Im stuck.

Ive been riding between an 08 140 murray and a 139 obrien natural.

I absolutely love the way the natural rides and how forgiving it is and how soft it lands. The best part is the board sends me way out into the flats without even trying.

I also love the way the murray rides but my favorite attribute is how high it boosts me. The only problem is it doesnt send me nearly as far into the flats.

So basically im looking for a board that pops as hard as the murray but sends me into the flats like the natural and rides like the natural. I have a feeling this is a 2 way road and ill have to choose what i want.

check out the shane 140. it'll buck you straight up, but when you want to rail at the wake, it'll take you out in the flats. lands super soft, too.

try out the Obrien Player. orrrrr, you could wait till the Decade comes out for 2009 and see how that rides.

I would say wait to check out the 09 Decade, they should start popping up right after Expo! That board is so SICK!

To me, the Decade has more upward pop then the Natural, yet it is still very fast making it easy to get out into the flats. It also seemed to land even softer then the Natural.

Check it out when you get the chance, it is a sweet ride!

haha ive ridden the monarch too. Def a fast 3 stage board with tons of verticle pop but i think the board was a lil too much for me as i am not that good yet.

I just bought a 2008 140 Murray and love it. I don't think you would be disappointed with the purchase.
