|I'm looking for suggestions on a new board. I have an I/O with decent but small wake. A boat upgrade isn't happening until I pay off my some debt so in the meantime, I want to get the most out of what I have. My current board is a Motive and while it's really fun to ride, I'd like something with a lot more vertical pop. I knew that going in, but I got the Motive for $40 shipped and was in need of a board at that time. I'm just looking around and have found good deals on a Player, a Valhalla, and a Vault. Will any of these give me what I want or are there better alternatives? I'll probably be buying used and won't spend over $150 or so. I'm also 6'2" and 215lbs if it matters.|
|How about a Gator Board 137 for $160 shipped? |
|Try looking for an older Byerly 142|
|I saw the Gator. I'm trying to get clarification on the rocker. I see in some places it's listed as continuous and some places it's listed as 3-stage. How is the vertical pop on it?|
|Grab that Gator or keep an eye on BBB for a good deal on a board you like.|
|Pretty sure all of Harris' three stage rockers|
|fo sho. SAYS 2.7" continuous. i think the gator harris is the 3-stage pop your eyes out board. 2. |
ww says: 2.6" 3 stage.
I think for the money a gator is your board. the legend looks very close to what you need, if not it exactly.
|i have an 06 substance for $90 that has the abrupt 3 stage pop you are looking for. |
|Older Absolute. |
Gave me good pop off our I/O small wake.
|dante, i rode a Krown Brotherhood over the weekend. board seemed wider at the center and tip/tail. we had some weight in the boat, but it popped hard than i expected. I think it was in the 140 range. Not sure if they're still pressing them, but should be a steal.|
