If we had to distill The Omni into three words it would be this: easy to surf.
The Omni takes modern functional aesthetics to new places with a clean and minimalistic meeting of Kellys performance round tails and Tomo's modern planing hull designs.
Available in Firewire's Linear flex Technology (LFT). LFT incorporates Firewire’s SPRINGER HD, a 0.75" (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centerline of the board, representing the next generation in SPRINGER technology. The SPRINGER HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail.
We’ve watched this shape earn a dedicated base of surfers who vary in skill level from beginner to advanced. And we’ve noticed how easy it is to size this board correctly, no matter what length feels right. Some like it a few inches shorter than they are tall. Others get it long and ride it as a mid-length.
The Omni carries width and thickness far forward into the board and balances it out by eliminating the more traditional ‘pointy’ nose. What’s left is an easy paddler with a pulled in tail that can be fun to surf from three foot beach break to ten foot reef break. And after watching Kelly’s example, it’s clear it works well at the Surf Ranch in Lemoore.
