  • Description

    Description

    The one that started it all. Symmetrical shape and stance for a balanced center of gravity to increase the ability to weight the deck through turns for better control and energy generation. The sidecuts allow for decreased torsional stiffness between the feet to exploit the board's torsional energy to allow for greater nuances in the turning radius.

    The Vanguard was designed and intended for speeds between 0 and 25 mph (0-40km/hr). You can take the board faster with skill and experience, but it is not intended for higher speeds due to its flex characteristics.

    CAMBER
    Big and lively camber is the heart and soul of the Vanguard. A carvy pumper at heart, the Vanguard was designed with a healthy amount of camber to provide snowboard like responsiveness in a pocket sized package.

    CONCAVE
    A nominal concave provides a locked in feel and stiffens the deck without undermining the camber and flex characteristics of the board.

    GRIPTAPE
    A highly carve-oriented board, the Vanguard features a clear spray grip made of recycled crushed glass. This style of grip allows for full coverage over the entire board without impacting its vital flex characteristics. Additionally, it exposes the beauty of the materials and construction.

    FLEX
    We currently offer five flexes spread out over two lengths.

    Flex 1: 175-230+lbs / 80-105+kg 42\”/107cm
    Flex 2: 150-210+lbs / 68-95+kg 42\”/107cm
    Flex 3: 150-200+lbs / 68-90+kg 38\”/98cm
    Flex 4: 120-170+lbs / 55-77+kg 38\”/98cm
    Flex 5: 80-140+lbs / 35-65+kg 38\”/98cm

    A softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds, however a softer board is more prone to lose stability at higher speeds.

    If you plan on doing a lot of hard-pounding tricks like shovits and bonelesses, a stiff flex will hold up better. Note: It is natural for the boards to break in and become slightly flexier over time.

    CONSTRUCTION
    Epoxy and triaxial fiberglass sandwich a vertically-laminated bamboo core, pressed into concave and convex cambers for liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential.
