Micah, no need to respond all douche like. Aren't most boat dealers also purveyors of wakeboards? I work with three marinas. One of which is 2 hours away. All depends on what I am after.

I always recommend an Oracle from Humanoid. It handles great in the water but is a little slow coming off of the wake, you have to wait for it a little bit it seems. It really is a compromise for...

They are likely even owned by a major company (who ever owns Liquid Force) and are made in the same factory. They do that in the snowboard industry a lot. It helps reduce the engineering over head by...
