I've only ridden the Exile once. Saw it's price and ordered the LF WLF. Rides just as good and goes up wind even better(it's 5 cm longer), lenght IS important! Great board. Handles high speed really well also. Killer pop. Excellent backflips. Carvey. Killer comfortable staps and pads(tad slippery though). And this parts killer! It's made by a company who has been making wake boards for 20 years AND! AND! Its 400.... 4 0 0 . 00 ... FOURHUNDRED dollars LESS. Hello!?!

So far everybody who has tried the EXILE love it. Last year they sold out of EXILE in the USA. Every body who tries the EXILE loves it for light wind, but for more advance riders I would sugest to use 1.5" fins. That will be a big difference on the board. It is going to feel like a small board but still planes in no wind.
A good exemple is Paul Menta who owns a school "The Kite House". He tried the EXILE and love it so much that this year he wants to be on it and order some for his school for light wind.
Now I have not tried the LF so I can tell you what I think about the LF but I know that other riders had the LF and did not like it because it was heavym it was not planning fast. This year the price of the EXILE will be $495 RETAIL and it is even lighter then the 2005.

Sorry they Retail for $498 and not $495 and they should be in the country by the end of December.
Let me know if you need more help. I am on my way to South Africa for some competitions, I will be back on the 23rd of November.

Uh...well... . Dude! The Exile does Rock! Actually it blazes. The WLF's slower and heavier. There. I said it!

I like the Exile over the WLF...WLF is good, but does feel a bit heavy at times. In terms of super light winds, I still don't think the SS Glide can be beat. It is just for the super light stuff, and you definitely want to get off of it when it starts blowing, but it got me out on the water a lot more this year when others couldn't go.
