I felt real comfortable on the board though coming from a parks camber board. I noticed this board sends me into the flats a lot easier but that could just be cause im coming in faster with the extra glide speed than I am used to. I may go ahead and pick one of these up it was a fun board. Also, I was on the air core version and its super light.
I currently ride a 2015 144 parks aircore, how would compare the pop of the space blanket to the parks? How much faster does the space blanket feel?

I'm glad I found this post...I'm shopping for a new board & boots and after doing some more research on Parks air core 2, I'm super excited and interested on this board. The soft landings and being easy on the knees is exactly what this 42yr old needs!! I'm going into my third year of wakeboarding, I've been riding an Obrien ACE 142 board..it's an OK board, the bindings got destroyed last year after a fall.

Anyway if you guys have any other info or suggestions it's greatly appreciated. Alex

If your wanting something with soft landings that cater to the knees but may limit your trick Arsenal look at the slingshot nomad in a 150,155 or even. 160

Hey Brian I saw your thread on the nomad. I will definitely look into it.

46 with ****ty knees - I've not ridden anything that landed as soft as my bandwagon camber (whatever they call the light/fly core)

I came across the other thread on the SS Nomad and all the posts were positive..so I think riding a 155/160 board is def a possibility.

One of the owners of the shop where I bought my nomad and Kruz is actually the reason I bought the two boards. He personally rides a nomad a Kruz and a Ronix one and everything he said on the nomad made it a no brainier. He said he gets the biggest air off the nomad due to the length of the board and incline of the wake ramp. He also said he had ridden just about every board made including the camber boards and that it is more forgiving on big air and especially on choppy water.

Just other FYI info. I went back and fourth for weeks between the Kruz and the parks camber board and finally made my decision on the Kruz because so many people complained about the drag speed. I also heard to many people saying it's cool but it's so different that if you get used to riding front foot heavy like it requires that it throws off your balance riding non camber boards.

The pop I believe is similar to the parks. I get about the same air I did on the parks board last year but find it much easier to land out in the flats. I believe this is due to the increased glide speed. I feel like it has a ton more glide speed than the parks. My buddy rides last years timebomb and he said the space blanket feels slow. Lol I told him to ride my parks board and he will know what slow really feels like. If you check out my instagram (lawmaster891) I have a couple vids of me on the space blanket as well as vids last year on the parks to compare. I am no pro though. I started trying tantrums my last couple rides of last season and just couldnt get them. My ride last weeekend I did a big tantrum and landed out in the flats my second try. I hope to get some vids of that this weekend. I love the space blanket so far!

I agree, I hopped on my buddies timebomb last weekend and it threw me off. I was still able to ride and hit the wake fine. I did catch an edge on a landing unexpectedly being used to the camber. I dont think my balance was terribly thrown off though. I like the cambered boards though. On the cambered boards I don't seem to get hurt near as bad as i had on regular boards, I sprang my mcl last summer and caught an edge to where I was coughing up blood. Not sure if it is because of progression or the board itself though.

purchased a 2015 Nomad 155. saved some money by getting a 2015 model, can't wait to try it. It's a beast of a board for sure

Congrats on the purchase in sure you will love it. Post up a review after your first ride. Do you get any bindings to go with it?

I have a 2016 Ronix air core Space Blanket for sell! - I ride the Bill and love it, for some reason thought I should try something new and got the Space Blanket. When I rode it like it was meant to be ridden it was boosty and had nice soft landings, but every time I started to get comfy I would go for something and just eat it! Actually knocked my self out on a 360! So I got the new 2016 Bill and love it! So any one looking for a great deal on a air core space blanket hit me up!
