It's a 4 year old design. Spend your money on something newer.

Take a look at the AIRUSH WAKESTYLE boards. I heard good things about them, thinking about getting one.
The UK Kitesurf mag tested it, and they loved it. See test on AIRUSH website.

Well the board is not bad.
It is easy to run upwind, and it needs already a lot of kitepull.
Same shape was used by starboard, but this board is even more heavy.
The quality is alright, but could be better.
In our days the board is too heavy to perform top airshows.
I enjoyed it a lot in choppy waves.
And the design is still top.
If you get it second hand and cheap, why not.
Have fun,
Thisl

it's a good board. i haven't seen the SIN version around here, but the original pickelfork shape is still up-to date and works fine.

the 161 is very very big, though.
i've seen guys riding it as a light-wind board when the 140 wakestyle boards are too small ...

Get a 2002 twintip. Try lots of diferent ones before buying one. Good shopping.

I used one with straps when I was learning and it was not bad, it runs well through chops but as soon as I started jumping I changed inmediately (it's too heavy)for a 160 Brunotti twin tip (very light). I personally don't like wakeboards very much but if you get a good deal on a used one, get it. If not, get something smaller and lighter.
