VS Ryan Hardy Parabolic (PFS) Core Bodyboard 2012/13 Model
Ryan Hardy is everyones sentimental favourite. His flawless style and fearless attitude is the stuff of legends.
2012 has been a great year for Hardy, Winning the IBA Box pro and a second in the Zicatella pro.
He's on track to be a #1. His board is already!
This is What Ryan has to say about his board:
My shape has always been refined to allow for maximum speed and control when the waves get serious. This years template is no different and it allows me the confidence to get the best controlled scoop possible when dropping into the wave and maximum speed and forward projection off the bottom turn. I like riding the PE core when the water is colder and the waves are suckier and heavier. This gives me the best flex for scooping and maneuverability that's required when you're moving fast in heavy waves. I prefer to ride the PP core when the water is warmer and the waves are softer, have a bit more of a slope and thinner lips. In these conditions I find the PP's rigidity to be optimum in retaining maximum speed from take off to finish and it also provides the greatest 'pop' or projection off the lip.
He has combined his board knowledge with his precise wave riding skills to come up with this board.
If you wanna surf like Ryan this is where the dream begins.
