VS Ryan Hardy LTD Bodyboard
Widely respected as the dominant force in bodyboarding today, justified by his 6x number one placings in Riptide's peer poll. With a new quiver of VS boards, hand shaped by QCD master shaper Todd Quigley, the two continue a relationship that has virtually spanned Hardy's professional career. Ryan is stoked to be riding a product that can assist him in his quest to take his first, long awaited world crown.
Quigley commented "Hardy IS performance bodyboarding. There's no discussion necessary. I'm amped to be working with Ryan again and I'm focused on making our project something special. The VS Project will give us the opportunity to focus this knowledge into a range of boards that both Ryan and I can be proud of."
