Alright my buddy is now saying the Arcane is not what he likes. Rode it a few times and tried to give it a chance, but it was way too heavy and slow. Thats just his opinion

i saw one of these at M2 on Lake Conroe and the thing is HUGE. i can't imagine how it isn't slow and hard to move based on how big and heavy it is. haven't rode one though, so...

I just talked to my buddy who got one and then returned it the same day. Like I told him that it was heavy and bulky, but he is hardheaded and had to see for himself. And like I mentioned, he said that it was super slow and heavy and not as easy to spin or get air. the one time he did get air the board popped up and hit him on the shin giving him a nice purple/black spot. I do not ever seeing that board in my quiver.

Worst board I've ever ridden, slow, heavy, and doesn't fit in any of my wakesurf racks. I'd look elsewhere if I were you.

A durability test with various wakesurf boards. The winner: the Arcane.

Jack I'll keep the Arcane in mind when I'm ready to karate chop a wakesurf board.

So sad. The Arcane is a fun surf driven shape but it is a little heavy for my taste. I couldn't get it to pop like the custom. I have one of the first 4'10" boards ever made. It is dented and even cracked in the middle but it hasn't broken.

I am stoked to see the next video. Slingshot is going to put the Arcane up against the Hyperlite Swell, Byerly Hazard, Ronix Cortez and Liquid Force Venture. I heard they are going to get Hong Kong Phooey to make a cameo. We will see who comes out on top.

Rode the Arcane last night...

I actually found it very fast. It may just have been the wake we were on was very steep (Epic 23v).

Yes, it is very heavy compared to other good surf style boards. It took a lot of effort to get the board into the air. The tail design was my favorite part, it turned on a dime, almost thought I'd be able to do some cut backs. The Epic wake is very steep and really easy to pearl other boards but I didn't get this one to pearl once. The one advantage I found for the thick design.

Would be a board I'd ride again for sure.
