Does anyone have any intel on the 09 Shane? I saw Shane a few months back, and he said he'll have an all new board for 09. Just curious what it'll be like.

I read somewhere that they are not going to continue with the cupped fins anymore for the shane. I don't know how reliable that is, but that is what I heard.

i talked to shane in the twin cities and he said they did away with the cupped fins for 2009... he also said he loved the cupped fins but liquid force wanted to drop them because they thought it would sell more without them; they thought those fins might scare the customer......

The Hyperlite A-Wing Scares Customers, The Byely Flow Through Design Scares Customers, Cupped Fins and Clown Shoes Not So Much. The Shane Always Has A Crazy Abrupt 3-Stage Rocker, Right?

There is a pic of Shane going off on the new board/binding setup in the new WBM on page 88. The Shane is on my list of boards to try at some point in time. I read in an interview that Shane wanted to get rid of the cupped fins and try some other ideas instead. He didn't really give a good reason why he was getting rid of them, but he did say that he really liked them.

Not the picture I am looking at, it is the board and bindings that have been showing up in the 09 LF threads. Not the turquoise board/bindings setup that were the 08 limited.

I'm glad he's doing away with the cupped fins. They break on the sliders like nothing. I asked LF to send me a bag of them...thankfully they did.

i'm amp'd they're puttin out a 142 instead of a 140 this year. i wonder if it's still going to be a wide board or if he's going back to a more traditional width.

i'll def be on the look out for this one.
