Anyone have any Vandall boards out there they are willing to part with? Really interested in a company, mutiny or humanoid. Let me know, thanks!

I have one the Humanoid Circus. I thought that was one of his designs? Its only been ridden once. I'm thinking its 140 or 141 range. I don't have it near me to check.

Speaking of Vandall, why has he disappeared off social media?

I have his very last signature board from Gator that never made it into stores because he jumped ship before the season.

I have two Vandall boards that are now hung on my wall as art. One has never been ridden and the other has been ridden a few times. I don't think I'll ever let them go! Name:  IMG_1633.jpg

Keep an eye on Ebay.... Occasionally one will come up for sale, but I haven't seen any in a while...

Does anyone know if Humanoid is still in business? I haven't seen or heard anything about them in a while...

They are dead. Closed up a year ago unfortunately. I recently got an O'Shea prototype from a thrift store in Florida, the owner confirmed Humanoid is gone.

Sad, I was rooting for the little guy who was doing it for the love of the sport... But alas, this is a big boy industry where the little guys just get squeezed out

Kyle, Joel and everyone had a lot of passion and made a great product. I still love my '11 Oracle. I think they had a good idea bringing everything stateside and offering custom builds, but unfortunately only a handful of people wakeboard anymore. It's just not a big enough market to be a small player in. (Kent Watersports & Ronix dominate what's left)

Which makes me wonder, is there a market for custom wakesurf boards? It seems like that's where the money might be.

Yeah... It saddens me that very few people are wakeboarding anymore... All they do is surf... It's OK for a few minutes, but not enough adrenalin in that for me... Unfortunately my knee isn't holding up and I want to wakeboard so bad.... I could probably surf, but I really just don't want to... That would seem like giving up... I have had 2 quad tendon surgeries on my left knee (in 8 weeks back in 2014) and then I had that knee scoped this spring and they cleaned up the meniscus. At 50 years old, my wife is encouraging retirement from wakeboarding, but I am rehabbing and hope to get it feeling right so that I can ride this summer.

I have a few custom builds from Humanoid. 3 actually: 2 boat and 1 cable. One is the Cameo shape with Vandall bottom and custom graphic, the other is the Oracle (new shape) with a unique graphic by Mat Miller, and finally a Huxtable shape for the cable. I really liked Humanoid and the energy they put into the wake industry. Sad to see. I really didn't like the Vandall board. Too narrow and too fast for my liking. Extremely locked in once on edge. Nonetheless, I'm sad to say now that I got rid of it. I feel like my best riding however has been on the 2014 Humanoid Oracle. I wish I still had that one too!

Hey JC, what's up? Which shape board did I buy from you? I think it was the Oracle outline with the bottom features from another board? Anyway, still loving this board!

Whatís up! It was the new, updated Oracle shape. I canít remember which type of bottom design it had. Maybe the outside channel or multi-concave? I havenít ridden in about 2 yr. so disappointing. But canít wait to get back on the waterÖstay safe out there!

I hope it wasn't an injury! So when did the Oracle shape get updated? The one I have is a "multi-concave" bottom. When their site was still up, I think they called it a "multi-channel?"

I think I'm not a fan of those "Blunt" fins, have you tried more traditional fins on your Humanoids?

100%
I get the feeling everyone here feels the same. At 53 I am riding more cautious and losing tricks but probably wouldn't be if I had more people to ride with here on my home lake, and had anybody else who had any stoke to push a little to learn something new.

Same - at 49 I am only one left that wakeboards. My daughter and my friends sons have stopped and they are only in their 20's.
All they want o do is surf. I am like an old skier that gets their run in then everyone else does their thing. Sorry for threadjack

I am with you guys... I am 50 and I have had 4 knee surgeries ACL on the right knee... And a torn Quad tendon that I re-tore 8 weeks post op and then I had that knee scoped this spring... I still want wakeboard... But I take it easy now... Most everyone here just surfs.... Boring though

I have tried all the fins Humanoid sold: point nines, point sevens, blunts, and bomber fins. point nines were definitely too locked in. If I had to choose, I'd pick point sevens or the bombers. The point sevens are on right now. Still enough to lock in but easy to break loose if need be. Man, I wish they were still in business. Good people, great brand, awesome t-shirts. As for boots, the Howls were my favorites. The Odyssey boots were too stiff for me (maybe I just laced them up too tight). Sad to see them cut short from their full potential.
