I road one of their proto type surf boards and loved it. It took a while to get to market and I haven't purchased it (yet) but I really did love it. It was super fast and is perfect if you don't have a 4' monster wave like some on the forum.

One of my crew has a humanoid Wakeboard and loves it. He's an intermediate rider and it's super fast and responsive for him. The first time he set his progressive edge for a wake jump he rocketed towards the wake so fast he never realized he was at the wake and didn't stand up.

He's been riding it for a year now and really likes it. He's used to it now and is really progressing because of the board.

Personally, I won't ride anything else again.

Love these boards, poppy, but with super forgiving landings. And they're incredibly durable

hey thanks guys - I had heard the same thing about the durability and the landings - I've just ordered one - the 2011's are a pretty decent deal.

Which board did you order? I love the naked wood grain look of the Oracle. Super cool looking board!

temp hit a balmy 50 degrees - took the boat out for it's first run for this season. broke out the drysuit and took my first set on the Humanoid- probably about a 7-10 minute set- nice board, good pop and I seemed to be able to ollie 180 quite a bit easier seemed lighter then my SS, also launched over the wakes pretty easy. I didn't try anything crazy - water temp was only around 45. at this point the first impression is positive. Oh yeah - the Malibu and my crew did fantastic, a great first outing despite the traffic and wind - there was some fishing tournament was taking place-we had a lot of spectators. all went well..
