The "vanguard" short stubby style of SUP has become increasingly popular for performance SUP riders wanting to go shorter without giving up volume. So keeping with demand we have created this fun little pocket rocket.  After making a shortboard version of this bad boy for the past couple of seasons and numerous requests we've blown it up into a SUP. The board has the same features as its shortboard counterpart with bevelled rails and deep single into double concave however we've added 4 channels providing additional bite and hold. The boards have comparable stability to others about 2 feet longer largely thanks to the parallel outline and wide nose and tail. A fast, fun high performance machine that can be thrown around with ease. It has plenty of skate with good controlled release. 

 

Greater performance is achieved with optimum "flex" and drive utilising a carbon matrix lay up.  It combines the flex of carbon innegra deck with the torsional strength of carbon fibre bottom. This layup makes for a more "natural" surf experience with less "stiffness". The compressive strength of the deck is further enhanced with divinycell.
