What TTs you think are best for fast riding and then big airs on flat water?
Select, Raptor, 2HD, NHP...?

I really like my Monk Forever to do that :thumb: But there is many other boards that are also good at this.

Nope not the monk forever on flat water. Better off on a street or super shinn much better feedback, squarer tips and less flex to give you that control and load potential. The monk is superb riding flat out and boosting off a wave platform not on the flat the feedback is not enough.

Not saying you can't on the monk but there are better boards even in the shinn range. That is not its design profile nor my experience on it and others as you may find out if you do your research.

I will let others give their opinion on the right board but it is not the monk.

Carved Imp 5 so fast sooo smooth! I just switched from RRD Obsessions to North Vegas, the board jumps even better than I thought, the Vegas just pulls you striaght up and the Imp 5 is a pop monster. :angryfire:
