Okay so I started on a 3 stage, and went to a continous not Knowing. I was landing wtw 180's on my 3 stage, and then got the cont. board and couldn't land it. 3 exactly last yr. So I am going back to a 3 stage 136 jett. Anybody got any comments. I demo'd the jett, it was slow compared to the Team, but I guess I will just get used to it.

Can you try a smaller size in the Jett? I demo'd the 136 Jett and it was slow....maybe try the 132 if you need to stick with the Jett and LF. <BR> <BR>Are you open to other brands and boards?

The Jett is slower than the Team (3 stage vs continuous), but it all comes down to your personal preference. I like boards that are a bit slower... I find the jett is a perfect fit for me. Although after riding it for a few times I have found it does have some speed hidden in there somewhere <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

Sweet thanks guys. Jessica what size you riding. I just ordered the 136 the 132 I thought would have been slower, I am 5'6" and 134lb. Sweet. Hey Cris is the board faster without fins? I like the slowness because I have more time to pop. the team was just too fast my brain couldn't handle all the speed and I would just shoot across. I was not consitant either. <BR> <BR>Hey bsflower I was open to the Ronix krush, but I couldn't demo it. LF and hyperlite are the only ones you can demo. what are you riding? <BR> <BR>Thanks for your input girls!! I will keep you posted when I land my 180, and then I can try the FS 360

I tried several boards this year and when I got on the CWB Sapphire it was the board for me. Great pop, great speed and loose (I ride it finless). I highly recommend it to any female to give it a shot.

criswb 06-06-2007 2:02 PM

I havent tried it with fins... I have no idea! <BR> <BR>I am getting the Ronix Vault (part of the package I won) ill let you know how it rides... <BR> <BR>I've never tried any CWB boards but I would love to.. there are zero places to demo here, I just try the boards of everyone I know.

polhamus 06-06-2007 6:42 PM

He bsflower what kind of tricks are you working on? I thought about the sapphire, but the graphics weren't for me. I don't like the girlie girl. I wish I could have demo'd CWB. My first board was the inferno. Basically the absolute, they just changed the name that year. Now it's the faze.

tcluv85 06-06-2007 6:54 PM

Yeah, I liked the all white board and the bottom wasn't too girlie for me. But I also promote for Grizzly's the girls perspective, so I usually ride a girls board. <BR> <BR>Well I am working on making sure I am having fun out there. If I get too serious, I come back in the boat. I also teach people how to get up, recently introduced two new people who both got up on their first tries. All that is more important than a trick list to me. Beyond that, I am working on my w2w 180s (hopefully blind) and grabs. I started passing the handle behind the back with an ollie recently. And of course, I am a member of the ts w2w crew...I have watched the guys I ride with fight with it for 2 years, so I am taking it slow on that one. <BR> <BR>You should demo the Pure, very good board with a lot of pop. Have fun out there on whatever board you choose. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by tcluv85 on June 06, 2007)

So you have tried the Syn. How did that ride? I wish I could have demo'd more boards. Oh well I will keep you posted on the jett. I need to have more fun out there. But I want to do a amateur comp, just because I started riding at a late age. I get phsyco sometimes.

jkuzma 06-06-2007 7:43 PM

Hey Kim saw you pic can you be my Suger Mom please, Im' so in love with your boat uuhhmm I mean you...lol

tcluv85 06-06-2007 8:50 PM

I rode the Syn last year. Another board with good pop, but it was slow. <BR> <BR>I have been hanging out at the INT comps. I might try to put a run together for the July comp, but with my upcoming work travel, not sure how much I will be riding. I too started much to late in my life. My reality goal trick...360 and my dream trick....Raley.

iwannawkbrd247 06-06-2007 8:57 PM

cris, is the ronix vault the same board/shape as the krush?

iwannawkbrd247 06-06-2007 9:06 PM

oh, nevermind, i just checked the board reviews on here. it looks like they do have the same specs but the shape looks different.

polhamus 06-06-2007 9:27 PM

how old are you? I am 30. Raley awesome. I am thinking fs 360. What length do you ride at? Just wondering. I never felt like I had time in the air on my team board. I hope my board comes soon!

polhamus 06-22-2007 3:56 PM

Got the jett 3 stage, landed my 180. I am not leaving the wake early, I am so happy<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/talker.gif" border=0>
