I currently have a IS black pearl and phase 5 drew danielo. I really like the look of the soulcraft and would love to try one of the boards out but nobody around me (NE Indiana) sells them. Is anyone looking to sell one for a fairly decent price? I'm 6' 190lbs

My friend Scott, sandm01 on WakeWorld lives in Wisconsin and rides Soulcraft boards. Don't know how far away he is but you might be able to get together for some surfing.
Are you wanting to change styles of boards from skim to surf? I have 4 Soulcrafts, 1 skim and 3 surf style and love all of them. My favorite is my Fang Tail but I have heard good things about the Da Honu too.

I prefer skim style but I've only tried 1 surf style. It was a shredd stixx thresher. I've been reading a lot about the Da honu as well and I think that is the board I want but I've also heard good things about the fang tail and would be willing to give it a try.

The Fangtail will feel very different from your skim boards. It takes a few rides to feel comfortable on a thicker board with fins and then there is no going back to your old board! I love how fast you can catch up when you pump a couple of times.
I may get to try a friends Da honu this weekend. It is a newer shape board for Soulcraft, so it would be hard to find used.

Check out some Doomswell boards too... Just as nice as a soulcraft and quite a bit less expensive.

I rode a Soulcraft and a Doomswell Drone Squashtail back to back. I am not sure of the soulcraft model, as it was a custom. The soulcraft was good, the Doomswell was F***ing fantastic. OMG, loved that board so much. Like it was made for me!

Do want.

The doomswell that I rode (drone) was most certainly surf style. I would thing their boards are likely to be more surf centric.

I've got a couple of soulcraft boards to check out if you are ever up in the green bay area. love to take riders out..

I loved my soulcraft until I put a set of blacksticks under it that Jeff sent me. now I REALLY love the soulcraft. fins can make just as much of a difference as the overall shape/size..

Whenever you ride a board and feel like that afterwards, you should definitely buy it!

Trust me, it's almost certainly going to be my next board. It's just the $$$ that's holding me back...

Maybe Santa will bring it for me instead of a lump of coal.

I sent an email to soulcraft a few days ago but never got a response back. After all the talk about doomswell I decided to call Brock and tell him what I was looking for. After a nice conversation I decided to place an order for a Neo. Unfortunately it won't be here for a month but I am stoked none the less. Thanks for the feedback

Sorry you didn't get a reply from Soulcraft. I know Jeff the owner and no one works harder than he does. I should have given you his phone number he answers texts faster than e-mails.
Glad you got a board ordered though. Now is the hard part waiting to ride a new board!

I was bummed I didn't hear back. I really want to try the da honu. Maybe next time

I rode a friends da honu today. It was awesome!!! Compared to my fangtail it took less pumping to keep up with the boat. It was a longer board than my fangtail but had an entirely different feel. No twiner fins just two fins. I really enjoyed it and would like to spend more time on one.
Here is a picture of the Da Honu from this afternoon.

Thanks it's an older Tige that belongs to the guy that bought the Da Honu.

Yeah, I've already talked to Brock about boards and stuff. I was just curious what the premium was. I don't have the cash right now to throw down, so don't wanna bother him when I'm not able to pull the trigger. (I still want one, just need to save up for it and knew my target price until I saw yours and fell in love with the blue)

Dave that is a beautiful board! I haven't seen another Soulcraft like it. Is it a fangtail and your going no traction? I have a long board that doesn't have any traction, I just wax it. I love the way you can move your feet around to the position that you want on it.

I really like the looks of that board. I wish I would have had jeff do that same design for my longboard. that "wood" finish would look sick on a board with some length...
congrats....

I took the picture before I had a chance to put the traction on it. It has the black Soulcraft traction on it now. Thanks for the compliments on the board really stoked on it. Just finishing up my NSS about 95% complete with the install. I want to go out and ride it 😄.

So, I have a little something that shipped on Thursday. 6 weeks ago I pulled the trigger on a Doomswell Nubstep 4'6". The day after I ordered it, my wife got in touch with Brock and had him put some custom graphics on it for me. Definitely a tribute to my recently sold boat (Stormtrooper) and the new boat (Yes, we're calling it the Death Star).

I am super stoked to ride it. Should show up on Thursday. I rode a 4'4 Drone squashtail and from the sounds of it, the Nubstep should be a slight step up in capabilities from the drone, so I'm taking a chance on riding an unknown, but the Drone blew my mind, so I'm stoked for the Nubstep.

I ordered the board with black traction down the center and blue traction on the outsides, but Agenda was backordered and Brock wanted to get me on the water sooner, so he's gonna hook me up with the right colors when he gets them in. Serious customer service there.

