Just looking to switch up boards... and there's lots of good deals on closeout 09 stuff. Been looking at Ronix One or Viva.

I currently ride a 06 absolute plat.. I like the lite weight, but trying to get something with some more pop. Its starting to fall apart a little too, delaminating on the edges a bit. I can't seem to get crazy good height/hangtime, but I can push out into the flats pretty easy. Probably mostly me and not the board, but thats another story.

I'm an intermediate rider at best. Not sure if I should get something thats a more agressive 3stage (One) or a more consistant ride (viva).

Thanks in advance

You can Handle either one. I rode the ONE from it's conception, till' I rode the Viva this year. Personally, I preferred the Viva. It's speed is incredible for the amount of pop it gives, and it has very forgiving landings. Try both of them out, and see what's best. You can't go wrong with either.

I think either one will accomplish what you want. The Viva has more pop than I was expecting. The One will have that little bit more.

Either way, I think you will be stoked.

Rode the old park series for the last 4 years, which in my opinion is polar opposite of the CWB board...Bought a Ronix One 3 weeks ago and was very impressed. It is a good cross between an 06' Byerly (more similar to CWB's ride) and the hyperlite Parks board. It had comparable pop to both boards, decent edge speed (but not to fast), and easy to control butter slides. My buddy had his best and most consistent set of the year hands down on the Ronix (as far landings and good pop goes).

I gotta say that I love my Viva. It's got a VERY aggressive continuous rocker, bordering on a 3stage. They rounded off the edges from the Covin shape, making it more playful and forgiving than the last shape. Also, I would recommend the .8 fins instead of the 1.0's. Very fast cut, big, solid, consistent boot, and solid landings. would highly recommend it.

I am looking at the same two boards and currently ride an 05 parks board. I have demoed the mana, last years covin and a few hyperlite boards and the covin was my favorite. Before trying the covin I was going to get the one but now im starting to lean towards the viva. I would love to demo both but dont think I will get the chance to by the end of the year.

Hmm... all great advice. My buddy wants a new board also so I think I'll pick of of em and he can get the other... best of both worlds!

Czimmerman... how would you describe the ibex in comparason to these other boards? I haven't heard much or even seen many people rockin that board.
