With a symmetrical shape and stance for a balanced centre of gravity as well as the ability to weight and unweight the deck through turns for control and efficient energy generation, this performance downhill Loaded Vanguard longboard deck will change the way you experience topography.
Snowboard Style Freeriding At Its Finest!
The Vanguard longboard brings lightweight snowboard-inspired construction and performance to the pavement. Camber, sidecuts, and high-energy flex allow for responsive carving, pumping, and commuting. Since 2002

Tapered shape maximizes 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 top mount and cambered platform provides energetic carving performance.
Lightweight, snowboard-inspired bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.
LIGHT & DURABLE
Available in two sizes and four flex ratings to tailor the ride to your stance, weight, and style. Lower flex is ideal for heavier riders; higher flex is recommended for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.
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.
