yeah it was pretty funny that I posted on Dottie Raes post, i had no idea she was writing on here lol. Wondered why she always was borrowing my laptop at my apartment to "check stuff" and that stuff turns out to be wakeworld!

sdahockey21 12-26-2008 9:03 PM

that's classic. haha

yes yes - I know - I am the *best* - btw my name isn't Dottie Rae... it's really Jill and I am very, very sneaky! (Y'all might want to let your girlfriends read these couple few threads... it is so awesome how gracious people can be!! Thanks Joel &amp; Humanoid!!!) <BR> <BR>Also, congratulations on graduating Kevin and merry Christmas!!! BOOP!!!

kcrider 12-27-2008 7:27 AM

Dude you got a new Humanoid!!! Thats sweet! You know everyone here is going to want details. Is it a flex board or their non flex board. Does it have channels? Inquiring minds want to know

snowman89 12-28-2008 6:11 PM

Dude that's awesome. You should post some pics of the tips of the board if you can that would be cool. Cuz I think I remember hearing something about how humanoid was going to try to integrate bottom features with the flex technology. The sidewalls definitely look different.

wakebrdr38 12-28-2008 6:34 PM

anyone in dallas area that doesnt have their boat winterized and has a dry suit? I dont think i can wait till late march to try this out. "Dottie Rae" has the board right now and she is 4 hours away so I should be getting it from her next week some time. Ill try and give more details once i get my hands on it! I can tell you that there are bottom features. Ill definately keep yall posted!

hard to see, but i definitely see a center spine there. hmmm flex board with a center spine? that ought to be interesting. might rule out the argument completely, said by some, that "flex boards land hard on <i>flat</i> landings" ... we will see...

luke_j 12-31-2008 5:00 AM

you do know that lf has flex boards already in production with molded fins and bottom features, right?

joshbuzz 12-31-2008 9:23 AM

Yeah, but LF Press and other flex boards such as the ennen i believe, do not have the same construction as these or any of the other SS/company boards, thus not making it the flex board as these are considered. The Hype roam is flex to, but a different kind! <BR> <BR>GO SLINGSHOT!

wakebrdr38 12-31-2008 3:27 PM

the humanoid is a sandwich construction too like josh was sayin about the slingshots and company. super thin much like my slingshot recoil

wakerider111 12-31-2008 8:55 PM

i know about the LF line too, but like has already been said, they are a different construction. seems to be more of a "foam trying to be like flex tech" But this being said from someone who admits to not knowing a whole lot about their "flex" line. <BR> <BR>personally, i don't get the lf "flex" line too much... i don't feel like they are really voicing it, not like the obrien flex line for example, except for the press of course. <BR>kinda get the feeling that the only people that will know about Ennen's board and the other "flex" boards are the people that are "in the know" and read up on all the wake news ;)

luke_j 01-01-2009 11:01 AM

probably cause they know flex is not the future of the sport in its entirety. Flex has a place in wakeboarding, no doubt, but how many 10's have been hit on a flexboard? I'm not saying these boards don't perform, but I think the pvc core stuff (Dark core, nova core, FLY core) is where the true performance comes from.
