The write up from our last demo weekend is here:
We are going to have a ton of boards available to demo on Friday 5/20 at Camp Far West. Everybody would have their recommendations, including us, but you never know what really suits you until you ride. The Walker Project and Shredstixx are 2 great examples. Its like Ford and Chevy to many people. I see some ride one and feel it just fits, and the other awkward. The opposite is true for the next one. It just depends what style fits you.
My son Thomas loves his new Shredstixx Nano, and yet Maddie still prefers her custom 4.0 TWP Signature model. If you can, get to an event and demo some boards. Sorry you are not closer, we are having an event this weekend, and demoing a bunch of boards on Friday 5/21 at Camp Far West lake. We actually had someone come from Indiana to the polar bear event, and Idaho, and AZ. You just can't beat getting to ride a bunch of boards, not to mention the fun of meeting lots of other likeminded wakesurfers.
