The new Nano takes the compact waveboard concept to the next level.
Experiments with rocker, bottom contours, surface area distribution, and fin placement have delivered significant improvements in stability and all-around sailability. On top of that, acceleration and tight radius turning have also been enhanced with the addition of multiple channels in the tail. Aesthetics are aggressive. Performance is electrifying. Versatility is massive.
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:
Fast enough for onshore, stable enough for high speed, down-the-line wall rides. And then with the option of Thruster drive and power or Quad manoeuvrability.
An efficient rocker with low-drag entry gets the Nano up and moving with the slightest gust.
Volume distribution centres the volume where you need it, not up on the nose or right at the tail. This makes the Nano really efficient for its size. Small and efficient.
Small. Its short length and narrow width make 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.
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.

UPGRADES FOR 2020
/ CHANNEL BOTTOM DESIGN.
/ SURF OUTLINE.
/ MORE POWERFUL TAIL.
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.
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.
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.
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.
FIN OPTIONS: QUAD
Quad fin set ups provide a responsive surf feel with grip and increased stability for faster down the line conditions.
FIN OPTIONS: THRUSTER
The thruster fin set up gives enhanced upwind ability and efficient speed and acceleration for both jumping and wave riding.
COMPARED TO THE MAKO
/ Faster. Its low-drag outline and fast rocker increase speed.
/ More drive. The wider tail generates more lift to get you through flat spots.
/ Tighter turns. The compact length and channels allow the Nano to turn on a dime.
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.
