hey just wanted to ask if the ryan hardy ltd PP 12/13 model comes in black deck/green slick(preferably 42.25)? and if you have any in stock, otherwise do you have the black deck white slick 42.25 in stock? looking to place an order over the next couple of days, also do you think this board would suit west aus winter conditions? cheers lads.
Hey mate. Yes these come in Black deck, Green Pinline, Black Rails, White Slick. The 42.25 is available.
yes these are good for WA waters.
Hey Guys, just curious as to what length board best suits me. Im 5'11 and weigh about 160.
I'd go the 42.25.
Hi whats the dimensions for this board 41.5? Do you also have any with a black deck and green slick? Thanks.
Hey Dimensions are:
Nose to Wide Point: 18.5
Yes we have these in Black Deck/ Green Slick
Does the hardy ltd have one or two stringers? What do you think the max weight in lbs. is for the board?
The Hardy Ltd has 1 Stringer + Mesh.
Max weight for a 42.25 would be about 220lbs
What is this board like for Drop Knee riding? The contoured deck looks a bit weird, is it grippy enough or should I go for the flat surfaced PP board?
Hey Karl. yeah these go ok for Dropknee. Maybe better to go for a flat deck though for the DK.
1 or 2 stringer ???
hey mate i was thinking of buying the ryan hardy ltd in the gray and red... it the photo up the top it has no contour? and then in feeatures it does? gose this board have ryan hardy contours? :) cheers
Hey. Yes the Ryan Hardy ltd has contours. We just dont have shots of the contour in every colourway.
We have the Ltd in Grey Deck/ Red Bottom with the contour in this model
with the "VS BODYBOARDS Ryan Hardy Ltd Bodyboard", in the white colour option (green slick etc), does that still have the same contours as the displayed yellow board? And what sizes do you have in stock of the white deck?
Cheers, Mitch !
yes it has the exact same contours.
We have the White Deck in all sizes listed
Go ahead and order if you want one!
we recently bought our son a VS Ryan Hardy Ltd PP Core 2011/12 Model body board and I am about to fit a leash plug so it is important to know how many stringers does the board have?
Your help would be appreciated on the above information and any tips that would help fit the plug.
Hey. The boards usually have stickers showing where the stringers are.
if you put the plug about 5cm either side of the middle you'll be safe either way.
You can just plug using a screw driver, just make sure you keep the screwdriver at 90 degrees so the whoe is stright.
what does it mean when they talk about a reverse rocker?
Reverse Rocker means the rocker is inverted.
If the board sits on the ground slick down the tail and nose will be touching the ground but the rest of the board will be lifted of the ground.
Here's some info on different types of rocker:
The rocker is the curve through the length of the board.
If you put the board on the ground slick down the board will rock if you
tap it on the nose or tail.
Dead flat means it will lie flat with the gradient shaped into the nose
the only thing coming off the ground. It will not "rock" This is fast and
holds in well, More for the advanced rider.
Little bit of nose rocker means it will have a slight lift off the ground
from around the first foot or so from the nose. Less Likely to Nosedive
and easier to turn. For the Intermediate Rider.
Quite a lot of rocker means both the nose and tail will be lifting off the
ground if it's lying on the ground. Only the middle of the board will be
touching the ground.
Not likely to nosedive and easy to turn but not very fast or responsive.
For the Beginner rider
Touch of reverse rocker means the nose and tail will be touching the
ground and there will be a slight lift off the ground in the middle of the
This board is super fast and responsive but easy to catch rails and nosedive.
For the Advance rider or pro
Most boards are Dead Flat. Most Pro's ride Reverse rocker.
Hope this answers your questions.
