I'm in the market for a new board. My last board was a 2005 or 2006 Hyperlite parks bonifay with parks boots. The last 3 years i've ridden a combined maybe 10 times due to school. Finally, I am able to get back into wakeboarding. Unfortunately my board cracked last weekened.
I don't know much about new boards as haven't paid attention to the industry in a while. I've gone to a few shops and spoke to some people and I like the sounds of the Ronix viva. I've been looking for good deals online and I realize there is a bunch of 2012 Ronix viva modello board with viva bindings around for great deals. For example: http://www.amazon.com/Ronix-Modello-...3500116&sr=1-7
I am curious, is the 2012 board similar to 2013? The abundance of cheap Viva's almost worries me - was something wrong with that board or is it a good choice. I don't need a 2013 board if i can get the 2012 model for half price, so is it a good choice?
I ride mainly behind the boat, and do the basic inverts - scarecrow, backroll, etc. Is this board fine for that stuff?
Any thoughts and/or recomendations are much appreciated. thanks.
