:D nice one

Here are your options.
LF DLX,LFX
Tona POP

This are the ones that come on my mind now, there are others.

What do you prefer in terms of stiffness and rocker?

No, I'm not that pretty.

It really depends on what you want in the board, it's like asking "What is the best car?" It might be a Rolls Royce, or a Ferrari, or it might be a Toyota Corolla because you're broke. It depends on what you're looking for.

Personally I ride the Liquid Force Influence, because it has a ton of pop, and has just a little less rocker than the "pure" wakestyle boards, which I think is a little better for our conditions because it is so choppy, you lose lots of speed going over every wave. It rides pretty well finless too without channels. If I had perfect flat water every session I would probably ride the DLX because the extra rocker is awesome.

I wish I had the answer for you. I just don't feel any of the wakestyle boards are really well wake enough. They all seem to flexi to deliver the goods. I'm personally on the fence about what to do about a new board. Thinking of going custom but that could be very pricey and not even deliver.

Problem is everyone will tell you what they ride is the best, mags are nothing but adverts for kite companies, and the rest of the info comes from team riders. Hard to make an honest decision if you can't just try every board out in every type of condition you ride in and that would take a long ass time.

The term wakestyle means what really? Yaya I know everyone will tell me...... :jump:

We should actually talk about rocker and flex numbers and get away from these other hyped expressions of what is wakestyle or free-whatever. These are the main characteristics that really change how a board pops or goes upwind or handles chop etc.

Cheers and have a smooth windy 2013 guys.

For me the Xenon Infra is #1 for wakestyle but if the water is very very choppy then the Xenon LaLuz Or the 2013 Fone Acid are my favorites.

Previously I rode with Cabrinha Custom but after trying Aboards W-series switched to this board. With W-series its much easier to make turns and massive pop.

Lots of good boards on the market.

I prefer the Tona Pop 138.

Ride one if you can. Tona has reps happy to demo their boards all around the world.
