Sup fellas. Iíve been on an LF Remedy for 5 seasons, and as my riding style progressed Iím looking for a new board. I LOVE the way the remedy popped, but itís super locked into the water. Tracks like a train so itís not as fun to break loose and get surfy.

So Iím looking for a board that has an aggressive and abrupt pop but is easier to break loose. I donít want it to be so loose that itís hard to track into the wake, but just loose enough to break free. I Donít love flex boards. Never been a hyperlite guy, but now that they picked up Twelker I canít help but lean toward their boards hahaha their team is one of my favorites.

Open to suggestions but hereís what Iím thinking:

Hyperlite:
New Rusty
Blue Print
Nova
Source
Ronix One
LF RDX
LF
Connelly Standard

I know thereís a lot there but my shop doesnít allow demoes so Iím back here at trusty wakeworld! Thanks guys!!

Highly recommend the riot. Super fun shape, aggressive, poppy and playful not locked in

Interesting to recommend the Riot; I went from the Remedy to the Riot and didnít like it at all! Iíve only got 2 sets on the RXT but so far it definitely checks the boxes; fast, rails hard when you want, breaks free easy and tons of pop... also crazy light.

Id be all over the RXT if I could find an old one for cheaper than 800 bones I just canít justify spending that much especially because my remedy is still fine and will get the job done. Any boards similar to the RXT that I wonít have to sell my kidney for?? Lol

I have a pretty good deal on a 2016 CWB Standard, does anyone know how it would ride and pop as compared to the remedy?

Why not experiment with smaller fins? How big are the ones you are using now? I am not familiar with that board but it looks like it has replaceable fins.

I agree 100% with the fins. My friend grinded some of his liquid force fins down and it rode like a completely different board. I think he even left the edges blunt. Another experience is with my Ronix board, they had 0.8" grind fins with blunt edges and 1" fins with sharp edges that it came with. It was a small difference in the size comparison, but I did not like how the board rode with the 1" fins - too much traction and released off the wake really late (no forgiveness to mistakes).
