I don't know how it rides, but she did just win the pro tour stop in Ackworth!!! If you decide to buy one, let me see what kind of price Performance would give a friend before you purchase elsewhere.

Really? thanks Kat! Evo gear has the 2010 for 253. free shipping and everything. I know she just won, she is my fav rider, and I have her boots just not her board. I will fb you

Hi Kim, I've tried it a couple of times and almost bought one.... It is super poppy, really light, and a lot of fun.
The few things that made me pause though, was, because it's a hybrid flex board, it can sometimes be a little unpredictable off the wake. It also tends to be loose when it's not on edge.
Also the 2nd time I tried it it had fins in, and I couldn't for the life of me get it to unlock to do a bs slide or surface bs 180. It was stuck to the water like glue... I need another try without fins before I'll be able to talk myself into it I think.
But, it is really fun, and really poppy! I'm sure you'll love it once you've spent some time getting used to it :)

Hi Alice, Thanks for the tips. Right now I ride the Jett, and I am not sure if I want to change boards. But I am glad you told me this info.
I think I was just looking for change. But I need to stick with my Jett.
