2012 Boards
 
hey guys what new boards have you spotted around the traps?

TheHebrewHammer 07-11-2011 5:42 PM

There's the new Austin Hair pro model and the 2012 Franchise that have already been posted on here, as well as Lyman's final Slingshot pro model, but I haven't personally spotted any.

d4m0 07-11-2011 7:02 PM

Ive seen the CWB, LF, JOBE and CTRL boards for 2012 at the dealer showings over here in Aus :P hehe

beretta5spd 07-11-2011 7:10 PM

Heyyy, whatchu tryna' say? :mad:

Just kidding. I actually don't like those 2012 graphics as much as my 2011, which looks sick, but I'll wait until I get a good picture of it.

Jeff 07-20-2011 4:17 PM

On a related note when do the next years boards typically release? I'm holding out for a killer deal on a 2010 slingshot Recoil w/ RAD bindings

aBoMoFo 07-20-2011 4:37 PM

Looking back at the 2011 thread it was around the last week of July that marketing material started coming out. I think the Ronix brochure download link popped up on August 2nd. Not sure about the Slingshot stuff.

mtownrydr 07-20-2011 4:58 PM

When will 2011 stuff start going on sale? I want the 2011 lf vantage closed toes but def dont wanna pay $350-$400 for em.

What size foot do you have and what condition RAD's are you looking for. I have a pair and I'm not a huge fan of them. They are size 10, have been used for about 2.5 months, and are dyed black. I was planning on just eating the cost but I'd be happy to help you out. Shoot me a message if you want.

Marek and systems
http://www.facebook.com/HyperliteNor...type=1&theater

07-21-2011 10:30 AM

2012 systems will have a new toe cap and lockable highback.

cjh1669 07-21-2011 10:32 AM

Tahts good news, the toe strap on the current one and the high back not being locked up is a serious pain

jason95gt 07-21-2011 10:54 AM

I feel that the toe cap is a step back as being right on top of your feet makes a major pressure point. I thought they were going to the burton over the toe cap.

cjh1669 07-21-2011 10:58 AM

The big problem I have with them is something the toe cap can fix. The harder falls I take cause the high back to slip back and the toe strap to go under my boot. It's a big pain get it back in the water. Also the ladders on these things break loose too easy, I came completely out of the binding last night on a wreck

ponder86 07-21-2011 12:07 PM

I have came out of them numerous times. I'm glad they actually release though, otherwise some of the falls would have hurt a lot more.

I'm pretty sure that is what is meant by "toe cap". Right now it would be called a "toe strap", simply going over the top of the food, while a "toe cap" implies over the front of the toe as well, pushing down and back. Burton isnt the only company doing that.

Don't see toe caps though. I'm thinking I'm going to switch to burton EST bidings from system. Much better all around

ilboarder12 07-21-2011 7:44 PM

Chris, if you end up trying the burton est binders let me know how you like it, been wanting to try those on one of the new slingshot boards

TheHebrewHammer 07-21-2011 8:02 PM

So wait, people are putting snowboard bindings on wakeboards now? Cool!

benjaminp 07-21-2011 8:30 PM

Its happened a few times before, Alliance had a video of someone riding a Response in the snow, and there have been a couple threads on it, one of them fairly recently.

TheHebrewHammer 07-22-2011 9:15 AM

If I could demo one board right now it would be the Paradigm!

waketx05 07-22-2011 2:09 PM

I heard the witness grind was getting re-designed for 2012.. any LF insiders??

mtownrydr 07-22-2011 5:50 PM

The witness will remain unchanged...only difference is it is not benny g's pro model anymore. He is not considered one of their global team riders anymore...which I think is stupid. Pros like him and lyman that have been around and are Pretty much freeriding legends shouldnt be disrespected like that. I know times are tough and keeping the top contest riders is a high priority but taking a name off a board that he helped shape and design and promote is silly to me. Wouldnt be surprised to see him on a humanoid board soon.

TheHebrewHammer 07-22-2011 6:43 PM

Damn :( Ben G rules. Hopefully things will work out for him.

Did you read the article he wrote in latest alliance wake mag on behalf of Lyman? there was some criticism and near finger pointing type tones in there. GREAT read. definitely felt closer to Lyman, especially when it came to feeling like a out-cast because of a no tolerance to partying thing. Ive missed out on some opportunities to find thirds or be a third because i either shied away or because i was not included because of this kind of thing.

hawkeye7708 07-23-2011 7:04 PM

Greenwood isn't a Global rider anymore? Wow... that really is disrespectful.

Hell ya, I read that. I was already a huge fan of Lyman and Ben, but man, Ben is a class act!

Phallanx whole line of boards

Humanoid 1up board

saw this on SINE wake's facebook page a month or two back
doesn't look like the current SINE boards

dgs 07-24-2011 8:18 PM

......So you sell a bunch of boards through being a top rider/ coach (and a great guy) have the best Pete/ Ole 7/ Method in the industry- and you get your name taken off the board you helped design. That at best is insulting

mcane6 07-24-2011 8:21 PM

I talked to waston while he was on our boat at PWT in acworth about his 2012 boards and he said his 2012 hybrid is the best/ sickest he has ever put out.

geoffIsring 07-24-2011 8:58 PM

I've ridden a ton of boards and nothing is as forgiving and pops as much as the Harley... Spins better than anything in the world and absolute insane pop!

MattAlz33 07-24-2011 9:22 PM

waketx05 07-26-2011 1:22 PM

Wow, thanks for the tip! Sick stuff! The grey toes on the Harley boots make them look like orthopedic shoes :D

Foosh's stuff looks ill

flydenrict 08-03-2011 7:19 AM

Good find! I like harleys boots a ton more than this year's. At least they dont look like the shoes i wore in 2nd grade with pink and blue all over them. Love the new stuff, especially the vantages and shanes.

I LOVE the graphics on my Harley and I get a lot of compliments on it, but clearly it's not for everyone.

I wouldn't go that far, but ya, they're a little too cheesy for my taste. Too much neon maybe, I dunno. A lot of these look cheap. Some of them are awesome though. I really like the look of the new Franchise.

There is also a few more shots of the B-Side and a Harley's deck on wake2wake.ca

flydenrict 08-04-2011 11:12 AM

Not really feeling the Ronix stuff. I guess i dont like lime green. The orange ones gotta be the Franks right? the stiching pattern matches this year's

captain_vilfo 08-04-2011 11:42 AM

the white ones look alright I guess basically the same thing as my white 11 ones lol If it aint broke dont fix it i suppose

captain_vilfo 08-04-2011 11:43 AM

although I must admit, the bright orange ones caught my eye.. even though id never spend 400+ bucks on them

Performance ski & surf officially began selling the 2012 Ronix boards/bindings today...check their site.

digg311 08-04-2011 4:34 PM

I hope the Ronix pictures went away because they weren't real... wasn't feelin' the look of any of those boards.
