Right on Man! I would run with the Vahalla. For a all around board she a fun ride! Thanks for calling today man! I hope you find the right deck.

Are you riding more boat or cable? You have a lot of press and grind options, so I'm assuming cable. If it is primarily for boat, I would eliminate all of your choices except for the Vahalla, Axis, and possibly the X-Faction if you may do both. Are you looking at similar prices for all of these? I have a Local and I think it is an under-rated board, but primarily for cable. The rest of your choices with a grind base will just be heavier than the standard bases.

Im assuming, you ride more cable since the xFaction is a potential option. With that base-- it is a slow board.

If you want another CWB (slider friendly) board to throw into the mix, I'd recommend the Vibe or Saber. The Saber comes with deeper fins compared to the Vibe.

I've always had phenominal experience with them. Sean, Robyn and Collin all really know their stuff.

Ended up with a Slingshot choice with option bindings. To good a deal to pass up. The most fun I have had behind the boat on a wakeboard. Until I thrashed my bicep. bummed
