Has anyone ridden on one of these? I was at the store yesterday and they had one of these boards, WOW!

They weigh next to nothing. Seriously, the board is super light! I would love to get it, but it cost about $800. (http://boardco.com/shopexd.asp?id=12037) just for the board

I think once the competition start getting to use some of the same material the price will drop.

It is crazy to pay $800 for just a wakeboard,

I'd wait a little while and get a slightly used one off ebay

They are so new that I don't think we will see any used for a few months.

i have one and love the board but ive already cracked two of them... it has pretty good pop and edges strong.. but i think b.c of the weight it makes it feel a little lose till you get ust to riding it

Why did they cracked? Is it because the material that makes it so light it is not as strong?

why it cracked i dont know after a day of riding i take all my gear and wash it off with fresh water and wiped all of our board down... but i was doing a tramptrum and ate it extremely hard and when i got to the boat a friend say dude u cracked the board... luckily the board shop i go to i became friends with the owner and ride allot with him and he just gave me another sub 6 and said he'll send it back and deal with it and dont worry about it....

and my other one the tips just cracked in half but im still riding this one till i can get another one... at work tomorrow ill take pics of the board and u can see where there cracked at. to me its crazy b/c from what i understand carbon fibber is thought to be supper strong
