So I'm interested in the phalanx prk board for rail/cable, winch, and a little bit of W2W riding. I saw one in Orlando and this thing def looked and felt bombproof! I'm just wondering how it rides. I mainly ride a lf Watson hybrid and a lf press. Does this board ride anything like the hybrid. I preffer a board to be as loose as possible with decent pop and soft landings. I def hit rails and winch more than I ride boat so is this board for me? I'd love to hear some feedback.

if you would like i can put you in touch with our team rider Ian Smith. You probably saw his board in Orlando, and he has the most time on the PRK board as far as I know. He is at OWC pretty much every day! I am not sure if he is using it behind the boat, he usually rides a CW, but he can probably answer any questions you have. I will say that if you spend most of your time on rails or at the cable you will love the PRK series. it really is bombproof!

Boards are insanely strong. A few pics from an incline waterfall/ramp rail hit last summer. We ride the boars primarily winching but we have a cable opening in June so ill ride that more and more.

I ride finless at all times; even wake to wake. (I know it's technicaly wrong, I don't care). My concern is that this board will still track more than I like. I only want it to track when it's on edge. Would this boards looseness be camparable w the watson hybrid?

hahaha, its all good! i know Ian is the same way, he rides his CW behind the boat with no fins. if you bump into him again ask him to take it for a spin, he would be happy to oblige! i wish i could chime in with personal experience, but i wont get to ride mine until next week. maybe i can get Tarek to chime in, hes been rocking one for quite a while now.

Just a heads up for anyone thats interested, the PRK series boards are now available for pre-order at www.phalanxwake.com. or contact me if you have any questions! anyone that is looking for the ultimate cable/park board should scoop one of these up while you can. this is a board that you will not have to replace every 6 months, its built to handle a beating. Check them out!!
