My Beloved Witness is Dying - Help Picking a New One


Recommended Posts

A couple too many rough landings and my beloved 2008 LF Witness has an unrepairable crack.  It's heavy, but I always keep coming back to it, and last night was it's last run.  I like how easy it is to break free and slide but transition back to an edge.  Landings were okay.  The rails and lip are my favorite features.  It's a little tail heavy but I was used to that.

The new board I have right now that I don't like and want to sell is a Ronix Space Blanket Air Core.  I love the Ronix One bindings so I'd like to stay with a board that'll take those bindings.  I don't like the Space Blanket though.  I've put enough time into it now that I know it's just not the rust on my skills.  It's just not what I find fun.  It's slower with more drag in the water than I like and I haven't learned to like it despite trying.  It also feels rougher in even a little chop.  I like how it launches, but not how it lands.

I was thinking the 2021 Parks might be right.  Continuous instead of 3-stage.  Y'all who're still wakeboarding and keeping up with innovations and board styles I hope read this and offer up some opinions.  What's a good direction for my next board?  Keep in mind I'm only a little better than a beginner.  Wake to wakes both directions, the occasional 180, lots of slides and surface skim stuff and skateboard tricks.  But no big air.  No Inverts or off-axis.

2019.  I picked it up last fall on clearance.  I also picked up a LF Aero Remedy.  The board may have been great but the Riot bindings didn’t fit me quite as well as the RXT bindings.  I ended up selling the LF.
