So basically I'm about to get my first board as a graduation present, and I'm torn between the O'Brien Player and O'Brien Natural. Does anyone have any experience with these boards, not trying to ask which one is better but can i please get some help with pro's and con's for both.

P.S: I'm not just some kid that all the sudden wants to wakeboard, I've been riding for about two years, just bumming off of friends to use their boards.

Try get your hands on a decade! Simply incredible! Threw me off the first couple jumps because I wasn't used to that kinda boot and speed!

All the boards mentioned, Player, Natural, and Decade are Daniel Watkins' pro models of various years. The player is the oldest and the decade is the most recent.

The biggest difference (if i am not mistaken) between the player and natural is the natural (and decade) has the "delta base" - technology taken from the hulls of racing boats. this is supposed to speed up the board. obrien has been using it on all their high end boards since introducing it. i personally have not ridden one with the delta base, but hear alot about them from those who have.
