I've been riding a LF Fish for a while and may need a new board this season. I havenít rode any new shapes for a long time and donít know where to start when demo time comes. Generally, I like the speed and consistency of a continuous rocker. I also like a loose boards and usually ride my Fish without fins. I notice much of LF is three stage now. Any suggestions for the LF line.

I'm going to try some flex boards too (slingshot / company), but since I havenít rode one yet, Iím not ready to even think about buying one until I see if I like it.

if you like a fast loose board, you might want to check out the lyman if you want to stick with liquid force, it rides very similar to the fish. even though the lyman is a 3 stage, it doesnt feel like one at all.

and if your looking at flex, ive ridden the company severance and the company recruit, both are supper sick! the severance has tons of pop, is loose as hell while flat, but is locked in while on edge, thats what im riding now. and its the fastest 3 stage deck ive ever been on. i was suprised how fast it actually was. its an all around fun board, i could take a full set just buttering around on that board and doing presses and have just as much fun as i would jumping.
the recruit is really fun to ride as well. its supper easy to ollie. and i think its the most consistant board ive ever ridden. very fast as well. it has a bunch of pop to. when i hit the wake the first time, i couldnt believe how much it booted me upward, fealt very much like a 3 stages with all the perks of being a continuous rocker board.

and as im sure you have read, the flex boards land supper soft if you land a little tail heavy. and ive landed tail heavy on every board ive ever ridden, so it works out great for me. its one of the reasons i switched to flex.
to be honest ive never really popped anything huge, and all the traditional boards ive ridden that supposedly land supper soft, are brutal on my back and knees due to the way i land. so landing on flex boards rock for me. i have more fun all around on flex. if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Try the LF Groove. I used to ride the Fish and have moved on to the Groove and found it to be pretty similar. It's not quite as wide as the Fish, but it is nice and loose. It's Colin Harrinton's new pro model.

I just went from a 2001 LF Trip to a 2009 LF Lyman. I asked a similar question recently on WW, and got sold on the Lyman (partially because of price). I'm going out for the first time with the new board this monday, and I will let you know my thoughts. I'm no pro, but I'm really looking forward to finding out how much the board makes a difference compared to rider stance and ability. My original thought was getting air and doing tricks was 90% ability and 10% board, but I'll find out soon...

I think it's closer to 95% ability and 5% board

I'd check out either the Hyperlite Tribute or the B-Side. Both are very "consistant" and pretty loose until on edge. With the rounded edges on both theyre very forgiving and the haul ass.

Add the 2010 CWB Vibe to your demo list as well.
