I am debating on picking up either a 5'6 vanguard or a 5'10 sub scorcher to replace my 5'10 stealth. I am going to be picking up a michel bourez 6'0 thin this upcoming Sunday and already have a 5'10 mini driver and a 5'10 dominator that is too big for me but great for small days and I had it converted to a single fin as well. The only thing that worries me about the vanguard is that it will screw up my regular short boarding because it is so different. At 5'6 the vanguard will have higher volume than my stealth and the MD and MB. I'm hoping that it will grovel on 3 foot waves but extend the range that the sub scorcher would otherwise lose some performance in. Any advice would be welcome.
No announcement yet.
