that's the full carbon board? it felt super flexy to me, i don't think I'd want to put boots on it

Yeah I really liked the procreator. Perfect flex and not a ton of rocker which is good for conditions here. if i had flat water id probably get something with a bit more rocker

Dayylan have you tried the armada with boots? I have the armada v2 and would like to put boots on it.

I haven't, my buddy who rides for best is currently on the armada (waiting for the new procreator) and he says that it works ok. It's still a pretty flexy flat board so it won't be ideal for boots but it works

Can't answer that one, but it's always a risk on boards that are built for straps... they just aren't typically meant to handle the additional force that boots pull with when you bail. I'd guess that you'd be okay if you're not going big but I know it's something I'd always worry about haha.

Really? So what do they do with the inserts/construction for a wakestyle board thats different compared to a standard board? Or is it just an easy way to sell 2 boards instead of one? I tend to think the later.
