wake style board usually have more rocker.

Coustom, Joke, Arcade (5-6cm, almost as stiff as dlx), Profanity have huge roker. DLX (4cm, very stiff) has less roker. POP (4-5cm, tips have a bit of flex) has a bit more than DLX. This are just the boards i had im my hands.

Liquid Force DLX
Tona Pop
Aboards W-Series
Cabrinha Custom (if you want a board that delaminates)
Best Profanity
Slingshot Asylum
North Gambler
Naish Arcade
Wainman Joke


You can probably pick up a DLX that is 1-2 years old pretty cheap, and they are great boards.

The bottom will probably be f***** up if it was used o sliders, or beach starts. They have pretty shitty soft bottom that don't hold up to abuse very well.

Been riding the Cabrinha custom for the past year and I love this board. Heads up though...the stance is wider than most TTs. Great to ride finless too.

Airush Livewire (1st choice)
Flexifoil Hadlow Freestyle (funnest board I've ever owned)
Airush FS & FS Park (If you can find it)
Tona Pop

if you're not riding boots, Airush FS Team

Don't get a Cabrinha Custom older than 2012...they look much better in terms of construction in the later models, I had a 2010, was seriously unimpressed a week after purchase.

^ Pretty sweet deal on an awesome board.

Be careful getting BIG ROCKER. Too much and u will need to go over Niagra Falls to get on a Plane. Unless, you are in the Pop Corn Fart weight class. :desperado: :desperado: :desperado: :desperado: :happybirthday: :happybirthday: :happybirthday: :happybirthday:

Went with the 2012 cab custom. was $150.00 cheaper than the 2013 model..

Actually really liked it, seem to be able to edge and load it up more then my nhp. unless i was just having a good day it seems a real nice board.

Thanks for all the imput.

I have Aboards Wseries and really happy with it. This board is a bomb! Great with boots as well.
Check out these nice pics with Wseries in action (not mine unfortunately)
