i learned to ride last summer and i'm ready to buy a board. i tried an 07 LF trip, CWB 07 Sapphire and Lotus. Overall the Lotus w/ the hinge bindings felt best, but i have been checking out the new boards for 09, hyperlite eden and syn, LF luna, Obrien vixen and ronix as well. Any suggestions or opinions?
as far as bindings go i like the hinge, my foot seems more secure and doesn't slide around....but what's the difference between open toe and closed toe bindings?
i know more guys than girls that wakeboard and would like a girl's opinion, thanks!
