The Tomo boards are totally awesome and has set new industry standards, opening the eyes towards other shapes than classicly outlined curvy surfboards...but of course you can always make something really good even better with the proper approach and knowledge!
Me and a bunch of my friends (including several of the best kite-wave riders in Denmark) have made several iterations of boards from the original Tomo Vanguard and Vader shapes towards something that works even better with kite in especially Denmark where it is always super windy when we have waves, with more appropriate bottom contours, rocker and fin location - And we have tested directly agains the original Tomo shapes Vader and Vanguard, swapping several times during a session (Tomo = kite versions) and after testing them up agains each other we figured out we were on track with something that was feeling even better (a tad better flex in the constrution and more smooth riding through chop and uneven surface due to the bottom contours that breaks the water surface tension in the front section of the board)
We have also worked with deck-concaves and thinner profiles, it works extremely well but is a bit more tough to make strong enough due to the extra flex..
No plans of selling producs, just to gain knowledge and have absolutely awesome boards available always for the conditions we have around
I could no problem ride the boards we have made so far for the rest of my life, given they could last that long which is not very likely (I´m a board abuser)
Can´t wait to see how these "square" shapes will make surfing with a kite even more fun
