Thanks to Shawn for getting his new site put together Wakegiant.com and for being the first one to get all the new Hyperlite products.

i noticed some of the sizes they are going slightly bigger... like the parks 140 and 144 instead of 138 and 143

I'd have to say judging by the look of these boards I am on the dissapointed side. I was anticipating great bindings from Hyperlite for 05. The Parks bindings look so cheap it's sad. The Murray bindings are ugly and the ERA is just plain SAD. What were they thinking?! The boards look ok, but nothing that I was expecting. I expect more from the leading innovators of Wakeboarding.

Jonathan, Its some sort of alien Machinery stuff on the parks board. Makes no sense to me. Anyone have any more info?

IMO the Byerly graffics are sick. (Pitty the board isn't for me) but I would like to try the new ERA just to see what it's like.
None of the bindings have any apeall to me. I know that you shouldn't only go on looks. But come on they're ugly. Maybe they look better in person and perform really well?

I might be the only one who like the murray boot... lol at least the look of it... that won't make me buy HL though... lol
they add a small molded fin on the TFD/3ds... that's interesting... they really look like a match of the old parks and TFD with little add ups... the new parks really looks like it will bite... watch out for the edges you newbies...

in general, graphics are nice (except for the premier), boots are plain, shapes are... well... nothing fantastic...

Jon i like the look of the murray boot,looks like maybe they went back toward the design of the 99 premier/murray boot with adding a boa at the top and a claw to it..i bet an improvement for sure from the 02/03 premiers...

i second the byerly bottom graphics are sick but the board isnt for me either.HL does need to improve a bit but looks arent everything..if the board rocks under my feet ill buy it even if its pink and yellow..
however im on an obrien Demented with zeus bindings for now.

The premier is flat out ugly. I might have liked it in 1990. I'm diggin the graphics on the DNA murray, but not really anything else. What's with all the brown and green? Also it seems a little weird to have a groundhog(?) holding a hockey stick on a wakeboard.WTF? Am i missin something?

As far as the parks board, i just figured it said hyperlite. Even though i couldn't make it out.

ERA's up
Old    vcamper            08-14-2004, 9:27 PM Reply   
I like the look of the parks boards but what happened to hyperlite's binding line? The bindings look like they'd fall apart once they hit the water all covered in that plastic looking crap. Might be time to switch to LF bindings

Anyone know when the prices on the new stuff will be up?

brett: probably closer to the release date of the products, in a month or two.

I still can't believe they got rid of the Old Premier shape. IMO that was the best shape of all time. Argue if you will...and I'm sure you will...but they could at least make it a non-pro board.

I gotta say, those Parks graphics are NICE. Can I please get a 136 DNA with the 144 Biolite top sheet? Oh wait...I don't like the board itself...oh, well.

I think they completely surpassed the public and went straight to the gimmick hall of fame.

Hey Salmon Tacos I feel ya man my favorite board shape was the 03 premier shape. The 05 era looks to be the same shape as the 03 but it just has some knotches on the top.

The new Byerly graphics obviously are a gimmick.

Sure glad I got an 04 premier and didn't wait for the '05. It's damn ugly IMO.

Well I think it looks way better, and next time you try to use big words, don't. because you are the EPITOME of bad spelling.

I think the Murrey bindings are the best looking binding I have ever seen. No one has done brown and it looks sick. But I don't like the laces are ratchets, so it doesn't matter what they look like. The Parks board graphics are aweful. What unartistic shmuck came up with that crap? It reminds me of bad tattoo that a white trash guy might think is the greatest thing in world, making him harder than everone. All it is missing is a few tribal designs. But the Premier and Era are sweet. Oh, and a couple of the Murray boards look pretty good, especially if they had his binding on them.

All everyone is doing is talking about how these boards look, but nobody is saying anything about how they work. I guess everyone on this board must just sit around and look at their boards. Granted there are boards that look better than others, but c'mon. People could argue about asthetics forever.

Just my opinion...Find a board that works for you and ride it.
Old    rypayne            08-16-2004, 4:16 PM Reply   
Well no one can ride them yet, so looks is all we can talk about. Im sure there will be plenty of discussion on how they ride when then can be riden. And I sit around looking at my board quiet often.
