What kind of board do you prefer at the Cable Park?
 
Do you prefer a flex board or a stiffer board? Why? Just curious what you people are doing and thinking.

I prefer a flex board just cause I think it's more fun. I've been riding the watson hybrid this year and I love it. It's perfect for rails and it's great for air tricks as well.

haven't done alot of cable i rented a witness grind i liked it . i bought a ps3 and it's okay. i've heard that the vibe is a great board for cable. i think that will be my next cable board.never ridden a flex unless the slingshot i rented at mccormicks was a flex. it felt a little loose to me. but overall okay.

definatley try a stiff board a flex board and/or a hybrid board. Everyone has a different opinion. Demo or borrow any company, slingshot, a cwb vibe or a Lf Flx, or stiff really try any board and they lf watson hybrid is really the only hybrid board ive seen at the cable

Slingshot were the first to bring on the "flex" and just about every company has an option for flex (or will have one)

hybrid watson and melissa's board (for the ladies or smaller guys) are the only "hybrids" boards that have significant flex AND noticable bottom features
the humanoid boards might count as hybrids too

sine wakeboards flex good too, but are not designed for rails, and i think i recall them designing a rail specific board, but it is not out yet?

ronix is bringing out the phoenix project. hyperlite was testing one. and LF i think will be adding some more hybrids to their line. that watson hybrid i bet will get voted number one board this year for the sales and reviews it has gotten
