Best Molded/composite wakeskate???
 
Hyperlite Model G vs. Byerly Revival vs. Liquid Force Mod

I had a LF Impulse, but it started splitting pretty bad after 3 months and need something more durable

Its mostly W2W riding

Comments?Ideas?

Integrity/Mutiny make the most durable skate and it rides incredible. www.integrity-wake.com

Out of the three you listed, the Mod is the best shape. But as a lot of wakeskaters will agree, they just dont ride as well as wood skates. And the shapes arent that great.

Integrity/Mutiny uses a wood core to give it a lively feel, but it is in a fiberglass composite sandwich with urethane rails so it is super tough. The foam is even closed cell foam, so if you drill a hole in it, it wont absorb water.

I rode integrity skates for years and they are incredible. Now I'm riding a Remote which is full wood.

Can I buy the Integrity skates anywhere other than the Integrity website? Also, what size should I get?- Im 151 lbs and 6 feet 1 inch, mainly boat riding

The liquid playground in San Jose, CA is the only Integrity dealer, but I think they don't have any stock right now. So you would have to order direct. Sometimes there are used ones on wakeskating.com

The 39 or 40 would be good
