Anyone ridden this board? Interesting shape, no? Looks like it has a subtle cut concave on each end, whats that for?

All I hear and read is "new shape", "designed by industry heavyweights", etc. True enough. But, very unhelpful.

check the three different murray board tracking threads. i think there are a few reviews in the review section too

basically though:
the board is designed with the help of greg nelson (spelling?) and the rocker is a "hybrid" that has the features of both 3 stage and continuous. h

hope this helps

It rides great, It does have the concave on each end . It's like a cross between the old Premier & has a rocker like my Byerly 137. When I had the board in my hands I compared all 3 .

heres the deal...

the board has a continuous rocker line on the edges, giving it a ton of speed while cutting and on edge. in the middle of the board it has a 3 stage rocker because they cut a pocket out in the tip and tail area. this gives it an explosive pop off the wake.

the tip and tail have cupped edges outside of the molded in fins that also help to set your edge harder and hold while its on edge, yet when riding flat is a bit looser.

i really liked the board when i rode it. i rode the 145 and it felt great. edged really hard and tracked super good on landings yet still popped huge

i'm willing to bet that an older board rides like it.

double up delta possibly joe?
Old     (mucktoerider)      Join Date: Jan 2007       04-16-2008, 4:45 AM Reply toad!!! Ride it first before making that call. I have been on the majority of Double up boards from the past. Still can find them in my friends boats. This does not ride like those. Murray is much lighter. edges much faster...real clean running up the wake...pops awesome and lands smooth and soft. The phrase "I am willing to bet" means you have not rode the board yet. I know your mindset....Greg Nelson designed it...must ride like his old boards. No...theres more to it than that. Materials have changed and the design is definitely different on the bottom. Sure it has the canted footbed....that just allows a more unique bottom design as well. The new Marek looks like it is getting canted too. And probably for the same play around and design new bottom shapes. Murray is definitely unique and has never been done before.

chill man. i was playin.
Old     (mucktoerider)      Join Date: Jan 2007       04-16-2008, 10:53 AM Reply was I Just gave another chance to inform about the ride. Lots of people on here have the impression that it is old double up design. Yhea its got some ques from the old double up boards. But it rides Totally Nice! Super light. I put it up onthe scales and compared it to my Ronix Frontier 137 and my wifes New 08 Syn's about a pound lighter boots and all.

Here's my two cents.
I drew plans for the board, gave it to Hyperlite, plans sat around, I waited. Greg called me, sent me plans, nearly identical from tip to tail, canted foot bed was all him, but I really like it. The cup tail was mutual. My theory for the cupped tail is keeping the water under the board to create power as you leave the water either off the wake or a straight ollie.
think of it this way. this is gonna sound weird. if you cut a piece of pvc in half, length wise, so you now have a long pipe that is no longer round, but rather, in a "c" shape. hang over the side of the boat while up to speed, take said piece of pvc and kind of push it into the water so that it is cupped side down. now flip it over and push it down with the rounded side down. which would have more push back, and directional control? the rounded side would push water away and not have directional control.
The cups keep the water and the power of it under you rather than pushing it away.
some boards these days have tails that are v'd in the opposite direction. i am not saying they don't work, it just seems that the cupped tip and tail have more power.
I have officially confused you all.

plus (the cupped tail) when edging it should cause more water to push on the molded fin with more force equaling more hold, so only needing a smaller fin to have a same hold of a bigger fin on a board with a V towards the tip/tail?

This is just a theory. I've never ridden the board. But I do like the design, it makes alot of sense in my eyes.

Well put Shaun! I think that says it all. It definitely has more power under the board. I have a hard time putting into words what the new shape is like. But your description says it the best. did you split PVC length ways? Was Travis bored driving the boat thru this little experiment? Are you still playing with toy boats and little widgets in your sinks (like my 4 and 2 year olds)? Just kidding...Thanks for the descriptive explanation. I'll remember to use time I am asked.

All I know is ever since I rode my first Murray board I was offically in Love. I had to buy the board, and since that day my riding ability has improved so much. The board makes things seem to effortless in a way. I have rode many boards, but none top the Murray.
