Does the hyperlite 3DS have the same pop a 3 stage would give you? On the video on hyperlite's website it says that it will give you the same pop as a 3 stage and the speed of a continuous, but i'm not sure. Has anybody ridden the 3DS and 3 stage boards that have lots of pop (LF Shane, LF Axis, LF Watson, Ronix One, Hype Parks, CWB Transcend, Absolute, etc.) that they could compare it to?

Wakesetter, if your profile is up to date your 5'2" and 95 lbs, the smallest 3DS is a 135, might be a little big for you. It's a great board & for your size I would recommend a continuous rocker. Active Water Sports is running their demo days next month, come on out to Oregon City and try a bunch of boards, Alex will be there for Hyperlite and he can help you out.

When next month or is it all next month? Do they demo boards before the demo days? One last question do demos cost any $? My birthday is may 10th and i want to get a wakeboard for my birthday. <BR>Thank for the help

Wakesetter, It's the 19th or 20th of May, call Active Water Sports at the Beaverton or Oregon City store to be sure. It's free to demo all the boards they carry, LF, Hype, Ronix &amp; maybe Slingshot. I would call and get your name on the list, it fills up pretty fast. See you there.

Can I go to the shop and demo before that?

Don't know, call them.

Wakesetter, from what I've seen, H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEYSTICKS YES! I have two friends who just started riding the 3ds. Both came from different three stagers and both are going higher than ever before on their spins and inverts. Obviously you should demo first. But don't think that because it's continuous your pop will suffer. <BR> <BR>Oh, and just so you know I have an unbiased opinion, I ride the O'Brien Natural and think it's the greatest thing ever but I can't deny the progress in height my friends are making with the 3ds. I think it's maybe more that the board is so predictable that they're able to keep things under control at a higher altitude. IMO, Someone doing a 5 foot 360 is far cooler than someone blasting uncontrolably 6+ feet in the air and doing nothing other that trying to get the board back under control.
