ok so its my birthday and i would like to buy myself a new board for this currently riding on a 2004 133 dna parks board with the 2004 parks about 5 foot 10 and 155 pounds. I was looking at the hyperlite boards/bindings and the ronix boards/bindings. Another things is i would like to get an 08 board and bindings because i just cant afford the new 09 stuff. what would you guys suggest? im not really worried about the price beacause i can get basically any of the 08 stuff cheap.

can you help us out a little to help you out, by giving a li'l more info?

What do you want from your ride?
what rocker style do you prefer?
you like a fast edging board?
abrupt/bucking style of pop?
are soft landings super important to you?
lots of traking or a looser feel?

do you like softer/ more flexible boots or stiffer ones?
do you want something that is especially quick and easy to put on?
closed toe or open toe?

The owner says it is a 2008.....Original owner says he paid $750.00, but is selling for 250.00. A deal that good though, it may already be gone.

i would like to keep it similar to my old ride so probably 3 stage rocker, good pop and soft landings isnt that important and i like a looser feel.

in the bindings i would like good support, not worried about how fast hey take to put on and i would like to get closed toe boots.

Pick up an '08 Ibex, pretty much the same as the '09 and you can get them on the cheap!

Take a look at the Ibex 139, Parks' current design. Slap on some smaller fins (or grind down the current ones) I think it would be just what you're looking for. 2008 cells are killer as well. That's the setup I rocked last year and loved it.

Dude with the embossed logo the painting opportunities on that board are endless. So I wouldn't worry too much about it.

This is what I did to a couple of mine for example.

Kristian, those look sick! I wasn't really into the Ibex graphics either, but I still think it is the board I am going to be riding this year.

im considering the ibex now

on another note i ride in a pretty dirty river and if i did decide to get a white board/bindings would it get stained real bad?

Thanks Guys! Yeah I decided to paint all my Ibex's after I received my first one to hear my Mum say "What are you the silver surfer?"
A rockin shape though!!! Love it!!!

A white board isn't too bad in dirty water but white bindings do get skuzzy and beige in filthy water.

Did you paint those? I would buy the second one, definitely!
Old     (kristian)      Join Date: Nov 2002       03-03-2009, 7:38 PM Reply   
Yeah I painted them. Just spray paint and masking tape. I have a couple more as well.

I might try to find an 08 IBEX, and paint it. I always thought it would be cool to just paint the embossed logo. Or paint everything but the embossed logo.

Lots of good used boards, on this site alone.

I ride white bindings on a dirty lake and they haven't been stained. I wouldn't really be worried about that

cells are stiffer
Old     (hawkeye7708)      Join Date: Feb 2007       03-04-2009, 3:16 PM Reply   
One's are more middle of the road as far as the side to side flex goes, the Cell's are made to be far more stiff. I'm sure that a few people can offer a better description than that, but from all I've been told, Cell= Stiff, One= Medium stiffness

Kristian, how does the paint stick to that? Did it chip at peel at all? Send me a PM, I am very interested in painting my board like that haha.

ok ive decided to get the one bindings but i heard they dont tighten up that true?
Old     (gunnertom4593)      Join Date: Sep 2008       03-07-2009, 8:10 AM Reply   
the ones tighten up ok but not amazing, you really have to pull it hard and it's not always easy. I would say pay a little more and get the 09 franks or kai's. The whole new ronix line of boots is amazing.
Actually my 08 ones broke on me after about 7 or 8 rides and I had to get them replaced, and when I did I paid a little extra and got some 09 cells. Best boots I have ever ridden. But when I rode the franks I found them better than the ones too.
Any more questions just let me know. I also ride an 08 DHV1 which is the same shape as the one if you have questions about that

Thanks David! The first on up here is my fav I've done by far. I based it off of one of Zakk Wyldes Gibsons.
