A couple people on here have asked me how my new board rode so I thought I'd make a new thread and fill you all in. I've been riding a Slingshot Response for the past 2 years and I have the Oracle 140 flex. First off, what really sold me on the board was the center spine or double concave bottom. It is awesome! I've had 2 some what minor knee injuries this past year, and the spine helps soften the landings. I felt sometimes my slingshot would rebound when I would land in the flats and centered on my board, actually making the landings harder. So far this has not happened with the Humanoid. The double concave bottom makes the board transition very smoothly edge to edge, something which I felt was a huge improvement. However, the double concave does make the board a little bit slower on the water than the Response, which is a very fast board. The flex pattern seems close to the same, the humanoid is probably a little bit softer in the tip and tail for presses. The board is very smooth off the wake, very good for spinning. My 5s were coming around much easier. Pops great and releases quick. Overall I feel this board is a lot more user friendly than my slingshot was. I'd have no problem letting a beginner use it where with my slingshot I'd look around for any other board for them to use. I can't wait to go winch with this thing because that's where I think it will really shine.
