lots of good board out there right now just gotta know what you really want in a board. Go check out a couple shops and talk to the guys and tell them exactly what your looking for and im sure they can help. Try to go to pro shops not huge retail chains where the people either dont ride or dont care.

check out the slingshot response 145... super light, has flex, and is more fun to ride than anything I've ever been on

I agree with Nick. You should definitely check out the Response. Slingshot is making great boards that are a blast to ride.

Wait for Rusty's board the Marek from Hyperlite. Its coming in bigger sizes compared to other boards. Rusty's a big dude compared to riders like Murray. Big dude.......big board :-)

I would check out the CWB Faction 144cm great board, give it a demo if you get a chance.
I would also check out the 08 Murray 145cm.

I ride the CWB Faction 144, Man do I like that board. Easy to control the edge & pop, super soft landings.

If a 144 is what you are looking for I would suggest a 144 O'brien Natural or a 145 Local! If you need more info on these board PM me.

Another vote for slingshot responce. Gota experience the new flavor of flex! Ultimate in soft landings and awsome rebounding pop. (give it atleast 2-3 sets to get used to)

(andy mentioned the Local. its a new flex board too, not much info on it as it is just barely hitting the market, but andy for sure can enlighten you if interested)

Andy, when in the hell can I buy one.

I check the house and the o'brien website everyday.
I want a local real bad!

Hyperlite 143 Pulse, 145 State, 147 Apex. Ronix One 146, Mana 142. Rusty's 146 Marek is going to be Pricey. 700 MSRP, But I ordered mine.
