has this board been completely discontinued or has the shape come back under a new name?

It is called the Kink. The Pure also has pretty much the same base as the Flame also. However, it is not last years Absolute. The Kink / Flame shape is an 04 Absolute.

Jarrod, I thought that the '07 Pure had some subtle changes from the '06 Pure ('04 Absolute)?

Is the 03/04 shape the same (absolute?)

I rode the pure monday night and MAN I liked it way better than my 07 platty absolute.

There is a very small difference between the 03-04 shape, the one clear change is the tip/tail profile changes a little. Also you can see the tiny outer fin shrinks even more in 04. The biggest changes in the Absolute came in 02-03 and then in 04-05, the boards rode dramatically different after each of these years.

Try the Kink, it is the same shape but has better glass and should give you a little extra pop.
