I cant remember if this is true or not so thought id ask all you guys and gals. I have a problem with riding my boards pretty hard. I like landing in the flats. Point is i broke my shane got a new one, been riding it for maybe 2 months and it feels like its lost its kick. We had bout 2900lbs in our b52 yesterday huge wake and my board felt like it was not only losing pop but even riding slower. Had this problem in the past due to a crack down the center of my board but i checked it and its fine. No cracks no nothin. whats the deal

Not sure Dave. I had the same problem with an older Byerly DNA. The board broke right on the spine and it felt like I was riding a wet noodle with a anchor dragging behind it. It sound like you might have another broken board on your hands.

thats whtat im thinkn chief. im wondering if just cause i cant see a crack doesnt mean its not broke. It feels exactly like you said a wet noodle

Yeah, the cracks could be internal and just didn't pierce the top or bottom sheet.
