    So, does anybody know how to actually order one of these? Firewire doesn't return calls or emails, the kiteboard shopping site redirects to a holding page, and Felix doesn't return PM's. I really just want somebody to take my money already.

      Bushflyr, shoot me an email at [email protected] and I'll be certain to get you squared away. Not sure why you haven't been receiving the love, but would be happy to hear more about that in email and see what we can do about that as well.

        Awesome! Vanguard 5'4" kite construction in hand and wind in the forecast!
        Thanks to Felix and Brian for hooking me up!

          Hi guys I'm 89kgs would the 5'6" at 28 odd liters be enough volume for less kite dependent free cross shore kiteing?

            Hi everybody!

            I'm hesitating between Vanguard 5'0 and 5'2. I'm 140lbs (63Kgs) for 1m70 height. I have a medium level in strapless kitesurfing but I've surfing (witout kite) for 17 years. I've already the Firewire KP1 5'11 which I love but I would complete my quiver by the VG. I don't want to surf with it but only surfkiting.

            Thanks in advance for your answers!

              Hi David,

              I think that for your size a 5'0 would be the ticket!
              If BZH mean Bretagne, you can give a call to Vincent in TheCornerShop-Paris, he has extensive experience with all the vanguard sizes (note that his favourite is the 5'0... even if he weight 75kg)
              Hope this help

              Have Fun & Ride Safe

              Hi Phil!

              Thanks for your answer! I've called Vincent and he said me I could get the VG 5'0 due to my light weight. But I'd like to have a board for light wind (12/15knts) and small waves so I think I'll get the 5'2.

            Agreed. I'm 145 lbs and am using the 5'0". Love it. If you want to surf it, then I'd go 5'2". It sounds like it'll be a kitesurfing-dedicated board though.
