hey man, bummer to hear your systems aren't fitting great. you can try heat molding them with a hairdryer too, just point it down inside the boot on HIGH for 2 minutes then remove the dryer, put...

+1 for Accurate Flat line or A/X-Line. They float, resist tangles or twists, and will last for years and years.

the newer system boots ('13s and '14s) do fit much truer to size than the '11s/'12s. Im about a 9.5 in most skate shoes and i rode size 11 for the first two years (they ran a little small in '11 and...

Robert and Justin hit the nail on the head. Make sure you land on edge, and also make sure you land on both feet evenly.

When people say their board "slaps" the water if they land on both feet...

Just rode the SC the other day (with ~4k #s) and was definitely impressed. Same friends had an SA last year and the most noticeable thing for me was the added vert/upward pop that the SC delivered. ...

hey chris,

you are right about the gap being for the bridge on the older bindings. however, you will not notice any gap being under foot while riding, there is plenty of support and comfort to go...

The Hyperlite Indy vest is surprisingly thin and mobile, especially for a price point CGA vest. It is definitely worth a look, and the fact that they retail for around $60 is also pretty sweet.

Stephan - the old boots will work with the new baseless bindings, but not vice versa. The gap on the bottom of the old boot is okay, but the old bindings bridge will interfere with the flat bottom...

Jordan,

First off, congrats on the new boat. The axis definitely throws a solid wake. Im in the northern IL area and I would be down to come out and shred some time. I am usually able to ride...

Hockey laces work great, they are plenty long enough and they stay totally tight while riding. I put some in my '12 Murrays and just ordered some for my '13 Processes. They work perfectly and they...

the extra-time-to-put-on and stepping-on-upholstery arguments are kinda dumb, at least for me. Sorry to say. I put my boots and bindings on all on the swim platform and it takes me about 1 minute...

Gonna toss out a suggestion to check out the 2012 or 2013 Marek as well. It is similar to the franchise (which I love, btw) but its a little bit more locked in cuz of the larger fins, and changes...
