Got a question...

Whats a good board thats more forgiving for landing in the flats with good pop. My 04 Premier is killing my shoulder and elbow from "sticking" when I land. Any opinions on the 08 Syn, 08 Melissa, Coy or any of the guys boards.

I ride a LF PS3 and I think it has really soft landings. after I switched to it I stopped getting knee pain every time I landed a jump.
It also has awesome pop - more straight up pop, which suits me, but if you want to be landing in the flats all the time you might want something faster.
Give it a try if you can!
(it's also coming out as a girls board in 09).

The 08 syn is the same as the Tribute, IMO it is the best board hyp has ever made.VERY forgiving.
I have had 2 this year and every time someone demo's it they have talked me out of it.

I ride an 138 Obrien Skyla and it's pretty forgiving on landing out in the flats. I have been told that a longer board will always be more forgiving also. Hope that helps!
