The guys at Vandem are great to deal with and quickly answered the questions I had, then packed up this beautiful board for me (Hackebrett Wasser). The board it self is 'woah' level beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. I gripped it with clear tape so some of that natural beauty shines through. The handling is very positive, not too squashy, great for carving and downhill. I can't wait till next weekend and go out again!
