Anyone have any expo pictures of the 09 SS product? I'm itching to see!

Damn their boards and bindings look sick!

Slingshot wins in the graphic department from what I've seen so far for the 09 stuff. so sick.

nice stuff... looks like the recoil is gone.. or that the name changed just a bit along with the shape into the "reflex." Alliance does call it "the NEW reflex." looks like the side cut changed for the whole line of boards, it no longer dishes out over the fins towards the center of the tip and tail but more to the corners.

i want to think the "drama" board is just a ladies version of the "reflex" but the "reflex" looks more rounded on the tip and tail.

Looks to me that the laces are thinner (wonder why they did not call it a "D3" and left it D2, no biggie) and it looks like the boots are still using the snaps as the method to prevent lace dangle. though they look like the same snaps, i hope they made them a bit more tight, tighter snap that is. (you can see the back of a D2 boot in all the boot photos)

LOOKS LIKE THEY STILL HAVE REMOVABLE LINERS! (heard on another thread that this feature may go as well as the removable ankle supports) i really do hope so... or give me a good reason why not

I also want to see the fins. heard they were changing the fins and correcting the problem of them stripping over time. there are some fins to the side in each boot pic. looks like they are still fiberglass? judging from translucent material. maybe there are metal inserts for the screws? or the material is just harder?

don't mind me too much. surf expo pics makes me drool, physically and mentally. like looking at a collection of photos from a cook book. waiting to get the low down on the recepies

Glad to see they kept it simple with the graphics so I can make my own. :-)

The Recoil isn't gone, I just didn't shoot it. The Reflex is an entirely new board, which is what the story says. Unfortunately I don't have time to shoot every product in every booth and post it on the Alliance site.
