G'day mate i own the Team series 133cm.

Previous boards, cab custom 08-09

Board is FAST,, it really is a mean piece of work 8) . I have only had two sessions on it so far so i'm yet to get a full idea on the board.
It it pops and lands very nicely. kills the customs in going upwind. The new core design works great. helps to keep the speed up while edging hard i found. If you ride in the surf id recommend the Jamie over the team series, the team series feel quite sketchy when rolling from heel side through to toe side.

hope i shed some light on it
Alex

In the choppy crappy waves is swing more towards the 2010 Jamie or the momentum. The jamie would be my pick between the two because of its round outline.

p.s. I work for a kite store, but we sell both north and naish so im in no way biast. I own bits of every brand.

Does the 2010 board have 6'' inserts for new wakeboard boots?

Tested team 133.
Great board indeed.
Compared to my Thorn 2009 feels much softer, therefore it is smoother trough the chop,rides higher and I felt instantly comfortable with it.
The board is fast but the Thorn is faster. Anyway that never been so important for me.
Pops very good and being softer than my Thorn allows to control the edge very good.
Thorn is/or it feels much stiffer, pops better but lacks control in overpovered conditions.
Pads and straps are very good no big changes, exept the pad softness /interesting/adjustments.

The fins are different story.
It`s difficult to understand why a respected company can release dangerous product like that.
The fins are sharp like knife.Since it`s my friends board and he keeps his board on the back seat of his car, he tried to replace the board for someone to sit there,he got very nice cut from the fins.
Thats all from grabbing the board.
Can`t imagine what could happen if he is dragged over the board.
