C4's Sub Vector Nominated for Surfboard of the Year

A testament to Dave Parmenter's shaping ability, the C4 Waterman Sub Vector has been accepted in the category of Surfboard of the Year in the prestigious 2009 SIMA Image Awards. The Surf Industry Manufacturers Association Image Awards' goal is to identify the surf industry’s most influential companies and recognize them for their efforts to advance and grow the industry over the past year.
Length: 9'3"
Nose: 19 1/8"
Width: 28 13/16"
Tail: 19 1/4"
Thickness: 4 1/4"
Weight: 22.5 lbs
Hard Diamond Tail
Fin array: 2 X 1 or Quad (Five Boxes)
Fins Included: SB1 350 Sidebites and 7" Center Fin We are nominating the C4 Waterman SubVector 9-3 stand up paddle board as the surfboard product of the year for three reasons: (1) it is without a doubt the most finely tuned and advanced short SUB on the market, (2) its Thermal Epoxy Compression molding construction is strong, light and eco-friendly, and (3) it is short enough to rip, stable enough for a beginner, and rides with a "feel" that is so important to good surfers.Based on one of C4 shaper/designer Dave Parmenter's most successful surfboard models, the 'Stub-Vector,' this new model has a progressive rocker, flat bottom, firm edges, angular boxy rails, and double-barrel inverted vee panels, the "C4 Sub Vector" delivers sports-car-like speed and snappy handling characteristics. Its lightly concave deck carries out to a crisp, soaring deckline, providing the maximum of usable deck width and, thus, increased stability; the concave deck blends at the tail into innovative new foot wells, which lower the center of gravity and grant the rider's back foot more leverage and grip in radical turns.C4 Waterman is a company dedicated promoting the life of the waterman. Our goal is to bring products to market that bring out the hidden waterman in everyone.