I got an offer from a forum member on the Moomba forum to buy their 2008 Moomba Mobius XLV 23'. I have always been in love with the playpen bow and all the storage that gains (I can put an 1180 gravity games center sack in the locker under the playpen). And the price was right and the color scheme perfect. I also love the flip up backrests for the bow, the observer walkthrough seat, and even the bench seat behind the driver (similar to the Axis chillax seats). It even has the ability to do the double up bench seat where the rear bench slides back and allows for two to sit rear facing.

I put the Supra "Stormtrooper" Sunsport on CL and sold it in 48 hours. I've taken the XLV out 4 times over 2 weekends and it's been a blast. I plan on re-doing the ballast pumps over the winter, making a custom surf platform, and probably a ghetto gate. Plus LED mods over the winter as well. It will basically be my "forever boat".









I upgraded the tower cans to the kicker 6500.2 HLCD setup. beyond that it's got kicker amps, polk inboats, two 12" polk subs, and an Exile ZLD. Also has the monster cargo bimini. I'm very happy.

Us local guys should just plan a demo day where we all meet up and exchange boards and share our waves. I have a soulcraft squash tail, a soulcraft fang tail, a soulcraft Jimmy 6, a soulcraft long board, a phase 5 xl carbon Drew and an old inland carbon rail green loogy. If we do it in the spring I will also have a soulcraft DA honu and a soulcraft skim

Trayson, sweet board. A word of caution on the 2008 XLV, the hinges on the flip up seats on the play-pin are flimsy and Moomba used very short screws that might pull up, mine did on my 2008 XLV. Also, if you live in the south beware of the fuel pump vapor lick issue in Moombas prior to 2009 because the fuel pump is not in the fuel tank. If it vapor licks pour a few bottles of cold water on the fuel pump and it'll cure the vapor lock and the engine will run normal. Just some FYI for you.

Ya you can sign me up for that!
I should have some new stuff to ride at the beginning of next season to contribute.


TO OP:
You can't go wrong with a Soulcraft, they are awesome boards. I have ridden 3 of them and been very happy on each. 2 surf styles and 1 skim. You totally feel the water and what the board and wake are doing. Very intuitive riding experience. If you're looking at Soulcraft, the Soul Skimmer is a great fun board. I'd recommend it, as it's very well balanced between control and looseness for a skim. In comparison to your Danielo, the Soul Skimmer is going to be a little looser and spin easier, but still have amazing control like the Danielo.

The hinges don't seem too bad on the playpen. I'd say that the hinges on the backrest behind the driver are the ones I'd be concerned about...

I'll have to take a pic of the two different hinges that are on the boat.

And thanks for the heads up on the vapor "lick".

So, the above aside, my Doomswell Nubstep was dropped off at my office by fedex today! And I got off work early to pick my son at PDX. we went straight home to a boat that was hitched up and ready to go.

We launched and the river was smooth enough to jump behind the boat right from the launch. In fact, it was so smooth that I busted out the Slalom ski!!!! And it stayed smooth. We were the only wake boat out there. Had the Columbia River to ourselves.

This is what I had the whole night!


Again, it was so smooth that I couldn't resist pulling out the wakeboard. Took a couple runs and was just having a blast. With just the center bag filled, the XLV had a better wakeboard wake than my Supra Sunsport ever did.

Finally, after getting my smooth water ya-ya's, I pulled out my never touched Doomswell. I had the XLV setup with 600 center and probably 900 or so in the rear locker (my 1100 keeps twisting and didn't seem to fill all the way). That said, my wave wasn't legendary by any stretch. However, despite a mediocre wave, the Nubstep did not disappoint. It was crazy fast and I had to put very little effort into staying in the pocket. I was able to ride effortlessly on a wave that I would have been working my butt off with my Ronix Caption or my Ronix One Skimmer. I rode the nubstep with only the two outer thruster fins (the same setup as the Drone I rode previously). I'd have to ride the Drone and the Nubstep side by side to really know which one I liked better. But I was super stoked and I don't regret my purchase at all (okay, not MY purchase, because my wife pulled another sneaky ninja and got the custom graphics added and PAID for the whole board as a present for our 3rd anniversary!!!).

The board was plenty stable. Like the other real surf style boards I've ridden, they are the most stable when they're carving. However, even when I was just chillin on the Nubstep, there was no squirleiness. I felt instantly comfortable on it and I can guarantee that it's my go-to board--period.

As an added bonus, it fits in my padded hyperlite wakeboard bag, so it's going to be babied and protected!

It belongs to a friend of mine, but its always on one of our boats... its not my favorite board, but it isnt horrible you really need to put some work in to it to get the reward. The board is pretty air friendly and you can get shreddy on it (slaysh, bottom turns, etc) but I feel like you really have to stay on top of it in order to keep up with the wave and because of the chopped nose this thing feels like its five miles long as well. If I were a little lighter and younger I might enjoy it more We have run it with numerous fin setups and I feel like just running twins with no trailers produced the best speed, looseness. I had a TM pro model that I liked a little better and I wish I had a chance to ride a jeffery cause it may be more my style...
