The Vader Modern Planing Hull (MPH) is the continued evolution of the MPH. Over five years in the making, this next rung in the MPH ladder is everything you could want a board to be. The Vader will give you all of the planing and performance of the Vanguard but offers even tighter turns in the pocket, is blazing fast and has a skate feel with directional drive. A completely asymmetrical design offers easy access to airs and further reduces the rail line minimizing drag and increasing lift optimizing upwind performance.
The Vader comes without inserts in a 5/4/3 fin configuration allowing you multiple options for fin setup and is built in our proven Future Shapes Technology (FST) construction. Unlike most boards that favor one fin setup or the other, the Vader truly rides equally as well as a quad or a tri fin. With the parallel rail line the Vader can be ridden much smaller than your traditional board and if you currently have a Vanguard then go 1-2 inches smaller for the Vader. Ride the pinnacle in state of the art wave craft and experience a feeling that only a Vader can deliver.
(Future Shape Technology) - FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both the top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than a traditional PU surfboard.
