So i have been riding a slingshot response since 08. I have had an 08, 09, & 10. I love the speed of these boards but i feel like the pop has been lost. It could be due to the fact that i ride rails and that this is my 2nd season on this board. But the other day i rode a marek nova and loved the pop off the wake and it was also a very fast board.
So my queston is what boards out there ride fast and have alot of pop off the wake. I hate the feeling of being drug throuh the water. This feeling is hard to describe but i have felt it on a hyperlite imperial. I just feels like i am plowing though the water and i have to work so much harder. Thats why i liked the marek cause it felt like it rode ontop of the water instead of plowing through it.
In general do the traditionl boards get more pop off the wake than flex boards?
