''Photographer Dana Edmunds was at Makaha the other day shooting an ad for Maui Jims and saw this guy stand up paddle surfing on a C4 board. He said, "The guy was just ripping." Turns out it was team rider Greg Pavao on the prototype 9-8 Subvector. Yes, it's Dave Parmenter's now infamous 9-3... up-sized for bigger guys looking for a high performance short board. The prototype 9-8 Greg was riding was a poly custom by Dave, but in a few months the 9-8 Subvector with Boardworks T.E.C. (Therman Epoxy Compression) construction, like the majority of C4's you see in the water, will be available.''
I do remember when I was demoing the 9-3 Sub Vee in Fl. last month that Dave and Todd mentioned a couple of larger Sub Vectors were in the early stages of R & D.. Dave mentioned a 9'-8'' and a bit larger but thinner as length gets longer. I wonder what the dimensions are on this prototype. The problem with this great sport is there is too much ''CANDY'' out there.
