I figured that since they have one in the wakeboard forum. Then we should have one too.

I will start off

left to right

4'6" Doomswell Nubstep
4'8" Doomswell Bigstep
4'5" Doomswell Drone

and a 5' Doomswell Bigstep on the way

One of a kind skim. 3/8" devinylcell (not exactly sure what density) and three layers of carbon fiber. It finished out at 1/2" thick. 53 3/4" x 21 5/8". It's ugly as sin but when you're riding it, it looks like a great white shark under your feet. I'm calling it "Whitey".

if you look a the tail the way it is shaped and where it starts is diff. For me i thing the nubstep is faster and has for pop off the lip than the drone. But they both sort of ride the same. I just like the feel of the Nubstep better and plus thats what all the team riders for Doomswell ride.

Just got myself my first board this winter. Got it used as a factory return, apparently less than a month of use on it. Looks mint.

Wavezone Boost skim style board 3'9". Yes I'm a little weird. I love myself some small boards.

It has a fin. In the second pic, if you look at the right side towards the tail, you will see a single fin in the center.

ok i see it. blended in with the board

fence_sence 04-24-2014 12:36 PM

Ya, standard skim fin. I still need to profile that one to the bottom of the board. I think it would actually ride ok without it. It's uncannily stable. It's also fast. The one time I've was able to ride it at the end of last season, we got up to 13.7mph before we went over a little sand bar that was about 3' down and and wake just fell apart. The lake was really low and we decided that that was a little too close for comfort to continue with speed runs. I was impressed though.

No clue yet, haven't gotten out this year. I will definitely be posting about it though.
If it's anything like my friend's 4'0 React surf style, it should be very buoyant being it's a foam and fiberglass board, not compression molded or similar. It should also be very responsive to minor weight changes and quick, but hopefully not too slippery.

I bought it because of riding his 4'0 React. Once you had found the sweet spot on the board with your footing and center of gravity, all you had to do is shift your weight slightly and it would do what you wanted. It was as if you think it and it does it. I'm hoping this board will behave similarly.

I will be sure to post pics and video when I get out on it.

^^^ Whoa! Bonzer! That's a pretty radical lookin machine, Nick. Do you usually ride it with all 5? Those traction(?) pads almost look like Bamboo. Yes/no?

fence_sence 04-24-2014 10:37 PM

Damn. Then you drop the rest of the quiver. Sweet looking nose rider. Got any rail shots of it?

Chaos 04-24-2014 11:01 PM

Fence Sence, the top patch is bamboo, Eco versions of 'carbon' tail patches
I have ridden it as a 5 finner, but generally prefer it as a quad... or at least I normally ride it as a quad, however the other day I took it out as a thruster and really dug it.

The spooner is crazy fun... lets just say the rails do a lot of different things... mix of performance down turn and old school 60/40 planers near the nose...

jdhart73 04-24-2014 11:03 PM

As soon as Nick sends me the 3 I just ordered I will post up!

I think the bamboo is a wax top board?

Chaos 04-24-2014 11:08 PM

Jake, the first one is a surfboard, ocean surfboard. It can be ridden behind the boat, but I never have. A lot of people like to ride normal ocean surfboards I have made them behind the boat. It have a tail pad on it now, but yes it is a wax on top board.

Ahh, it is a tail patch. It almost looks like it has some thickness to it. Almost like cork. Just an optical illusion now that I l look at it. I love the application of an eco equivalency. Bitchin. It looks like a fast deck.

Oh sure, secret squirrel spoon. I could literally look at those things for hours. There's so many different elements that flow into one another. They are beautiful. But if you don't want to show the business end, I'll understand. :rolleyes: ;)

Whatcha got? I've been given some serious looks to Doomswell, Shred Stixx, and Soulcraft. Finding it hard to justify a large purchase ($500 +), at least for me, without demoing it. 4' 4" - 4' 6".

BenHolloway 04-27-2014 9:10 PM

We have a 4'5" and a 4'6" jetty fang you can demo either at the WCO or when ever your over here in the C.O.

Zimme, the Brigade is a 4'9" it may be for sale if you or someone you know is interested PM me.

phathom 05-14-2014 10:59 PM

Update for those who wanted to know.
I rode my new board for the first time today, the 3'9" skimboard I bought. Well we have too steep of a wave and the fin in the back wasn't doing anything because of it being so small. Needless to say, riding a board without a fin tracking in the water is really squirrely. I'm sure it would work well on a flatter wake, but not well for us. I am looking into finding and swapping on a bigger fin to correct for this. Any input is welcomed.

ReSession 05-29-2014 4:09 AM

I'll play :)

Here's my current quiver...a few boards aren't pictured as they're down at the lake house.

  • 2013 IS KF Surf
  • 2013 IS Flyboy BigBoy (not pictured)
  • 2012 Shred Stixx Custom Hazen Carbon
  • 2012 IS KF Skim
  • 2012 Liquid Force Custom
  • 2011 Flyboy Prototype
  • 2011 IS Flyboy (Rasta traction, my go-to board)
  • 2010 IS Moss 4Skim
  • 2010 Phase 5 Drew Danielo (not pictured)

Past boards that have found new homes include the IS Sweet Spot Pro, IS Mucus and O'Brien Alias.

The best board I've ever ridden. I'm so stoked on this board

2014 Victoria Skimboards Factor PCX

phathom 06-16-2014 10:23 PM

Second update:
Rode my small wavezone skim again when we dialed the wake better. I was able to freeride it and it tracked fine, not nearly as squirrely now that I could put more weight on the back. It did take some effort and I line rode most of the time, but was able to freeride it. I was able to pull my first spin, a surface 360 on it lineriding. It got me wanting to ride skim style more and to slim down to get to a lighter weight for the board and encouraged me to get a gym membership to do so.
It is definitely a fun board. I'm even thinking of trading it in to the manufacturer for credit towards one of their bigger boards. They do offer a buyback/trade in program, which is cool. I'm just not sure if I want to get one of theirs or get something else, maybe a Victoria.

This is the first year that I'm trying wax, and I'm really liking it. I feel the board better and I am confident landing tricks because I know that no matter where I land on the board I'm going to grip. I now know why real surfers and skimboarders don't use front traction pads, it just feels better.

I put an arch bar down the middle last night, so I'll see how that goes. I'm just messing around and figuring out what I like.

I have only ridden a Doomswell Drone Squash tail and I'm freaking in love. I want one SOOOO bad. It literally took me to a while other level in my riding... But they are quite expensive. Just send me your Drone please!

The only thing I don't like about wax is the mess it leaves in the boat. That's why I'm a big fan of full deck traction. This is my first season running the Agenda traction and I absolutely love it. I just wish it came with a few more pieces so I could fill up some of the blank areas. Other than that, the material is awesome. Super grippy and really soft.

wakemitch 06-18-2014 11:06 AM

When I'm not riding it goes back in my bag. It's a reflective bag which keeps it cool inside.

I found agenda too soft. My feet would slide around too much. I'm a big fan of Dakine. It's hard and grippy. It's not that comfortable for long rides, but my foot is a lot less likely to slide past the kick pad on airs.
