So, I am looking at possibly buying a wakeskate for this upcoming season, and since the '08 styles came out, the Gator Boards are the only ones that really caught my eye as far as aesthetics go. I really like the look of the '08 Deuce Pop (http://www.gatorboards.com/SKATES/Deuce-Pop-41-br-Matt-Manzari-composite-bottom) and the '08 Pro Model (
http://www.gatorboards.com/SKATES/Pro-Model-42). The obvious difference I see between these two boards is that the Deuce Pop is a bi-level board. I've read that these boards tend to give more "pop" off of the water, but they look like they might be more difficult to ride as a beginner. Can someone explain the difference (pros/cons) of a bi-level skate vs a standard skate? Are there certain tricks that are harder to do on a bi-level? Is it harder to flip/spin?

Also, even though I don't like the print nearly as much, I ran across a great deal on the '07 Deuce Pop, and I was wondering if Gator changed much with the new model other than the print. With the new models out, vendors seem to be trying to almost give the older styles away.
