That´s a good point... So out of these, wich brand has a freeride/freestyle board with the following caracteristics: very light weight, great pop, great upwind, good lowend, super comfortable in chop.
This would be my next board



Try Xenon Laluz, I have one, and IMO that board have everything that you are looking for
5!

Those two things are apposing values. Stiffer board = better pop = less comfortable

LF Bindings are not Naish pads & straps :roll:

As I said earlier, the Naish Apex pads & Straps do fit my Dundee & my Speedball :thumb:

Next you will be saying the screw tread is different between Shinn & LF :roll:


Again I can't say anything about Naish Apex pads, I have no experience with them. I am curious how they can fit on a Dundee though as I own one and I can't fit LF pads on it because it's not a 6" spread:

have you tried screwing it in? sometimes it looks like it won't fit until you actually put it all together.

my buddy that has a shinn board has ronix boots on them, which have a 6" spread so it should be standard

You can't even thread the screw.

This is a known issue with Shinn boards:

I suppose the Naish Apex bindings and Ronix boots have more wiggle room in them and can be made to fit 155 mm spacing.

should be fine with north, slingshot, best, cabrinha, liquid force, naish, tona, flexifoil, xenon, axis, ocean rodeo, blade... that's all I can think of off the top of my head

If I had my Dundee I would gladly take pictures and post them up. Unfortunately a scumbag stole my board off the beach three weeks ago :angryfire:

It had my LF comp pads & straps fitted to it, with exactly the same base your pictures show. Like someone else said, fit the screws and then you can get full movement from the pad base

My GF rides a Monk and she has had some LF stilettos fitted to her board for the past couple of years. She's now has SS Joints fitted

OK, so I had a Shinn Red arrive on demo today

I've fitted my Naish Apex to the red, showing you have full movement with the base plate

I appreciate they are not the best quality. But you do get the idea :D
