Axis Vanguard 2014


The 2014 Axis Vanguard features a pronounced full length 4 channel bottom, a Paulownia wood core with top and bottom layers of Uni Carbon and 3 holes for adjusting stance width and 5 options for adjusting duck. With medium overall weight, testers felt this board goes upwind with ease, handles chop extremely well and is fun and easy to ride. Compared to the NuSkool, the Vanguard is a little more forgiving with slight more flex and testers recommended this as a great freeride board.

    The Vanguard has everything you’d be looking for in an intermediate and above freeride board and for looking towards freestyle. Feeling very smooth and in control, it’s just more laid back and not quite as eager as the NuSkool. Speed is perfectly adequate, it’s not going to run away with you but there is still plenty of energy and stiffness there for good pop. The light weight helps when you want to pull your knees up for a bit of steez, but we did find that in really strong winds that we’d like a bit more reassurance from a little extra swing weight. But for throwing stuff in most regular conditions it was great fun and has lots of energy. If you’re more of a shape maker and more aggressive, the NuSkool would suit you better, it’s more suited to ripping round a race track. The Vanguard is more like riding around on a cushion of air, breaking all the nastiness in the water up nicely.
