The Vert, tested by Pete Hardie


Pete tested the Vert surfboard for Realwatersports in Cape Hatteras, NC.  Here’s the gist of what he said:

Durability :

Rails are the strongest part of the board, hard to stave in. Your heels could leave a mark on the deck but it’s a minor detail compare to other brands.

Feel :

Soft because of the concave deck and responsive.

Verdict :

A huge potential in Strapless Kitesurfing due to the technology and the feel…and the price under average.
