I'll probably buy a new board at the end of this season. I havent ridden CWB but like what i hear and read. All you CWB riders post up with your recomendations.

The Platinum Transcend is is my favorite. It's the fastest big rocker board I have ridden.

But, I've ridden all of the CWBs. They're all great. Do some test riding and figure out the best one for you.

I ride the new Transcend; overall a great board. I wouldn't mind trying out the new Marius though, It looks pretty sick. Either way you can't go wrong with a CWB.

I bought an Absolute and some faction bindings two weeks ago.Haven't ridden anything but a crappy O'brien board so I don't have much to compare it to, but it seems to have a ton of pop and speed.

I got my son an absolute platinum 134 w/Zeus bindings. 2 trips on the water and I'm more impressed with the new ride than he is. Two of his riding buddies rode it and luved it as well. Good Product!!

rode the Absolute Plat 141 with the .5 fins, loose when you want but grips like no other when cutting into the wake, has good release and spins super easy, rocking Fuse bindings, feel like snowboard boots (excellent)

I went back to my 03 Absolute 140 (aka: Pure) this season after spending all last year on a 3DS. The CWB is so much fun to ride.

I bought a used 2005 Absolute 141 for this season and so far I'm loving it! I'm planning on taking the center fin out next time I'm out to give that try--from what I've read on the board a lot people ride it without the fins.

No center fin is the ony way to ride an absolute. I think you'll like it much better.

Thats the fist time I have ever heard someone say CWB's Customer service is sub par, I have had nothing but the best of customer service as well as tons of riders on wakeworld.

That's what I have heard on wakeworld as well but I am just speaking from my experience in the last few weeks.

Really it comes down to the rocker you like.

Transcend - if you like bucking kick- great for going big and serious cushion landings.

Marius - if you like continues rocker kick (more consistent). Serious pop into flats and landings are smooth. 08 will probably be a lot faster than 06-07.

I have the kink with vapor bindings and it is pretty nice, THEN i tried out the transcend and man does that board ride nice on the top of the water and loose untill you edge then it grips hard. You will be in love with the hing and the ride with the transcend is hard to beat

I'm really dying to try the Transcend. I'm picking up a board(s) tomorrow to demo on Saturday. I'm 6'0", 175, and an intermediate rider. What size should would you recomend going with? (I'm coming from a 142 Byerly)

I wish they made the Transcend in a slightly smaller a 135 or 136....I'm 5'7 150ish.

I currently have an 04 Absolute, but looking to get a new platty next it!

I just picked up a brand new '07 Absolute 134/Faction combo yesterday. Got an absolutely smoking deal on it. Can't wait to get it on the water now that it's mine. I've demoed it several times and loved it.
