it's a solid board. it's not the lightest nor the fastest (comparing to the Natural), but it's fast enough. it has good snap/pop off the wake.
ride it without the center fins and it's pretty loose while flat. note that it is not a continuous rocker.

that being said i really like it. i would also recommend that you check out the Natural.

the 07 and 08 legends are continuous... according to Troy.. the team manager.. and the gator website... the natural is a 3 stage.. not really my style.. i havent ever found a 3 stage that was predictable enough for me to enjoy..

a good friend of mine rode it, he liked it a lottt. It was fast, poppy, and consistant. If you want to get a continous rocker then this is a great board, demo if u can!

Ryan, the recoil and some of the LF's are supposed to be pretty consistant

okay, now i feel like a dumb a$$...i dunno even know what type of rocker one of my boards has. when i bought it from the dealer, they said it was a 3 stage. the board review on wakeworld also says it's a 3 stage.
"Rocker: 6.85 cm/2.70 in.
Rocker type: Three-stage"
the-house.com also says it's a 3 stage.

then i read the description on gator boards website and it says it's a continuous. WTF???

regardless of the rocker, i still like it.
though i still do have to suggest the Natural.

Its a solid board.. i love mine. Its really predictable and pops hard. Landings arent bad at all either. It tracks good too, i ride mine with little 1 inchers on it and love it. I would say it rides like a marius (06,07 shape) but WAY faster and more pop.

FYI the 142`s are really 145`s

nope didn't happen to me. i owned that one for a month last season as well. i really liked it, until it broke. but i also broke the Natural 3 times, & the Legend once as well.

eh, bad luck i guess. lol, i also forgot to throw the 3DS on the broken list. every board i broke was from a trick into the flats. 2 were just big floated out grabs, 4 were raleys/hoochies. i'm hoping to have a better summer this year.

as far as durability i felt like the Legend was the most solid. i really think you should check out the Natural. i tracks really well and is fast like most continuous boards but it's snaps really well of the wake with it's 3 stage setup. plus i think it's really predictable.
