|Here ya go |
|New Transcend and new Zeus boot. |
|The White Zues boots look SAWEEET!|
|I got to see some of the stuff..Super sick!! The new Transcend shape looks killer!!|
|Damn that looks awesome. Can't wait to see what the Marius looks like. Any idea if the Faction board will continue? The Kink looks pretty similar to it. If the Absolute got a deepened spine that might be the perfect board, the landings are the only thing that needed improvement. I see a Transcend with some Zeus' in my future!!|
|Maybe its just me... but does anybody see a similarity, at least from these pictures to the old Prodigy shape? I'm just basin this on what i can see here. |
Maybe I've been at work too long... but that kinda popped out at me.

|The kink and pure bases look very similar, and they both look alot like the faction shape, just based on how the molded fins look. |
And it looks like CWB has the adjustable fins like Gator as well.
|Jeff beat me too it. |
But here's more:
Did you notice the new Kink will come in 3 sizes
134cm 140cm 146cm

|Those are way better pictures J-Rod!! |
Looks like a great lineup for 09!!
|The new Transcend is sweet. I can't wait to get my grimmy mits on one. It still looks very similar to the old board. The tip/tail profile have changed a bit, the waist seems to be a tad wider, the spine runs all they way tip to tail and the fins are a bit longer. |
Should be sweet. Andrew said it pops harder, lands softer, and holds a better edge. What else could you want?
|The Prodigy is the greatest board ever made tho! Thats awesome if they bring that shape back|
|"Andrew said it pops harder, lands softer, and holds a better edge. What else could you want?" |
Pro's have been saying this about their models every year for the past 10 years!!

|The pure graphics are pretty cool.|
|Wasn't the kink based on the prodigy shape? And the pure on the absolute? new stuff looks dope fo sho. |
I've got a transcend i'm riding this wknd (i nthink 07). First time on a Cdub board and i'm looking forward to it. Are the fin extensions necessary? ridin a 3ds finless, so I'm thinkin not. Yea, it doesn't sound like the transcend has changed much.
|Anything on the new Answers or Marius?? can't wait to see what this gear looks like in person!!!|
|Can CWB PLEASE make the transcend in a 146! I would buy it in a heart beat!|
|Dang! i am totally Feeling a CWB Board this off Season as a new board anyone able to read what sizes the Transcend comes in??? It looks like 138 and 142 but i cant read the tiny blurry print anyone know?|
|Yes Kevin 138cm 142cm|
|Nacho, the Kink and Pure are the same shape wit ha different tip/tail profile. I think the Kink has a different glass layup to make it stiffer but don't quote me on that. Both are the older Absolute shape. You should be fine finless. |
Yeah I want to see the new Answers. Having tried quite a few boots this year, I am very happy with my Answers.
|Nacho, the Kink and Pure are both retired Absolute shapes. |
The lotus is based on the old Prodigy with mild modifications.
The sweetest top deck I have seen is the new absolute. Those white bands are material attached to the board...leather I think. In person, it's very attractive.
The Transcend got slightly deeper molded fins and a tip to tail spine. I can't wait to ride it.
|Anyone know when theyre supposed to release the '09 gear? Around what time of year do they normally let loose?|
|Right after the Surf Expo usually... its comin up!|
|john it will be showcasing at surf expo i believe thats the earliest that youll be able to get your new gear but im not 100% sure about that|
|Its funny were all like kids at christmas. Can't wait for the Jan boat show I feel the Zues & Transcend platty combo coming home.|
|Do most of you guys sell your old models to get the new one each year? I'm still rocking my oldschool 2007 Transcend. A new one would be sweet.|
|I strained my eyes a bit but the transcend "is 1/4 inch wider and that the center spine is the deepest ever made yet which will allow better landings and a quicker edge to edge feel." ... paraphrasing here. |
"soft landings" i sure hope so, with the "deepest" spine
any pics of it in the view of the other boards you posted, jrod. to show off that "deep" spine?
|The Transcends center spine will probably be similar to the 08 Factions. It runs literally from tip to tail and is very pronounced. It makes a huge difference. I rode the Absolute for ever and it could skip on you if you were a bit off. The Faction has the ability to mash out landings, you land a bit off and the board just absorbs the hit and lets you ride away.|
|I just finished the CWB 09 promo vid, actually less than two hours ago, with all the guys riding the new products. Wait till you see the marius, and I think this is Andrews best looking board yet|
|O and about the transcend this year, while filming Andrew on his new board Id never seen Andrew go so far into the flats before and all he kept talking about was how soft the landings are on his new board.|
|Jeremy, I saw the Transcend in person, but didnt get to take any pictures. The modeled fins also look slighty cupped. |
Here's a better shot of the Kink.
|damn, might just be the view of the pictures, but all thoes seem like they have some mad rocker.|
|Great looking lineup. Any pics of the Answer bindings or the Marius? Looks like CWB steered clear of the neon that we have seen from other companies. There is not much color in this lineup, but the graphics are pretty clean overall.|
|"Looks like CWB steered clear of the neon that we have seen from other companies." |
Thank goodness for that...although I love the Transcend regardless of look, all those neon colors on the other brands would have me running to CWB in a heartbeat. That being said, the one think you can say for the crazy colors, they really pop in riding photographs, white and especially black boards are fairly boring.
|damnit... I feel like I'm buying a computer.. i love my '08 marius and the way it rides and looks... 6 months later my stuff turned obsolete. sounds like my '08 just became a slider board, and my '06 shane just became a bench = /|
|I've been riding the 09 marius since june, it has no graphis on it. I'll take a pic and see if its ok to post it..|
|here is a vid j-rod posted. saw the marius in it. |
|any clothing, acc. pictures??|
|Did someone say Marius |
|so did they change the shape or tweak the Marius again for 09?|
|NICE! Is that the Foam or Platy? Really diggin the graphics.|
|That is dope. Any idea what the Answers look like?|
I don't think they tweaked the Marius for 09, but I haven't had one in my hands yet so don't know for sure.
|09 Marius Plat, this is the best pic I have for now.|
|Just for you Big Heavy |
|Marius Platy with 2009 Zeus...thats money. But those Answers are money too...tough call. whats the diff between the 2009 zeus and 2009 answer?|
|CWB def wins for the best graphics this year, not only color wise.|
|I am liking the graphic on the foam Marius. The Platty also looks nice. If I were buying bindings, I would probably go with those Answers.|
|does anyone have any pics of the fin setup for the KINK??? |
What about some better pics of the transcend and Zeus??
|Jerm, the Zeus has a slightly higher wrap as well as a piece that is attached to the toe piece that stiffens the overall boot. |
Thanks Innov8. I'm super stoked on the Transcend, smoother landings sound awesome!! That and some Answers and I am set!!
