View Full Version : New board suggestions

Hey im looking for a new board, and I was thinking about buying an 06 cwb mobius board. Does anyone recommend it. I am looking for a board with a little more pop. I wish I would have never bought my omega board. Great for learning how to ride, but that is about it.

I ride an '05 Absolute 141. My buddy has an '07 Transend 138. Both amazing boards, lots of rocker and pop. I also have a Liquid Force Substance that goes a looong way. Compare the board specs, then you decide. I went through the same.
Good looking boat!

My son rides the Substance w/ Sphinx bindings, as well. An expensive set up, mind you, but has really taken him to the next level.
Hope this helps.

dude i bought the omega last summer and its a good learning board but not much more than that. i ride the 07 ronix one board i love it.

They actually did change up the marius alot for 08'.

I cant remember all the specs off the top of my head, but its not just a graphics issue, its the whole ride thats been tweaked.

I strongly recommend demoing any board your looking at, trust me, it is the best way too buy.

I ride a 07 CWB Absolute Platinum With 06 Zeus Bindings-I love the set up. The size is perfect for me (im about 5'10) board pops great and lands like a butterfly with sore feet. I like it without the center fins because i canstill get plenty of speed to the wake with out them and save my self on alot of sketchy landings. Good boards are expensive but if your goin with cwb get the platinum editions, they are more costly but are lighter and look a lot cooler. I think the transcend will give you the most pop but its all about what you like. I know everybody wants to have a sweet board on there boat but to me good boots are more imp.

Yeah I board in Lubbock we go to Alan Henry out by post, best lake around here for wakeboarding. 55 miles of shore line and all river, very smooth lake.. I have a 02 malibu right now but have a 2008 Moomba LSV fully loaded on order right now...

oh man that sounds awesome. My friends who is on the wakeboarding team here at Tech goes to the lake about 10 15 miles from campus. Dont know the name....but rivers r awesome...back home lake placid on the guadalupe is always smooth. I need to check that place out then.

Yeah they go to Buffalo Springs Lake it kinda small and gets choppy sometimes, good close lake though. Do you have your boat here in Lubbock....

no unfortunatly my dad wont let me at the moment. Though it would be safer in my hands than his. He already hit a stump on our lake. Had to fix the hull but supposively is stronger now than before. You goto school here at Lubbock or Tech?

02-08-2008, 03:52 PM

02-08-2008, 07:10 PM
We start to go around the end of April or the first of May.

02-08-2008, 08:51 PM
man i want to home so badly, my friend was talking about goin out this weekend.

Hey, I can't remember what specific wakeboards we had this summer, but they were all hyperlite. The bindings were not the best by the end of the summer, but they were used all day every day and in the sea!

I've heard good stuff about ronix boards!

If you are still looking for a board, go to www.boardersbestbuy.com . They have a deal today for a Ronix Frontier board with Scout bindings for $300 (MSRP $800). It is a one day only sale. I bought this board a few months ago and now anxiously waiting for the snow to melt to try it out. Hope this helps.

I got a Liquid Force Fish last summer from wakeside.com. It's a slightly weird, but good board with lots of pop and soft landings. I can finally, FINALLY do wake-to-wake jumps.

By wierd, I mean that it is short and wide. It is not for absolute beginners, as it is a bit loose when you are just cruising. Having practised on a wakeskate before, the Fish presented no problems for me in this regard.

That boardersmall.com website does seem to have really good prices. I just picked up a Ronix Vault 144 with Cabal boots package for $219 plus $40 delivery. From what I can tell, it is Ronix's version of the Hyperlite State, which someone on the board recommended to me, so it should be good.
