Firewire Partners Up with Tomo Surfboards

Firewire, one of the most renowned brands in surfboard industry, has just signed a design partnership with Tomo Surfboards. Tomo Surfboards is founded and operated by Daniel Thomson, a skilled surfboard designer and talented professional free surfer from Australia. Daniel Thomson shaped his first board years ago, in his teens, and he is now determined to reinvent the modern surfboard. His innovative ideas about the design of surfboards are definitely going to make a change in surfing world in the near future. And the partnership with Firewire will definitely help him do that.

Mark Price, Firewire CEO, said: “I first noticed Daniel’s designs at Sacred Craft and I was intrigued. After reaching out to Daniel and meeting with him, I was struck by his obvious intelligence and humility, and his absolute dedication to pushing the envelope through shape and materials – qualities that perfectly matched our own goals. And that was before I even rode one of his boards. After stepping onto one of his designs, working together was a no brainer.”

Daniel is also proud to be working with the Firewire team: “I am really excited about the opportunity to work with Firewire, who stand out in my mind as a company dedicated to evolving the sport through technological and design advancements. I have always believed that surfboard design and technology will eventually evolve to take surfing to new places, so I have always tried to be involved in innovation in that regard. It is awesome that Firewire has seen such potential in my work and I am really looking forward to the results of this partnership.”
