Thanks so much for sharing your feedback... So here is the conclusion to my dilemma... I am so lucky... I ended up getting both, the raptor pro ltd and the la luz.... And I'm loving it. Both are great boards.., the ltd is a bit more freeride and a bit lighter, but has plenty of pop for freestyle. The la luz is a bit more freestyle and a bit heavier than ltd, but still super comfortable. Both are awesome boards, and are the perfect match for my rpm's. cannot be happier. Can't go wrong with either one.
Ps. Was lucky enough and got both boards as bday presents, one from my wife and the other from parents in law. What can I say... I am just lucky. Well, the only caveat is that twisted my ankle kiting in Cabarete last week, so now I'm wearing a boot hoping to recover in about 6 weeks. Hard landing not paying attention
Anyway, I will be back... Soon.
