This shape is a hybrid of the Sci-Fi and Omni models so obvious, you can almost imagine the two boards combining naturally one night with Tomo away from the shaping bay.
Fans of the Sci-Fi will immediately notice Tomo’s double bat tail. Much of the Sci-Fi’s popularity in 2016 and 2017 has been this tail design coupled with Tomo’s Quad Inside Single Concave.
Functionally, the marriage of these two design elements has been brilliant – the double bat adding much needed grip to the wave’s face, offsetting the extreme lift and speed created by the Quad Inside Single Concave.
By melding these elements with the reduced swing weight of the Omni’s nose, Daniel Tomson has created an evolved version of both boards that surfs most similarly to the Sci-Fi but with slightly more rocker, and an increased ease of use in waves 1 to 5 feet.

This board being epoxy I’d never ridden one after riding this on a lot of different swells east coast riding the fcs mark richards set up when over waist high rode with MR stabilizer thruster. If you wanna go fast and do big carving turns this is it. Floaters and rebounds effortlessly. Overall fast and Carvy and great in hollow waves. Only thing I didn’t like not much release when trying reversals. Small wave twin set up though it does it.
Great board, perfect cruiser for an old school guy

This was my first board in about 20 years, with all of my past boards being double kick. I wanted something to cruise around the neighborhood with, but I wasn’t quite ready to give up a tail. This is the perfect balance. Good, soft wheels, and fast bearings make it a quick cruiser that’s easy to ride.
And as always, Surf City was super helpful in making the decision!
