I'm 200 Pounds, and finally had the heart to say goodbye to my first board. <BR> <BR>133cm 2000 Zane Shwenk pro model ; '03 Park's bindings <BR> <BR>Upgraded to <BR> <BR>140cm '07 CWB Marius ; '07 LiquidForce Transit bindings. <BR> <BR> <BR>Hopefully my new generation of CWB will treat me as well as my last one did. I was out for 2 summers with knee surgeries. Man have the bindings improved! <BR> <BR>Just wanted to share some excitement for the new setup... going to try it out Friday!

Dan You rode the hell out of your old setup. I cant wait to see what you are going to throw down on the new board and bindings. When we went out on Tobins boat I thought you had the oldest setup I had ever seen. Congrats on the new board and bindings. Are you going out saturday ? Tobin Said he will be back from pedro.

Tobin hasn't contacted me about Saturday. If he does invite me out ; I'll have to cut out early to the dock... Work always gets in the way of play.

sdmjr 09-05-2007 8:39 PM

Im going to give Tobin a call tomorrow to see whats up for saturday. Hope I see you out there.

wakemandan 09-06-2007 4:17 PM

Hey there's Josh! <BR> <BR>Maybe not the Whirly, but you'll probably get an an underwater raley or two.

And your posting on wakeworld 24 minutes before your off of work. I wouldn't expect anything less.

Dan, the Marius is an excellent board! I got one at the start of the season and absolutely love it! <BR>I haven't ridden the 08 model yet but I'm looking forward to getting one asap.

wkbrdr 09-07-2007 5:50 PM

that board is huge compared to the 133...good luck i have ridden both boards...

wakemandan 09-07-2007 9:39 PM

Ive got some mixed feelings about the board. I don't think i was taking the inverts as tall as i normally do. <BR> <BR>However; a few times the board launched me for a big indy grab over the wake. (I had a big smile on my face even before landing) <BR> <BR>Another thing that i noticed is that; although the board tracks well, it doesn't track as well as my old setup. <BR> <BR>And one more: I only threw one raley , but instead of taking me out into the flats, it kicked the board higher above my head. <BR> <BR><b>All in All</b> The boots feel great ; and the board will get it's second day tomorrow.

sweet... i may get an 08 marius! good luck today!!!

wakemandan 09-08-2007 2:35 PM

Well, same deal. Still throwing the inverts, but they're smaller. I just need more practice
