The speed of this year’s board comes from its newly designed rocker line. The rocker is more curved through the center and straighter towards the tips. This allows the board to glide over the water with more speed without pushing through it and also offers a more forgiving landing.
The new Vanguards are also much lighter in weight and more flexible resonating comfort throughout the ride. In addition to speed and comfort, the 148 Vanguard is a light wind machine.
