The Vader is the latest incarnation of Daniel 'Tomo' Thomson's trailblazing Modern Planing Hull concept. On first inspection it's very similar to the Vanguard, the first in the MPH series, but there's a couple of key differences...
...Most noticably in the tail shape, which features a single diamond as opposed to a double, which loosens the board up while providing a bit of extra speed.
A change that isn't so obvious is the reduction in foil from nose to tail, which allows it to be surfed yet shorter, providing a level of control you never thought possible.
The straight, extended rail line is obviously maintained, allowing really drawn out, snowboard style turns; as is the squared-off nose with it's distinctive channels, which reduce the likelihood of pearling.
The Firewire Vader is designed for anything in the waist to double-overhead range, putting it way up there in terms of versatility. Ride it as a quad in weak waves to increase the speed; switch to a tri-fin when the swell picks up and you need a little more control. Trust us, it’ll still offer plenty of speed!
