The new 2011 line of windsurfing board introduced by F2 is intended to suit a wide range of riding styles and skills. The board series gathers specific board models for beginners, intermediate and advanced and pro riders. The new Vantage is especially crafted for intermediate riders. It is accurate and stable, easy to handle and has a progressive power delivery. The board can also be used by beginners and advanced riders. It provides the perfect amount of power and speed depending on the rider’s needs and on his input.  The board has a rounded, hydrodynamic shape which assures a smooth and fast glide.

The proportional volume distribution makes it very stable and easy to handle in various wind and wave conditions. The board feels loose and it is easy to control. It can be used in both flat waters and small wave conditions without problems. The F2 Vantage uses a double concave with side flats bottom design in the front area which generates a smooth and fluid drive. At the same time, the Flat V in the tail allows the rider to perform nice jibes with minimum effort. The smooth rails keep him in control at all times.

The board uses a single fin for optimal power delivery and reduced drag. The fin also adds more grip in tight turns. The F2 Vantage features multiple strap positions. The inner position is perfectly fitted for beginners and intermediates and assures improved stability, while the outer position suits advanced riders who need to stand close to the rails and have good leverage for tighter and faster turns. The F2 Vantage is user friendly and has the power to keep up with the rider as he progresses.
