Was wondering which is preferred for wake to wake moves or if it really doesn't matter.
I have been riding Subtle 3 stage boards and aggressive continuous boards for a long time. Cwb guy for a while Prodigy, Absolute, Transcend, The Gator Rick g and most recently the Prospect. Really like the best of both worlds feel. Have taken a spin on a Shane, Ibex, and a couple other aggressive three stage boards.
I really like the pop but being a rider with a small bag (BR, Tant, Crow, TS Back, Ts Front all the 1's and working a consistent bs and fs 3) I am not consistently enough "aggressive" on the board to get the full advantage of a pure 3 stage board I don't think. I like the snap the 3 stage gets me off the wake but those boards worked me if I wasn't on point and aggressive.
So was just curious if a 3 stage gives you a better wake to wake ride since you are more up? Main reason trying to decide Recoil or Response from Slingshot. Been on a Response for a bit but don't have access to a Recoil to demo. I know they have the Reflex with a hybrid, but that seems to be more of a cable board which I will do 0 of.
This is all just stuff floating around in my mind while i sit here doped up from a nasty shoulder dislocation........so it very well could be that there is no advantage just a different feel. That's why I decided to ask.
