I need a new board. I want a board that is good on sliders because i ride the cable alot and i ride wit no fins. I've been thinking about the hyperlite roam but i was wondering if its a good board to ride and jump wit.

Don't expect hyperlite or any other board company to warranty any board if you use it on a slider. Do you live near a boardshop that will let you demo? I would recommend demoing a few boards. Every board company has problems with boards and from what I have been told, is that the roam has had problems with delamination and cracking at the inserts. Hyperlite makes good stuff so I do not want people taking this has I am bashing on them but try riding boards from other companies you might be surprised in what you find. My only question is if you ride at a cable park alot why don't you buy some crap board to destory and save your good board for the lake? Best of luck with your decision.

Yeah you can jump on the roam. It will teach you proper edgeing real quick

That boat is a 2004 LSV 23. It has about 10 people in it with about 2500 pounds of ballast and 8.1 litre engine. The weight is divided 60/40

Nope, Honors go to Chris Wynn. WaterSki America helped transform this blue on blue LSV. All the hardware, rubber and chrome had to be taken off. Then a 3m wrap was applied. Kind-of like wallpaper

The man goes BIIIIIIG
