Before commenting I would like to know what conditions are you riding?Da Yoda wrote:In the 5'4 lengths, I found out the Cypher is 2" thick and has their "Flying V" dual concave bottom shape. The Prisma is 2" thick as well with a single concave bottom shape. Both boards seem to be geared towards the same application, so I'm now just trying to narrow it down to ride quality and durability. I do like the fact that Cypher uses the Futures Fin System and has a concave deck, but I like the shape of the Prisma better for some reason.
Unfortunately I don't have the option to demo these boards, so I'm hoping someone on here will have some useful feedback for me soon. Thanks!
I have not ridden the Xenon, but have ridden virtually every airush board in nearly every size with a lot of favourites over the years, but the last year or two have seen some definite progress. Very fond of the new Compacts this year 2014 - they really turned a corner, though they are probably a bit fast and locked in for you. The Cypher replaced the Choptop and it was a big step forward. Still has the balance, comfort, light and high load practicality of the choptop, but it hugely more capable on the rail...Da Yoda wrote:I'm trying to get some info about the ride qualities and durability of these two boards (Cypher bamboo). I'm interested if anyone has tried these boards and could even possibly compare them.
Thanks for taking the time to respond guys. Mike... your review is quite helpful and reassuring.Schmidy wrote:Before commenting I would like to know what conditions are you riding?
Onshore slop, cross-shore, lightwind, strong winds?
What is your size? Height, weight
What is your previous board you have been using or what is making you consider these specific dimensions over something else?
The Airush boards use a Surf Finz box, which is an adjustable box that is compatible with FCS fins.
