2014 was an amazing year for Vasco Ribeiro, National Champ, European Junior Champ and World Junior Champ.
The working relationship that Vasco and Nick have built up through the years have payed off, and Vasco’s boards have enabled him to achieve his goals.
The VR-14 is the end product of Vasco and Nick’s work. His work horse is a 6’0’’ Squash tail. This is a full outlined board with balanced width on both sides of the widepoint (center) with a slight flipped nose running into a smooth entrance rocker and a single concave bottom ending in a flat tail release. The deepest point of the concave is between Vasco’s front and back foot. This board is all about speed and looseness. Vasco’s dimensions are full due to his size: 6’0’’ x 18’3/4’’ x 2’3/8’’ with 28.5 Liters of volume.
The width and volume as in all of our models can be adjusted to fit a lighter or heavier surfer. If you are looking for a taste of what the champ is riding, the VR-14 would be your board.
