Why are you all into riding boots on a freestyle board, not build to withstand the high loads of boots
when there exists a pure hadlow-wakestyle board for boots: http://www.hadlowcollection.com/boards-wakestyle/

^ Also rode the Hadlow wakestyle, it definitely was tougher than the freestyle (by about 6 months).

Is the Hadlow fast on the water?

I used to ride the previous generation, and it was very fast, granted, I've only tried a hand-full of boards, and not all the same exact size, but of the boards I've tested of the size of the Hadlow, the Hadlow blows them all out of the water in overall performance, and I always felt this board gets up on a plane super fast, again comparing to the other boards I've tried.

I liked most the stability of this board, even when you land super hot, feels super fast, but under control, unlike other boards that I've used, felt a bit ... not sure I know the right word, but perhaps woobly, and you feel a bit out of control, the hadlow makes you feel safe when you land a bit too hot in choppy water (my conditions), even with the tiny fins the board grips beautifully. I like to go fast, and this board is a monster, I really enjoyed ridding it.

Good luck with it.

Why are so much people selling their Hadlow Mk2? I've seen at least 4 ads and maybe they are deceived?
