By double decker do you mean a Bi-Level?

and

Ronix, Gator Boards, Liquid Force (kinda sorta) are making bi-levels at the moment.

Ronix hasnt started shipping yet, but the Zariel is going to be a sick skate.

Gator Boards has the Duece pop, and i personally havnt rode one but i hear that its solid.

LF has the SST, and i put kinda sorta, because it becomes a bi level at the tip and tail, so that you can focus your pop where its needed, but the SST is hard to come by, my boardshop sponser just got their first 07, weird i know.

mhm, they were, rathy is super chill.

im going to be screwed if he wins that bet

scott a, word
Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       12-17-2007, 7:22 PM Reply   
yes, but wouldnt it be easier to qualify at a pro tour stop?

and if i thought the pro tour was bad, i might as well light my board on fire and call it over at the toe jam

There is no wakeskating at the pro tour. That's sorta one of the reasons why the Toe Jam is a "tour" now.

Maybe im completely wrong here but is he talking about Obrien's Bi-level or atleast last years. I think it was called the Obrien Traffic Double D or something.

Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       12-19-2007, 4:11 PM Reply   
Alex, i remember that thing!

i heard it was basically the crappiest thing ever produced in the wakeskating industry,

haha i heard pretty much the same thing which is why i was curious if that was actually the wakeskate he was talking about
Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       12-21-2007, 9:35 AM Reply   
Maybe, i dont know.

i remember that it had no flex in the tail and nose, which pretty much killed to point of the bi-level.

We (Obrien) were working one up but never released it to the public. There should be a new one out in a year.

While we are on the topic, I'm hearing rumors that the guys over at CWB's R&D are slaving over a hot batch of wakeskates.

They should be something of good quality and performance from what I've heard.

Caleb, have you ridden the zariel yet? i bet youre anxious for that 44"
Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       02-10-2008, 6:50 PM Reply   
Hahaha no, not yet.

I'm calling my rep tommorow to put in the order for my skate(s). I'm hoping i can get one for rails and one for wake, but ill be happy for anything. lol


and just to clear it up.... I'm on a 42" lol

Caleb, I got a chance to ride it. Its a good skate. But you will want to shape the rails quite a bit.

44 is rediculous haha.
Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       02-11-2008, 5:35 PM Reply   
haha nice.

You rode a seperate one than the one their producing as the final product.

They still arent releasing them yet. They are not even giving me one yet, lol. The final product will have much better rails.

yeah thats what ive heard. its a good deck with a snappy ollie. but it doesnt feel like a wood deck at all to me. the fiberglass wrap protects the wood but hides the feeling. but i think the rail change will make it better.

wood bottom deck is a must in all bilevels
Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       02-11-2008, 7:46 PM Reply   
I would agree with that, but I have never been a fan of wood decks and always skate composite skates. But I have never rode a bi-level either, so my opinion is invalid at this point.


Either way im stoked to get it. I can't wait

if you like comp decks then you will love the zariel. i havent met many people that have prefered comp over wood, interesting.
Old    Caleb Rountree (dlwsrider)      Join Date: Apr 2007       02-12-2008, 5:32 PM Reply   
Yeah, Im a definant exception to that. Plus i love rails, so comp just makes sense
