Found in many premier kitesurfing destinations around the world, the Vader is a favorite among team riders like Felix Pivec, Warrick Myer and Ryland Blakeney.
It’s also the go to board with many who attend Marc Ramseier’s surf wave clinics in destinations like Ireland, Mauritius, Oman and Denmark.
The Vader enables riders to have all of the planing and performance of the Vanguard, but with tighter turns in the pocket because of how the rail line shortened in the Vader’s diamond tail.
If high-performance vertical attack is when you’re seeking, Vader is your favorite kiteboard.
A look inside: The Seaside built in Helium Tech – an ultralight EPS foam core with flex controlled in the rail from nose to tail; a blend of paulownia and balsa wood. Aerospace composite deckskins make you feel like you’re creating footwells in the deck, but it often looks new even after a month of surfing.
