The Black Vulture is our newest model that team rider Lee Wilson put to the test. Lee fell in love with his 55 Black Vulture and claims its one of the fastest boards he has ever ridden. Lets break it down:
The Black Vulture has a fuller nose, added foam under the chest and a wider outline. The wide point is a little further forward too, giving it great foam under the chest and front foot when your surfing, also making it a wave catching machine (much similar foam distribution to the Rare Bird). We then gave it a bump swallow tail to pull the tail in and give it drive. Combined with a single concave to vee out through the tail. Resulting in a wave catching machine that turns on a dime.
We recommend riding it the same or slightly shorter than the Rare Bird, or your desired volume.
Our team has surfed it as a twin w/ center stabiliser and with a traditional thruster set up and found gold in both.
