So I was just curious on everyones thoughts about this board.. Everything I read says soft landings which I understand, since it has mad width and the vtec, but what confuses me is that is says "huge pop". However, It has a continuous rocker. It just doesnt seem like it would have near the pop of a three stage, but thats why am asking... according to the wakeside chart it looks to be more of a into the flats board, but the discription talks about trevor effortlessly being able to boost a back 5 eight feet high because of the pop. Right now I am on a 07 lute and am very happy with, just curious your thoughts. Thanks guys

I haven't ridden a Marius, but from what I understand the majority of the pop comes from the great width of the board.

For a continuous board the Marius has a noticeable kick off the wake. It is so wide that is just launches. It will ride a lot different than the 'lute. It has more kick than any other continuous board out there. The V-tech allows it to still be manueverable because if it carried all that width and had a flat bottom it would not turn or keep the tail engaged in the water.

what about fins, I ride my absolute finless. I see on the board that the molded fins are pretty small, and so far apart (because of the width). I was just curious if it would be too loose.

I ride the marius finless. Its superloose. (PERFECT) I just rode the roam and I sucked on that. so the marius def. has more grip

yeah because the marius is so wide, it allows it to not only have massive pop, but softer landings.

a great combination.

Just wondering, but out of all the CWB boards, which one do you guys think has the highest pop?
Old    Roddyrod (wakeslife)      Join Date: Jul 2005       06-13-2007, 8:39 PM Reply   
probably whatever rider has the best technique

I've never broke one in the two years I've been riding platinums.

Heavy - Have you ridden a 3DS? I would be willing to say it boots just as much if not more than a Marius...which you mentioned had the most pop of any continuous rocker board. I demoed both and bought the 3DS. No worries, just curious if you had been on one.

I agree with Roddyrod, pop has more to do with the rider than anything else.

CWB Kicks A$$ but the marius feels like a huge a$$ block under my feet. Has anyone ridden one on a windy day and done a raily. The board feels like a freakin parachute catching wind. Not a fan it has great pop and landings but lacks manueverability. IMO for spinning inverts it just takes a little more effort than a board with a LITTLE less surface area

I have indeed and felt it had nowhere near the pop of the Marius. Pop certainly has to do with the rider and I prefer an aggressive 3 stage, the Marius & continuous don't work for my style.

The wind was really blowing hard this day. So now I understand. The wind got under the board and because of the short shorts lack of drag Tony went higher then the riders on the other boards
