I was trying to find the spec's on the Origin Bansai 134.
The website (www.OriginWakeboards.com) is not working or no longer...?.....does anyone know the spec's on this board?

Right on Dogg.
I've obviously never utilized this site to it's fullest.
That board looks pretty good to me.

Origin boards ride really nice.

I'm liking the rocker, weight and tail shape.
It looks like it only has one fin ea tip and maybe doesn't track as hard as other boards with molded fins or 3 fins ea tip.
Are there any grooves or channels at all on the base?
I wonder how well it holds up to sliders as well.

They hold a really tight edge. The edges are cupped/rolled down so they bite pretty good. The spine down the center to break up the landings is bigger than most other boards (probably comparible to the Parks board). It's ideal for sliders because the entire board is coated in a P-tex material. The board feels like it's plastic. Of course, I've only riddeen the 137 skull and the 140 Swamp. I'm asuming that the Bansai has a similar hull but I could be wrong.

Thanks for the insight J-Rod.
None of the pics of any 2002 models show any detail on the edges and base and the descriptions are lacking.
Sure wish the local shops carried these.

The origin bansai board seems to be a smaller version of the skull board. Both boards pop well, have a responsive feel, are light and track nice.
