Hey Guys, <BR> <BR>I'm looking to buy a new skate. I do have a Catalyst for sliding but I can't do surface tricks with it. I think the catalyst is more for behind the boat. <BR> <BR>So I'm a beginner in tricks. I ride it behind a jetski or cable not behind a boat. <BR> <BR>I can buy: <BR> <BR>HL Byerly Legacy <BR>HL Phriction <BR>LF Faction <BR>LF Free Motion <BR> <BR>Which skate should I buy?

The Legacy has a real loose finless feel to it and has great pop. The Faction is thin and rides low in the water. Do you like the wood feel or the composite feel? I just got a Vinyl 108 and it is the best I have ever ridden (I've only been riding 2 seasons) There all nice skates but there is a lot of difference in the ones you listed. If you want a wood deck I hear Oak and Integ are the best.

I don't prefer a wood or an composite feel. I had a lot of trouble with the pop. I can't pop high enough with my catalyst to try a pop shuvit(The board is to big). I want a board that has good pop. I don't know if the new Byerly give me easy pop so I can try tricks. Are just the simple Faction <BR> <BR>These are the only skates which I can buy in The Netherlands

The Leagcy has alot of pop. Its a little tougher to do shuvs and stuff because its a heavier board. I really didn't like the faction but I prefer a more buoyant (composite) board. I believe a wood board is probly easier to do flip tricks with but I have only landed a couple so I'm not the most qualified to say.

Alright! <BR> <BR>I just landed a shuvit 180 on my Catalyst so isn't the Legacy to hard for me, What about the Faction or the Anthem. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by robin_holland on June 06, 2007)

Go with the Anthem or the Legacy 39 (I have the 42 and its a lil big). See if you can demo them before you buy.

Alright thanks, It think I go with the legacy.

I'm still doubting between the Legacy 39 and the Impulse 40 kyle walton because: I have ridden a Jobe 111 flatskate but it doens't float me anymore to pull me out of the water, because I use boat with 15hp. So I did buy the Catalyst 112 but I'm worried that the impulse or legacy don't float me enough because of there length. Are they? Which board will floats me the most?
