I would like to have some opinions about this two boards, specially when riding in low winds (18/25 Km/h)

It's an easy choice, the Spoiler is much better. The solid tail and newer design makes it plane in less wind, yet ride in high winds great too. The Spolier works better in chop too. The pickle fork is bouncy in the nose.

Oops, I thought you asked about the spoiler. I haven't ridden the prankster. The prankster is too thick for my liking. I'd go with the spoiler. Thickness is bad. It doesn't make a board plane in less wind and it hurts high wind performance.

I think these are both good boards.However I have the picklefork 161 an I can say that its wind range is that you are looking for.I think the piclefork can carve better due to its tail shape and it is smoother in choppy water.It's like riding deep powder with a round tail snowboard or a swallow tail one (yeah!!!)

Tikke,

The pickle fork cutout creates pitch instability in a wakeboard. It doesn't work like a snowboard. A cutout snowboard is to help sink the tail and make the nose ride high in powder without making the back leg tired.
On a wakeboard it's bad. That's why they don't make them anymore. The pickle fork is a 3 year old design. Liquid force is just saving money using the same old molds and selling old junk designs.
Ride a newer jimmy lewis shape and you will see how much better a sqaure tail rides. The front foot bounces in chop with a pickle fork. It does not bounce with a square tail. The spoiler is a jimmy lewis shape.
