a little more control in those situations." – Daniel Thomson.

It felt like it had a good, continuous flex; it wasn’t a short, snappy twinge of a flex, it was a good, drawn-out, drivey flex..." — Taj Burrow

Daniel Thomson on the Nano

Departing from "normal" surfboards in most aspects. Thomson's designs nevertheless trace their lineage to the earliest advances in modern equipment from Bob Simmons in the '40s and '50s, to Greenough's extensive work on fin design, and Steve Lis' fish. A natural collaboration with Richard Kenvin in the ongoing Hydrodynamica project has resulted in the planing hull reaching its logical extreme. Tom Curren said that Daniel Thomson has "opened the door for a design push"

The feature takes us through the details of Daniel Thomson's unorthodox, yet strangely functional, epoxy machines.
