Simply put, the Vespa RT is a Fatty with a roundtail. It’s longer than a Fatty (plus 1.25”) and has the internal changes we developed when we were working on the Tracker Roundtail. It’s fantastic small wave mat for anyone from 185 to 250 pounds.
Volume-wise, the VRT is a lot of mat. But there isn't a wasted cubic centimeter of air, or wasted square inch of fabric. In 1-4 foot surf, it virtually redefines bottom end performance of mat riding. The cutbacks are insane (round and carving, like when you're turning back on an overhead wave) and the down-the-line and over-the-flats skimming is ball-bearing effortless. Paddling and catching waves is excellent as well.
