I just really got into wakeboarding this year and decided I wanted to get my own board. Not wanting to spend too much on a really "advanced" board I ordered the CWB Pure/Torq combo... Has anyone here ridden this board or have any thoughts about it?

Thanks!

Great setup. The Pure is an old Absolute (pro model) shape and the Torq's are easy to get into and hold your foot well. I used to ride Torq's before I got my Zeus...

Great, thats what I wanted to hear. I have actually rode the Torq bindings on a buddy's board and liked them. I've never ridden a CWB board before but I have heard good things about them and the price was right for a first board. Now if Wakeside would just get it to me!!

Great board you will love it, like Rod said its an older Absolute shape, so it is really a solid board for the money, hard to beat IMO.

The bindings are backordered for a week or so... I started looking for a possible different setup because I want the board for this weekend but I'll wait it out now.

Russell, what about the combo Pure with the Vapor hinge bindings, a step up from the Torqs and its only about 30 bucks more for this package and maybe they have them in stock.

Man I tried that... They said that they can only offer the package at that price as it is advertised. No substitutions:-(

Yeah, you got yourself a great setup. Go check out CWB's site and take a look at the video page. I believe Scotty Broom and Jeff House ride the Pure in their sections and they each go huge!!! I used to ride that shape & it is a good one.

Great to hear guys! I'm trying to figure out exactly whats going on with it. Up until this morning wakeside had the bindings listed out of stock. I looked this morning and the status has changed to "Ships same day". I called wakeside to verify if they did get the bindings in and they said they still had not...

Russ, which size Board? It looks like Buywake.com has the 134 combo in stock for $349. Good Luck.

Yea I saw that... It wasn't the board that was backordered, it was the bindings. They said they should be in this week, no later than next. I'm gonna wait it out for a few days before I start looking elsewere I guess...

Thanks!

I looked on boaters outlet but didn't see it. The few places I have found that do have it in stock charge like $85-$100 for shipping. Wakeside's website says its in stock now. I'm just waiting for some type of confirmation.

It looks like Overton's has it and I may be able to get it here before the weekend. I think I'm going to cancel my order with Wakeside...

I just got that exact setup this year in the 134. Its a rad combo, and has given me the room to take my riding to the next level.

Looks good! I got to ride mine today for the first time. Threw my first W2W 180. I know it isn't much but I just really got into it this summer (few months ago).
