Hi,

I'm looking to buy:
Xenon Rayo 2013 130X40
or
CrazyFly Raptor 2013 132X41

I weigh 67 Kg and I'm an intermediate level surfer who wants to start performing tricks.
I can go upwind easily and perform small jumps (2-3 meters high).

Which do you think is more suitable for me?

Thanks!

Well I had a 2013 laluz and rayo in my hands. And I was shocked as to how much flex was in the rayo the apparent freestyle specific board of the two. Is that right? Because for freestyle I'd be on the laluz given the flex characteristics. Both me and the shop owner were surprised.

I have a 2012 132 Laluz and a 138 Rayo. I use the Rayo for light and inconsistent wind. It is a very forgiving board, but I agree with Westozzy that the Laluz is a better bet for freestyle riding/jumping. The Laluz is an awesome board, you can not go wrong buying it.

Laluz it is then, do you know where I can get a good price on a 2013 or should I wait for 2014 release? Any news on 2014 boards?

I'm not sure where you are located, but we have some of the 2013 LaLuz 138s arriving next week for closeout. We've ridden it all season, and love the board!

Go for LaLuz :!: It is a shredding machine but also very soft and comfortable for freeriding.
Can't wait for the 2014 Xenon boards to hit the market.
