The lotus board is really fun! It's really easy to add an extra 180 to something (whether it's on the surface or going wake to wake). I think almost all cwb boards have a core down the middle of the board on the bottom that makes it easy to land whatever and wherever you are trying to land on the water. It splits the water so your board can land and continue carving out with ease.
The hinge tech is really comfortable and convenient. My family never has any soap out on the boat any more because we all just use those hinge bindings.
