Firewire FST Vanguard surfboard 5ft 4 FCS II - White
Template: The outline of the Vanguard is the key to this highly innovative surfboard. Ultra parallel lines allow the board to be ridden smaller and narrower than previously thought useable. This is achieved by maintaining the correct rider volume with well distributed foam. The parallel outline reduces drag, thus increasing dynamic planing lift yielding more speed via less water resistance.
Nose Profile: The unique diamond nose significantly reduces 'swing weight' while still providing that central control point. The diamond nose is also blunt and safe, encouraging the rider to push the limits of personal performance and have fun. The nose features a contour to reduce the rate of pearling by creating aerodynamic lift. As the rider gains speed he/she will notice the nose channelling wind resistance, which in turn, lifts the nose upward. This feature is also very beneficial to the surfer with an aerial repertoire, and adds a tremendous element of control when riding backward out of radical manoeuvre.
Tail Profile: The radical twin diamond tail gives excellent directional control and extremely low drag. The technical channelled bottom contour helps to maximize speed and control through sharp directional changes.
The rider will experience total freedom and planing speed right form the get go. The very short nature of the design allows the rider to completely dominate the board. The straightened rail line will allow for effortless and precise turns and direct transitions.
Although aimed at high performance shredding, the Vanguard is a surprisingly easy ride for a wide range of surfers and abilities. It's super stable, naturally fast with very efficient wave catching ability!
The rapid response flex memory in the Future Shapes Technology used in these boards yields great speed through the turns whilst the parabolic rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years.
