Firewire Vanguard Surfboard (FST) **

Yep, the Firewire Vanguard looks weird and defies traditional principles of surfboard design, but having put it through it's paces ourselves, we can testify that it works - really bloody well!
From Daniel 'Tomo' Thomson's revolutionary MPH (Modern Planing Hull) series, the Vanguard is super-fast and zappy in the small stuff, yet surprisingly secure in solid waves.

Don't be put off by it's quirky looks - this is a highly functional surfboard that lends itself to rail surfing and tricks in a wide range of conditions.

In the words of Firewire, "higher degrees of speed, electric wave attack and radical aerial potential are all possible with this highly tuned machine."

The Vanguard's parallel outline reduces resistance and facilitates drawn out rail turns while its twin diamond tail profile and channel/concave combo enable quick/precise changes of direction. The end result is a fast, direct and surprisingly smooth ride.

The lift provided by the diamond nose contour will give you the confidence to take risks and smash it about without fear of pearling. Whether you're snapping off the top or riding backwards out of new school tricks, the likelihood of nose-diving is drastically reduced.

The Vanguard is easy to ride for a wide range of surfing abilities and is great for catching waves. It provides stability and speed whilst lending itself to drawn out carves and new school craziness. This is a versatile, fun board that might just re-invigorate your surfing.
