Tomo SKX 5' 8"
- Volume Suggestion
The SKX is Stuart Kennedy’s go to all-round shortboard for the 2017 season. Designed from a Sci-Fi foundation with a pulled in squash tail, the SKX is Stu’s board of choice for tricky contest conditions, such as variable beach breaks or choppy water where the Sci-Fi may red-line due to excess speed and lift from the wide tail block.
The SKX features a compact outline with an even volume distribution and rocker that hints slightly to the lower end of the general wave spectrum. Combined with the Trademark Tomo (QISC) ‘Quad-Inside-Single-Concave’, the SKX has instant ‘get up and go’ and incredible responsiveness that compliments a dynamic wave attack.

Due to its loose and highly responsive ride characteristics, the SKX should be ridden with a slightly higher volume compared to your regular shortboard (e.g. + 0.5L to 1.0L)
Stuart Kennedy's dimensions are the same as the stock 5’ 8" version. Stu is 5’ 9" and weighs about 160 pounds (73 kg), so if you’re a good surfer, you can plan on surfing the SKX at about your height or an inch shorter. But the relatively narrow outline of the SKX (without much width placed forward of the boards center-point) will let you get away with surfing it up to about 2 inches longer than your height if needed, to get the volume you want.
