Stuart Kennedy on ESPN

|

I ran into my good mate Stu Kennedy on my recent trip back to Australia. He was psyched on the new boards i have been shaping and promptly started blasting some crazy maneuvers. After a few sessions on my 5'0 Vanguard Stu was convinced that he wanted to ride these new crafts in the nike lowers contest. Skip forward to this week, Stu shows up at Lowers and puts on a clinical new school performance on his new 5'1 deathstar, turns more than a few heads in the events warmup and unfortunately had a wave starved round of 96ht. Main stream media are stoked on the progessive nature and performance Stuey showed. evidence to come.

That's so rad Dan - awesome news. Now the wait for a new stick is going to be even longer! Can't wait for my Deathstar. I know I'm not going to punt like Stu but maybe I can graduate to 2 credit cards on my airs.

Hey Dan - Yeah the vangaurds look really good, nice clean lines. Only a matter of time until they take off in a HUGE way...
Just a design querry how much weight to you put on the weight of your boards? I can bring the weight of my boards down about 20% with some strength compromised but I'm not really convinced it will make a huge improvement... i dont want you to give any secrets away but how light do your 5-6 ft boards come out at?

Does your old man still make the fins? would love get a low drag quad set up for the next board...
Cheers
