It was during his giant killing run at the 2016 Quiksilver Pro that Stu Kennedy exploded into the global surfing community’s consciousness. What particularly peaked the public’s interest was the Tomo shaped Firewire crafts under his feet.

Those craft have remained under Stu’s feet throughout his time on tour, working closely with shaper and hometown friend Tomo to perfect his blades.

Stu recently took to some Fijian juice to test a fresh batch ahead of the Outerknown Fiji Pro, before continuinf the R&D in the familiar waters of home.
