All the Vanguards that I currently have are the surf version.
They are all production sizes. But very fragile, been taking it super easy on them.
Boards are super easy spin 360s on and shuvit. Great for jumping but have not been going to hard on it.
Will be great when the kite layup is complete.[quote="BudhaNl"]Great new info
"""Felix, could you elaborate on the 5'4 being a bit too much once the wind kicks in? I was wondering at which windspeed you're experiencing that.
Thing is, waves build up towards respectable sizes over here when the wind's howling almost exclusively, so at my 176 pounds (that's excl. wetsuit/harness) the 5'4 should keep up when the average wind hits up to 30 knots.""""
Your weight you will not have an issue at all. 5'4 all the way.
Its your money size.
Board really has a lot of glide so it really gets up and goes.
At 155-160 its that little bit too much foam to sink the rail when having that little bit of extra speed when a gust hits. Riding unhooked.
