I've tried all of the Hyperlite boards, but they don't seem to flow as well as the old surfboard we used in the past. Just wondering what non-Hyperlite board is the best and why? Any opinions would be great. Thanks

I personally prefer the Shred Stixx. I find them easier to ride than the other boards (I've tried many). Most of my friends share the same opinion. However, I am a larger rider and had the Shred Stixx (Blow Fish) built to my size.

i feel that the liquid force slimskate 50 is pretty nice board, and cheap too, it rides pretty well, but im only a beginner.

I prefer the Shred Stixx. I have tried a few and this one (Blow Fish) works really well. I am 190# and just couldn't keep up with the wake on the other ones. It is similiar to my surfboard but the Shred Stixx are designed a little different for the wake and you can tell.

The LF Skim Skate is an underrated board. I have the 54 inch. It kills it and heres why:

It is very easy to spin and break loose. No huge fins and its bi-directional. 360s and 180s are easy.
It reacts very well to speeding up(leaning forward) and slowing down (leaning back).
I have never taken a nose dive. I find the Land Lock does this alot.
Very cheap price compared to other surfers.

Disadvantages:
Dosent fit in traditional style board racks.
Takes a big wave to stay in the sweet spot, buts not a big issue in my boat since we have plenty of ballast and people.

Its more of a trick, skim style board than a bigger crusier like a land lock or traditional surf board shape.
