First skim board- Liquid force TC custom skim vs TripleX Composite Pr
Hey guys I need some helping deciding which surf board to buy. I have been riding a Hyperlite broadcast over the past year and want to upgrade to a decent skim board. Yesterday I go to try out the liquid force custom tc skim board for the first time and really liked it after riding it for a few different sets. I am also interested in the Triple X composite pro skim board due to the price and was wondering how it rides compared to the liquid force or which one is better? Right now I am working on 360's and airs and the liquid force I tested allowed me to spin easily. As of right now I have no way to try out a Tripple x so am looking for feed back on their skim boards or how they compare to the liquid force I rode. Any info or opinions would be appreciated. Here is a link to the liquid force I tested and a Link to the triple x I am interested in. Thanks

TripleX Composite pro (On sale for $299)

Liquid Force TC custom Skim ($400)

I've had a Triple X comp for the past 2 years. I really enjoyed it until I gotta new board, a Victoria Factor PCX. The factor really blows away the triple x, but for the price, you will enjoy the X.

Is the LF board a foam core board? If so, I'd get that over a Triple X

they are both foam core boards, Not sure what else they would be made of? Maybe you were asking if they are compression molded?

The triple-X board is a great board for the price, really it cant be beat. That being said there are many great high end skim boards out there

The LF TC is a hand laminated polyurethane/polyester board. Not all boards have foam cores and the core material/type of foam can vary a great deal.
The t-x comp pro also is a foam core, but eps, with bamboo veneer. They are both mid to low range skim boards. either is good for the price. The LF TC borrows from the old Crowley shape.
