I've been checking these boards out now that prices have dropped and I'm wondering that if both are the same price, is there any reason to get the classic over the new shape? Board will be ridden only behind the boat. I am an intermediate rider. I would be coming off a 08' LF Substance. I found both boards for around $280. I don't have the ability to demo them, which is why I am asking here.
I find it interesting that although the new shape exists, riders like Bob Soven, Harley and others that don't have pro models rode the classic and not the new shape.
Any shared experiences are appreciated.
