I live in Argentina and here we dont get a lot of options of wakeboards and boots.
Ive been wakeboarding for less than a year with this SUPER crapy wakeboard and bindings, its almost like a toy wakeboard... but even with that, i can do w2w jumps, 180's, 360's and w2w 360's.
And as my bro is goin to USA i decided buying a couple of goodies.
Ive just finished ordering at a hyperlite premier DNA 136 board and a 2004 hyperlite parks binding. Now i cant wait the 15 days until my brother comes back!
anyone have this set up? do you think it will improve my ride?

I personally don't like the Premier, I found it to be a little sluggish on edge and especially on the pop. However I have more than one friend who swears by the board. It all comes down to riding style. I did find the pop to be really abrupt and real nice when I waited for it. The TFD suits my riding style better. I however ride an LF Substance.

If you're riding a "toy wakeboard" it should definetly help your riding, you just may find yourself adjusting your riding style to the board. Best of luck with the board and I hope it suits and works out awesome for you.

Good for you. It is awesome that you can do all those tricks on a toy board....the premier is sure to improve your riding!! I don't personally ride it, but it is defenitely a good board! Have fun with it!!

Another note to made it seem in your post that your bro is going to pick up your gear and bring it back for you. That is cool, but I believe that will ship internationally, so you can order gear from them whenever you want!

i know they sell internationally, but shipping stuff to argentina is complicated, customs will make me pay hundreds of dollars of taxes, if i bring it trough the airport I dont pay them.

I remember how excited I was to get my first "real" setup (an 02 Belmont 136 w/ Belmonts). It's a real thrill! Hope you like your new gear, Agustin!

I used to have a plastic wakeboard that I bought at wal-mart. I upgraded to a fiberglass board and I notice a big improvement. You should have a lot more fun a decent set-up.
