So I was just curious on everyones thoughts about this board.. Everything I read says soft landings which I understand, since it has mad width and the vtec, but what confuses me is that is says "huge pop". However, It has a continuous rocker. It just doesnt seem like it would have near the pop of a three stage, but thats why am asking... according to the wakeside chart it looks to be more of a into the flats board, but the discription talks about trevor effortlessly being able to boost a back 5 eight feet high because of the pop. Right now I am on a 07 lute and am very happy with, just curious your thoughts. Thanks guys <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by lyle on June 13, 2007)

I haven't ridden a Marius, but from what I understand the majority of the pop comes from the great width of the board.

I love it!!! I have it on my myspace if you go into my profile and click on the link. I dont know if the 08 can hold up to the 07 IMo

For a continuous board the Marius has a noticeable kick off the wake. It is so wide that is just launches. It will ride a lot different than the 'lute. It has more kick than any other continuous board out there. The V-tech allows it to still be manueverable because if it carried all that width and had a flat bottom it would not turn or keep the tail engaged in the water.

what about fins, I ride my absolute finless. I see on the board that the molded fins are pretty small, and so far apart (because of the width). I was just curious if it would be too loose.

spin2win 06-13-2007 7:16 PM

I ride the marius finless. Its superloose. (PERFECT) I just rode the roam and I sucked on that. so the marius def. has more grip

dlwsrider 06-13-2007 7:19 PM

yeah because the marius is so wide, it allows it to not only have massive pop, but softer landings. <BR> <BR>a great combination.

Just wondering, but out of all the CWB boards, which one do you guys think has the highest pop?

wakeslife 06-13-2007 8:39 PM

probably whatever rider has the best technique <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

dadthedriver 06-13-2007 8:57 PM

transend platty has the most pop

dlwsrider 06-13-2007 9:43 PM

be careful with the plattys though, my friend got one last week and it snapped in half monday

spin2win 06-13-2007 10:01 PM

Ive broke 2 this year but they are great with warrenty.

stephan 06-14-2007 9:13 AM

I've never broke one in the two years I've been riding platinums.

Heavy - Have you ridden a 3DS? I would be willing to say it boots just as much if not more than a Marius...which you mentioned had the most pop of any continuous rocker board. I demoed both and bought the 3DS. No worries, just curious if you had been on one. <BR> <BR>I agree with Roddyrod, pop has more to do with the rider than anything else.

CWB Kicks A$$ but the marius feels like a huge a$$ block under my feet. Has anyone ridden one on a windy day and done a raily. The board feels like a freakin parachute catching wind. Not a fan it has great pop and landings but lacks manueverability. IMO for spinning inverts it just takes a little more effort than a board with a LITTLE less surface area

stephan 06-14-2007 10:21 AM

I have indeed and felt it had nowhere near the pop of the Marius. Pop certainly has to do with the rider and I prefer an aggressive 3 stage, the Marius &amp; continuous don't work for my style.

dadthedriver 06-15-2007 5:02 PM

The wind was really blowing hard this day. So now I understand. The wind got under the board and because of the short shorts lack of drag Tony went higher then the riders on the other boards <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/463611.jpg" alt="Upload">
