I've ridden both pairs (2019s). I actually liked the supremes and I usually don't like strappy bindings. A lot of guys at the cable park swear by the step-out kind.

That said. The RXT are my...

You have to respect these boats for what they are. They are over the top. It is a testing ground for new technology that will trickle its way down into the everyday models. Only a few of these boats...

I'm with denverd1. I experienced this on a buddies X-Star years ago and we decided that we were running a little bit truer on speed--We weren't pulling the boat down as much on our approach. I'd...

If you are that strong of a rider, I dare you to try a proper boat board. You will crap your pants. And Oka's board is made of wood, but it is rock hard. That is why he has two boards...

They do breakdown and they are never that snappy to begin with. Over the years, I have had friends swear by sandwich construction boards, but one set on a stiff board and they are going to the moon....

I'm a Ronix guy and I will say no. A developing rider needs access to speed and consistency. The cambers buck hard, but they rely a super strong driving edge. If you come off edge it stops. You need...

The "disaster waiting to happen" is actually what draws a lot of us to the sport. If we were afraid to get broke-off every once in a while, we'd be wake surfers. The risk makes the reward all the...

I've always been a 24-25" guy on boat and cable (pretty moderate and usually the center stance). I am a firm believer that it is all about the right stance for your physiology. Kyle Schmidt had a...

Very true. Physiology plays a big role. I'm 5-9 and ride a 23" stance. That is all the way in on my board (139 Happy hour). 23-24ish has always felt comfortable for my legs. A big board with a...

I think bigger boards are definitely beneficial up to a point for a developing rider, but I haven't found going over the top to be that beneficial.

The 2015 redesign of the one was a vast improvement over the 2012, IMO, and the 2018 redesign is even easier to ride. The 2012 was a weird shape. Super round rails paired with a locked in feel.

Tyler--Best Boat
Felix--Best park/winch
Gunter--Best overall

Tyler's section was my favorite to watch personally, but if I take an objective approach, Gunter wins.
