Anyone who has seen me ride knows I am no riding wizard, but:
I have a 2002 Belmont, a 2004 Parks, and a 2004 Absolute (well, I also have a couple others, but they don't count).
They all ride very differently, and in my opinion, really depends on what you want, and also, what you are riding behind (boat/wake-type). Each has it's own style (which I seriously lack!). You really need to try different boards, and see what feels best for you. Depending on my mood, somedays I really feel like one over the other. More pop, more speed, etc.
I am always game to let others try any boards I have just so they can get a taste of different rides.
Good luck. I am going back to sleep now! Sorry for the rant! Hope it makes some sense!
