I don't know. Those transfers are pretty huge and there is a lot of potential destruction. There is no doubt that Henshaw is one of Alliance's golden-boys, but he is also a great rider too. There are...

I rode the Timebomb in 2012 and then switched to the bill/william shape. I haven't ridden the new time bomb, but it would take a crowbar to get me off my William.

I really liked the code too, but...

Not in recent years, but it is not impossible. It is not the high end tricks that destroy you. By the time you are working mobes and big spins, you are skilled enough to dodge 99% of nasty falls. It...

Zero!!!!! Especially 2007-2014.

Well, maybe some. If you just upgraded and spent a lot of money, you will probably use it more. That will make you a better rider.

My insurance went up from $560 to $870 this year. My out of pocket and coverage is the same. Hooray! I guess I picked up mental health which is great. Maybe I won't go postal if I go visit a doctor.

The 14 is supposedly a little softer, but I've ridden and pressed both. They felt about the same. The shape is exactly the same.

+1 on the Bill. It is a killer wakeboard and if you find yourself in a park ever, it will do work there too. Go 2013 or later. That shape is faster and easier to ride than the previous shapes.

The Watson is easily one of the best shapes of all time, but it is a bit on the slow side. Especially coming off a board like the Angel, it is going to seem super slow. If you want to stay in the LF...

Any paddle sport, SUP, kayak, prone is great low impact way to stay ready for the pull of the handle and something fun for the whole family. I see decent yaks on Craigslist all the time for $100.

It is a photo taken from the off-side from the rear. Most pros set the wake to peel directly behind him and the off-side will always break over because he is pulling from the other side.

A good set of boots last about a season if you ride alot/hard. I've never had a pair of any manufacturer last longer. I'll put in a solid 100-150 days a year though.
