Is the new LF Trip the old Substance?
I loved the substance and have been thinking about getting a used one. I was looking on LF's website and the new Trip looks ALOT like the substance. Does anyone know if they are the same mold?

There once was a board that was called the Trip, one of the most monumental boards in wake history. It went away for a few years and resurfaced as the LF Team board. A few more years went by and the Team was now gone and the Trip resurfaced with molded in fins. It's the same as it always has been, except it has molded in fins. Probably the best board on the market at $299 retail with bindings. Love that board. Hope this helps.

To add
The Substance was Watson's ride until he got his pro model. I think the Trip and Substance are different enough you may want to check out the Watson Classic, or some of the other 3 stagers

I have this this (2006 138) sort of not serving me any real purpose.


It was a replacement for a 138 Omega, but the time I got it, I had gotten to like the board I ride today. It's only been ridden twice, both times at KCW. I'm just letting you know. I never even thought about getting rid of it.

The Trip has been in the LF lineup every year since 1999. Never went away. Its been a similar shape every year, four molded in fins (early years were removable) . 2 removable center fins. Continuous Rocker. The newer ones have a more aggressive continuous rocker. Team was considered a "super" trip., still continuous rocker. The substance is a three stage rocker. The newer ones probably ride more like the substance than the older trips, but there probably is still a difference. I've ridden a 07 trip (redesigned in 08, more aggressive rocker and longer molded in fins i think) and an 04 substance. Boards were not alike. The watson classic might be your best bet to get something closer to the substance characteristics.

Necrason + original Trip = Circus Elephants.
