ok u guys have probably read all my other threads and i know its gettin annoying but i think ive finnaly come down to the final desicion.... Im 13 like 4 feet 11 inches and weigh 95 pounds and i need some advice on which board i should get...

Hyperlite 130 Premier
Hyperlite 133 Parks (Biolite)
Liquid Force 133 Subjekt
Liquid Force 131 Nemesis
Blindside 133 Blade

My skill level at this point is intermediate/beginner and i was looking for a more advanced board because i can now jump wake2wake and i want to start learning more tricks (im a really fast learner)

you really should look at the gator boards caddy 135. its two molded fins and the option of using a center fin. comparable to the other boards, but great for free riding

I recently moved from an older Nelson to the Blade and feel like the Blade is giving me better pop. YMMV.

yes you can...it's slow as f

check out the nelson and the blade....sick ass boards with awesome pop, good speed to the wake, edges great, and super soft landings.

Speed and pop has more to do with correct technique than the board shape. Don't listen to Joe Blow telling you that a board is slow or fast, or has better pop than this or that board cuz you may have better technique than them. Just demo and check boards out for yourself if you can.

ahem....

slow = work harder to get decent speed to the wake

of course technique has a lot to do with it. whoever said it doesn't is a royal dumbass.

It really depends on your style of riding. Personally I prefer a shorter board (I stand 5'6" and weigh 130lbs) for quicker rotations. Based on your list, I'd go for the Premier 130. I demo-ed the Absolute 134 last weekend and it's pretty sick as well, though it may be a bit too big for you at this stage.

But should i just forget about the liquid force nemesis because its a begginers board and i dont want a beginners board because i want something that cuts fast into the wake so i can jump and the nemisis doesnt look like it would help me at charging the wake

Old    essy            07-19-2004, 11:26 PM Reply   
it's all heresay, but I heard that the nemesis supposedly cuts pretty aggressive and fast with its continous rocker - just take a look at what Philip Soven can do on this board. I still think either the Premier or the Absolute would be a better choice.

O'Brien Player 133 ---- 3-stage
O'Brien Demented 131 ---- Progressive

Both are great boards...

When your ready to buy, I have the full Gator Line up on my site. http://www.boardbag.com. I also think the Caddy 135 would be a great pick. It's a great freeride that's quick and effortless with lots of pop off the top. I also heard some great things about the 05 Rick G board!
