I am thinking about trying a new board this year.I have been riding a 140 premier dna and I love it.The only problem is I would like more speed.What boards have you switched to?

Funny...I went from a Premier to an Absolute as well. Much better ride. Softer landings, more speed, and an assload of pop.

great, very very fast, faster than an absolute. I thought I wouldn't have another board until I rode a TFD. Its a continuous rocker so the landings are softer than a Parks with a 3 stage.. And rumor has it that an 04 Premier is slower I heard from someone. Demo the Absolute platinum and the TFD DNA if you can. Or try the LF Substance I hear it is great as well.

which absoluite is the best because they have changed the rocker and bottom design every year the last 3years so is the 04 or 03 better??

also dont you lose some POP going froma Premier to a TFD do to rocker patetr being continous VS 3 stage??

I heard you can take your Premier center fins off and it will speed up a bit try that first...

I ride my premier finless.It does speed up a bit although not alot. The TFD sounds interesting it has a continous rocker and it has a center beam that looks like it will land soft. Also its fast. I will test one when the weather breaks.
