        Hey Pukas, have not have the conditions to ride the Vanguard yet, but a grosso modo this is waht I see:
        The vanguard has to be seen in person. You don't get the idea of the nose and the contours until you hold the board in your hands.
        1)For starters, the straigh line on the board from nose to tail gives this board a great planning area which has a reduced resistance to the water, hence making the board really fast.
        2)Most of the foam on the board is located under the chest/front foot which makes the board paddle ok (it is true that the board will preffer better waves) despite the configuration.
        3)The board has some sort of little spines on the corners of the nose which, combined with the single concave and rocker, makes for the nose no to pearl.

        Since I coudn't surf the board due to lack of waves, I took it out for a paddle just to see how it floated. @89Kgs 6/4 suit with 5mm gloves and 7mm boots, I was surprised with the way the 5'6" held my weight. I can't but wait for some surf to actually get this one a try. Innovative design, crazy engineering in it
        Now compared to the spit, the biggest difference will be on the range of conditions they both cover, with the Spitfire handling the bigger one.
        Performance wise, the spit will not be as fast as the VG. If you are a competent surfer on the aereal game and your normal conditions tend to be on the good range, the VG is a board you wanna have around. I do see the VG on a quiver as an HP board with a Potatonator or a Spitfire alongside.
        Can't get enough of looking at the board.
        Any news if this one will be offered in FST or the contours will make it hard?

          Been told it will def be offered in FST but I was told that re the Baked Potato and that intention was changed.

                    Colder temps means less crowds and less crowds means more waves. Loving the look of your new VG.

                      Thanks bud!!. Love winter surfing,that weird feeling that tells you you are not supposed to be there but yet you are. The bucket in the car to defrost the zipper so you can get change, the icicles in the visor. If only we could get through without the gloves...

                        Ha, Iggy's winter surfing differs from most of ours I'm sure. I've never had icicles on my hood or had to defrost my zipper that's for sure!
