Finally got to ride yesterday for the first time in over a year. We were riding behind my 2003 Super Air Nautique 210, only ran about 5-600 lbs of ballast but had 10 people in the boat and half a tank of fuel, the wake was just right for not riding for so long.

Setup: Slingshot Lyman 144 w/ Slingshot D3 boots, right foot forward feet slightly ducked.

The first thing I noticed about this board is that it is FAST. I was riding a 2009 Recoil 142 before this, and I felt my Lyman was much quicker. When committing to an edge the board took off as soon as I dug in. It required little effort from me.

Going right along with that speed was incredible edge hold. It was like I was riding on a track, it held it's line perfect every time, I never got squarely off the wake. And when I landed the shape of the bottom of the board helped me to stay on track with that same great edge hold. A lot of my jumps were taken to the flats and this board never washed out, there were a few times I was coming down pretty sketchy and the board got me out of it.

As far as pop goes, this board has plenty of it to go around. I was barely even trying to pop the board and I found myself in the flats quite a bit. I can tell that once I am back in my groove I will be jumping high and farther on this board than my Recoil or my One.

My favorite part was landing. Believe it or not this board has a lot of flex. Not as much as an 09 Recoil, but never the less a lot of flex. Landings were soft and smooth and the shape of the bottom kept me on track. Not one landing did I get sketchy and fall.

After the first ride I love the board, but I have a lot more riding to do to give a star rating or 9/10 but so far everything looks great. This make be the perfect mix of big wake and flex boards.

It really is an awesome ride. It feels good in rough water too with the urethane sidewalls.
