This is our pick from Firewire's new range.

With its slim outline and crazy Tomo concave we think the SKX is going to get along great with the Indian Ocean, in particular the South West!

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. Volume suggestion: the SKX should be rid - den slightly higher volumed due to the loose and highly responsive ride characteristics. (e.g. + 0.5 to 1.0L) 

The boards are going to be landing in store next week so get your orders in ASAP if you think the SKX is for you!
