Model: Vanguard • Dimensions: 5’8” 19” 2 1/2” 32.2L • Shaper: Daniel Thomson (Tomo) • Description: The ultra parallel lines of the Vanguard allow the design to be ridden smaller and narrower than previously considered functional. This is achieved by maintaining ideal rider volume with balanced foam distribution. The parallel outline reduces drag, increasing dynamic planing, lift yielding more speed.
