-   -   Going from a SOL to an Absolute (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=446127)

I had a B-day last week and got a gift certificate for the local boardshop so I stopped in today and got a deal on a left over from '05 CWB Absolute. <BR> <BR>So my question is what differences should I expect from the Absolute to my '06 SOL? Since I can't get out until Saturday I just thought I'd ask. I'm still a pretty new rider I was making wake to wakes and a few spins last summer and hoping the extra pop will help me progress some more this year. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wally247 on May 09, 2007)

wow thats awesome bro. the absolute is an awesome board. you should expect a lot more pop and a very consistent pop. that board does just about whatever you want it to. you can take it big into the flats or go wake to wake. sounds like a perfect fit for you riding style. have fun on it man

I thought SOL meant sh*t outta luck, I own a SOL, &amp; its a good beginner board. Anything is better.

my buddy rides an 05 absolute, its a good board for beginners all the way up to advanced, its cool cuz it kidna grows withya. i'm ridin an 05 parks, and i luv it, but i would definetey reccomend the absolute to anybody. its a GREAT board, no dissapointments that ive heard. pretty beefy pop on that sucker too. idk the CWB line from that year as well..but i know that the SOL doesnt have the most rocker, prolly woudl make it alot quicker into the wake. I know the Absolute's got 3.1 inches i think for rocker, and it cuts in a lil slower than some boards, but that also may have to do w/ some of the edging habbits, but i definetely knwo that that 3.1 is gonna boot ya <BR> <BR>(Message edited by hawkeye7708 on May 09, 2007)

Ive been riding the absolute for the past few years and I love it! it has really controlled pop, and decently soft landings too, it will definately be a step up from the SOL. good luck with it man!
