NANO _ALLROUND WAVE

The Nano is compact, so it can fit tight in the pocket of any wave and carve hard. The combination of the parallel outline
and channel bottom delivers instant acceleration, grip, and tight radius turning.
Sizes from 87 up have been re-designed to deliver earlier planing and higher speed. All Nano’s are now exclusively quad fins setups, saving the weight of a 5th finbox and best complimenting the board’s characteristics.
Inspired by Tomo’s new-school surfboards, the Nano is a fresh wavesailing sensation.
Its parallel rails mean the width is narrower than on a traditional board, which makes it feel like you’re sailing a smaller board. The efficiency of the parallel rails means you’re up and planing as if you were riding a bigger board.
Initially conceived as a small wave, onshore biased design, the Nano proved to be so much more:

/ INCREDIBLY VERSATILE
Fast enough for onshore, stable enough for high speed, down-the-line wall rides.

/ INSTANT ACCELERATION
An efficient rocker with low-drag entry gets the Nano up and moving with the slightest gust.

/ FUNCTIONAL VOLUME
Volume distribution centres the volume where you need it, not up on the nose or right at the tail. This makes the Nano really optimised for its size. Small and efficient.

/ CHANNELS
Channels create lift in sub-par conditions but allow you to remain in control when the waves turn on.

/ FINS
Fins are custom designed with a swept outline to enhance flex and progressive feel.
A balanced chord length hits the sweet spot between speed and drive. G10 construction is responsive and durable.

/ NANO DIMENSIONS
Small. Its short length and narrow width makes the Nano extremely compact. Sure, it fits in the car easier, but the real benefit is a smaller rotational space; fits into hollow sections of small waves, or quick aerial rotations.

/ PROGRESSIVE RAILS
Blending from thin, refined rails at the tail and through the stance, the rails get progressively fuller towards the nose.
This automatically sets the trim when turning – the front rides safe and high, while the tail bites and drives through the turn.

TECHNOLOGY

1. PARALLEL OUTLINE

The parallel outline decreases drag and increases stability. Overall width is reduced which helps give the boards a smaller, more manoeuvrable feel. After careful balancing of the volume distribution the nose has been pulled in to reduce swing weight and speed up reaction.
Tail area has been increased for more power and drive

2. REFINED BOTTOM SHAPE

The double concave / V bottom shape remains. Total V has been reduced to improve acceleration and early planing.
Tail channels have been added to increase grip and surface area. Also acts as an extra tail kick for tighter turns.

3. COMPACT VOLUME DISTRIBUTION

The reduced length centres the volume where you need it. Optimised deck angles transition from reduced volume rails to high volume standing area.

1. PROGRESSIVE RAIL DESIGN

The hard release edge at the tail of the board becomes progressively rounded and soft towards the front of the board.
The apex of the rail becomes progressively higher through the forward sections to prevent catching. Bevels through the front sections raise the apex even higher for more clearance and increase the hit rate of landed moves.

5. QUAD FINS

Four fins provide a responsive surf feel with grip and increased stability.

/ COMPARED TO THE PYRO

/ TIGHTER TURNS. The compact length and tail channels allow the Nano to turn on a dime.
/ LOOSER FEEL. The stance, dimensions, and span all contribute to the surf-like feeling.
/ WAVE SIZE. Better suited to tight turns in small waves.

/ COMPARED TO THE DYNO

/ LOOSER. Less locked in, the Nano loves to turn.
/ MORE RESPONSIVE. The thinner rails make the Nano more sensitive to foot pressure.
/ SMALLER FOOTPRINT. The compact size allows the Nano to fit into hollow wave faces better.

FEATURES _BOARD PROGRAM

/ HEX 4
A single tool does everything.

/ BATTEN TENSION ADJUSTMENT.
/ FIN SCREWS (BOTH SLOTBOX AND POWERBOX).
/ FOOTSTRAP INSTALLATION.
/ BEER OPENER.

The HEX4 tool is supplied with every sail and every board. Compared to a Philips screwdriver, the 4mm hex key is a much easier system to tighten and adjust footstraps and fins. It only requires a rotational movement rather than downforce + rotation. The wide boomerang gives enough leverage to fully tighten footstraps with a fraction of the effort of a Philips screwdriver.

/ GORETEX AIRVENT
Maintaining a constant internal pressure inside the board minimizes the risk of delamination or core damage. The waterproof Goretex membrane allows air to transfer freely into and out of the board constantly to automatically regulate internal pressure.
The main advantages over a traditional screw-type plug are;

/ IMMEDIATE REGULATION. RATHER THAN ONLY EQUALIZING PRESSURE WHEN THE SCREW IS OPENED, THE GORETEX AIRVENT IS CONSTANTLY BALANCING THE PRESSURE.
/ HANDS-FREE OPERATION. INSTEAD OF MANUALLY OPENING A VALVE, THE GORETEX AIRVENT REGULATES PRESSURE WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ANYTHING.

Our Airvent features a second membrane at the base of the plug as a back-up failsafe. Even in the unlikely event of damage to the top of the Airvent plug, the back-up will prevent water entry.
The Airvent is completely automatic, so don’t adjust or tighten before or after windsurfing or flying – it’s always working to keep your board at optimum pressure.

/ SLOT BOX +
The original SlotBox design offered some advantages over a standard US box:

/ WEIGHT. THE SLOTBOX WAS LIGHTER, SO HELPED PREVENT BOARDS WITH MULTIPLE FIN BOXES BEING TOO TAIL-HEAVY.
/ SIMPLICITY. INSTALLING A FIN IN A SLOTBOX WAS QUICKER AND EASIER WITHOUT HAVING TO FIRST INSTALL A PLATE AND THEN LINE UP THE HOLE IN THE FIN TO ADD THE SCREW.

But there were some disadvantages. Even minor impact could cause damage to the box, or easily knock the fin out.
With the new SlotBox+ design the advantages have been maintained and the disadvantages addressed. Even lighter than the original SlotBox means multiple fin setups can be used on the one board without a weight penalty. Thruster or Quad options can be chosen depending on conditions or preference.
By adding a locking pin at the front of the box fin retention is now a lot more reliable, which means minor reef contact isn’t likely to end your session. Supplied fins have a groove in the base to lock onto the pin for added reliability, but any existing SlotBox fin is still compatible without any modification.
Bigger HEX4 grub screws handle impact and also add to overall reliability. And uses the same tool as your batten tensioners.
