Perfection takes time. Perfecting them in FST is what took time.
Getting the magic right and cosmetics was very important.
The real deal will be hitting store's very soon.
Thanks to the guys that have held off and not been sucked in to knock offs.
Does FW gives a new release date for the Vanguard kite version?

After some glass work it looked just like the Vanguard.
Wish I had a picture of it.....
Don't think I'll ever to be able to find love for the Vanguard.
Its just too ugly and will never look like a real a surfboard.
Thanks, but I'll stay with my amazing 6-0 Quadra5 (Quadraflex)
Have you ridden one? The looks are really only a byproduct of the amazing design of, your broken nose board is nothing like a vanguard. Honestly I don't want to go back to my regular boards after ridding multiple MPH boards.

The kite version is not surprisingly heavier than the surf version we had (which is unfortunately dead after several heavy landing/crack/repairs ).
The 5'2 equipped with fins (quad) and tail pad is around 3,5 kg. The 5'4 should be a tad heavier.
It is an estimation, as I need to use a proper scale to confirm.
