Features;

Functional Design; Tapered tips and pronounced cutouts maximize wheel clearance for deep carves and tight turns. Sidecuts reduce torsional stiffness between the feet for greater nuances in the turning radius. Mild concave provides edge-to-edge control, while the topmount and cambered platform provides energetic carving performance.

Curvaceous Confidence; Lightweight, snowboard-inspired bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.

Super SAP; Bio-based epoxy by Entropy Resins. Uses bio-based materials from industrial waste streams such as tree sap to replace petroleum content and reduce the carbon footprint of the epoxy from manufacturing. We’ve worked closely with Entropy to enhance every major performance characteristic of the resin. Better for the planet, even more fun.

History & Graphic; The initial Vanguard was launched in June of 2002 using snowboard technology with a vertically laminated oak deck and a triaxial fiberglass/epoxy composite construction. Bringing snowboarding to the pavement. We pioneered bamboo composites with the Vanguard in 2006 and transitioned the rest of our lineup to bamboo in 2007. When we launched we originally didn’t have much of a graphic because it was technology driven (and also because we didn’t have the resources to do art well at that point). In 2004 we launched a graphic version of the board designed by our longtime friend Travis Parr (Travis is a ripping skater, snowboarder and an amazing artist. He’s designed a bunch of boards for Victoria Skimboards and is the co-founder and art director for Icelantic Skis). However, the graphics on these boards were very limited by the technology at the time. We’re now celebrating our 21-year anniversary with this hand-numbered, limited-edition Vanguard using cutting-edge direct printing technology on bamboo veneers with artwork created from Travis’ original painting.

We normally do not deliver to drop-shipping companies or storage/self-storage companies.

Changing delivery address while your order is in transit – if you decide to change the delivery address after the delivery service was confirmed and the information was entered into the system, a redirection will lead to a different delivery time and therefore, a delayed delivery.  Note that even if the new address is very close to the initial one, the information still has to be changed and the package re-labelled, which can lead to a change in the delivery date as well.  In such cases, it would usually be quicker for the delivery to fail then pick up the order from the local depot in the evening of the due date.

Almost all deliveries will take place as scheduled. However, certain issues may be out of our control resulting in possible delays.  Due to this, we advise against taking time off daily routines, such as work, to avoid any issues.
