Definitely check out the Remotes. They are so good.
I ride behind a seadoo, boat, and cable a lot and love it in every situation.
There is no difference between the 2012s and 2013s. They dont really have model years, they just do different graphic changes a couple times a year similar to skateboards. The shape is really good and the boards last longer than any other wood deck so I wouldnt change a good thing.
The ONE change is that the most current Horan is one ply thinner (same as the Taylor).
