It’s time to take freestyle performance to a new level with the 2014 Gaastra Vane. This is an explosive board designed to suit the needs of demanding riders, taking part in world class competitions. At the same time it packs a pinch of forgiveness, so it can also accommodate less expert riders. The perfect blend of power, pop and control make it extremely versatile.

As the guys at Gaastra say, the Vane allows you explode on the scene of freestyle. And they are right. Every aspect of the board has been fine tuned to suit competition grade freestylers. The board features an all-round friendly outline which allows it to run very smooth even in demanding conditions like chop. The optimized flex characteristics combined with the hard edges generate awesome pop.

You can take off in an instant and perform technical tricks with ease. At the same time, landings are smooth and predictable. Wider stances provide you with enhanced control when gliding or boosting. The board holds a good edge and has awesome edge control. At the same time it can push upwind with fast speed and has very good early planing performance. It is equipped with four 5 cm G5 fins which enhance its upwind abilities and assure quick and tight turns.

The special bottom shape generates a clean and smooth glide and assures perfect stability. Gaastra has built the Vane using a full wood core which guarantees unique flexibility with proven durability. The board comes with 4x5 cm fins in G5, Pro Pads (with Glass fiber base and "wide stance support"), Ergo Straps and Handle.
