So im interested in the hyperlite vinyl wakeskate. Just curious if anyone has rode it and what they think of it....

its a decent board, its a bit like the catalyst, but wider heavier and griptape. i personally liked it, what else have you ridden or is this your first board? in my oponion its an all around a decent board

im on a 2008 catalyst right now. Just interested in the grip tape thing cause there similar boards

I'm gonna get either the Vinyl or the Cat 2.0 to use as a slider board for the upcoming season

Ya i was thinkin the same thing, which ever board i like better ill use for boat and the other for slider

Mitch, yeah I know I wish they did though I like the design of that board my buddy has one that's never been ridden that I'm thinking about picking up. <BR> <BR> <BR> I've heard the Vinyl is damn near bomb proof and I've seen people just beat the $h|t out of em so I'm pretty sure it'll hold up just fine as a slider board

The vinyl is a fun skate to ride especially if you like a heavier skate that rides high on the water. I would have to disagree that it is bomb proof, in fact I think it is probably the most delicate board I have owned. It is foam inside (Thus the amazing boyancy factor) and the edge blows apart very easily if it contacts a rail head on. I had one of mine split and had a buddy who had a similar blow out.....very fragile.
