I am really just starting out in this sport and I read a lot of post about boards and binding and am looking for answers? A buddy of mine from a local shop told me to go with the substance and Ultra Bindings. go finless because it will make me a better rider and he said I can progress into the board for years to come. But am I making a mistake. I read about fast and slow, hard and soft landing-what is right? And what makes boards fast or slow and how do the different rocker styles do for me? What are my options?

Go demo some boards if you can. you should learn for yourself what is best for you. But yes, the substance is a very nice board.

I guess my real question is what should I be looking for. I mean I just love to be on the water more than anything. I rode a O-brien Rail,CWB Tattoo, and then got on the Substance. I obviously feel the difference but am not sure what is going to be best for me. I mean once I start moving into doing tricks other than wake to wake jumps, then will I be a better judge of things.

A board that has a 3-stage has more pop than a board with a continuous. continuous has smoother landings for the most part and smoother turns. the bigger the board the more stable it is. 3-stage landings are harder on your knees but you get tons more air.

Thanks Devin. So then what makes a board fast or slow. Everything I read says the Substance has huge pop(aggressive 3-stage) but is slow to the wake.

its seems fast enough to me, its the design of the tail that makes it faster or slower. its all in the shape of the board. the slowness of the board will not affect your ride, a good board to look into for 2006 is the PS3 by LF, it has a simular shape as a substance with a 3-stage. its also faster with its shape. the landings are much softer than the substance also.
