The El Tomo fish is a redux of the classic Tomo Fighter Jet Fish. This time with a dedicated quad-fin set up, for maximum versatility.
It is designed to excel in the smaller end of the wave range, when conditions lack power and require some extra inspiration.
It features a classic, performance fish outline spliced with the trademark Tomo multi-concave hull design which results in smooth, speedy transitions. High-performance moments are on tap due to the freely releasing, bump wing to double-diamond tail profile.
With a generous volume range and low rocker similar to the Evo, the El Tomo is fast and stable, suitable to most ability levels without comprising the performance characteristics that we expect from a Tomo design.
Volcanic Tech is made from Basalt Fibers Extruded from Volcanic Rocks that are crushed, melted and extruded into woven fibers that make up the cloth. The manufacture of basalt fiber requires the melting of the crushed and washed basalt rock at about 1,500 °C (2,730 °F). The molten rock is then extruded through small nozzles to produce continuous filaments of basalt fiber. Those filaments are then chopped into long stem fibers and woven into lamination cloth fiber. The cloth has similar characteristics to carbon as it relates to strength and weight however because the fibers are derived from Organic Raw materials, when combined with Bio Resins it serves as better degradable ECO alternative than using traditional carbon fiber cloth.
The cloth can withstand high temperatures unlike carbon fiber and as a result is heavily used the Aerospace industry in the creation of rockets and and jet engines. The elasticity characteristics of this fiber is higher than that of traditional Carbon fiber allowing the board to have more flex for a natural feel under foot.
