Firewire's SKX by Tomo

 
The SKX has arrived.
All your SKX questions answered - click this image to explore the SKX.
After months of receiving DMs, emails and phone calls about the SKX, we're happy to say it's now here.

You can walk into most surf shops around the world and find the SKX in Stuey Kennedy's exact dimensions, and in whatever dimensions look good to you.

You can explore this shape in detail by clicking here.
Stuey Kennedy's SKX is now at surf shops everywhre. 
The SKX that STU rides is 5'8. It lands at 25.8 liters of volume with a width of 18 5/8 and a thickness of 2 5/16ths.

Stu is 5’9 and weighs about 160 pounds (73 KG), so if you’re a good surfer, you can plan on surfing the SKX at about your height or an inch shorter.

But the relatively narrow outline of the SKX (without much width placed forward of the boards center-point)  will let you get away with surfing it up to about 2 inches longer than your height if needed, to get the volume you want.

For perspective, Stu surfs his Sci-Fi at stock 5’7 dimensions, so one inch shorter than his SKX.

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!

Please read the report description for a better explanation of all factors regarding the waves. We report conditions in "A moment in time" and conditions can change right after the report or between reports. Don't kill the messenger. Email Mother Nature for changing the conditions if you miss it. Thanks for checking WBlivesurf.com. The only report in town that checks the surf 4 times daily with our feet in the sand during rain, sleet, snow, or shine.
