I have been on so many boards over the last 2 or 3 years (have 7 now) and have liked charactoristics of many but others make it the board unridable for obe reason or another. Recently the Legend 145 is great on landings but does not release off the wake the way I like.
The one I rode the longest with the most sucess is the old Watson 06 07 shape.
I am now on a Tribute 142 and like it except that it does not feel big enough for me (220lbs, 6'2") and it lands kinda hard. I am open to suggetions for people who have been on bigger boards.
