I am now riding an 04 Joyride 136 Voodoo 2.5 3-stage. I have been riding this board 1 season and am new to wakeboarding. I can switch stance to normal or goofy but have yet been able to surface 360.
In the reviews of this board they rate it poorly at spinning. Are they speaking of surface spins or Air-time?
This board has very sharp rails that would make me think it could catch an edge easier than softer rails.
What would be a better board for surface tricks?
Thanks! Scott

I'm pretty sure the spinning rating has to do with releasing off the wake for spins in the air, but they kind of go hand in hand (surface and air).

The boards that rate high for spinning usually have a flatter rocker - look at some LF sitcks.

They are referring to spinning in the air.

Just because you saw as rating like that doesn't mean the board won't spin well. It just means the rider that reviewed it didn't like the way he spun on it.

If you want to practice surface tricks, try removing the fins. Or have your driver slow you down.

I am saying that the LF substance has low swing weight and releases well for spins... someone may say nope but I say yep

now... just gotta prove that spin theory with the 5...

In my opnion, the bigger the rocker, the flatter the board spins and the better it releases.

Yea, CWB boards are designed to have little weight in the nose and tail so they spin faster. Spinning is all technique no matter what board. But I like have less swing weight for doing 5's+.
