Had a closer look at the bottom. It looks like a nose has a double concave with a vee, moves to a single concave and out into a wide channel towards the tail. Kind of like the Hokua SUP line.

Our wind report looks like shit so I have no expectation of use the next 10 days :(

Anyone compare the skater to the vanguard? I tried the medium Naish the other day and had tons of fun on a light day.

I will once the wind comes back. If the boards line up I think next weekend might have some wind :o

If I get it all sorted I can send you my opinion in a PM to avoid the flamers..you already know how to sort comments into what makes sense to you and what is unreasonable excitement from me. RIght now though I only have a few minutes on the Naish board so I'll come into it with no experience on either board.

Sometimes I wish I lived on Maui.

I´ve seen Jalou Langeree riding it last weekend.
It took me almost 10 views before I realized that she´s riding a directional waveboard. Looked like an ordinary twintip all the time.
These "TT-shaped waveboards" might ride nicely, but I cannot accept the TT-look. Not for me...

:roll: "I'm not going to ride an awesome board because it looks different." Brilliant! You must be in government.
