I finally got to demo a SU-2 Proseries. I tried the bamboo a while back and it was a great board but not quite fitting for my riding. I was looking for something a bit more grabby and explosive. The Proseries board I demoed was an older model 2009. The new evolution of the board for 2011 is the Syntax to my understanding. Which just got introduced this last week.
Short & sweet mini review of the 2009 Proseries:
LIGHT board - do they even get lighter than this?
Construction - the finishing on the board is flawless.
Pop - this board has a unique shape to it (similar to Wainman Blunt) and it really adds an extra kick
Grabby - this board loves powered turns. It really grips with an edge.
Skatey - when planning on the surface the board still retains a bit of a skatey feel.
Big arch in the foot pad - For most people this would be really good but I have flat feet. (the pads have been totally redesigned for 2011 tho)
Fin placement - the fins are a bit too close to the center for my liking. (2011 are closer to the edge tho)
Alright pretty much this review is just to shine light on a company that doesn't get much attention in my opinion. I doubt many of you care about an older board but once I get to try out the 2011 I can then post on here my findings and do a comparison. They have had it dialed in for years and people swear by their boards but 2011 looks like they have reached perfection (although I am gonna miss the graphics on this board)
