All feed back on the Cardboard range has been good. Localy built boards customised to the way you want them.
It would be hard to do a good review as nearly everyboard built is diferent made just the way you like it. There is a few around Whyalla and they all seem to like them. I think if you realy know what you want in a board then you should be able to tick all of your boxes with a cardboard. But if you realy dont know much about boards and what would be best for you give them a PM and they will help you out and give you the board you want.
The graphics look great and the one i tryed was a tempo, was fairly skatey but that is what the owner was chasing. I liked the foot straps with the two velcro straps so you could tension the toeside down a bit more. For the price i think you realy get a good board. I think they are still around the $850 mark a lot cheaper than most majour brands.
not sure about this year's but the 2009 hardware was not well thought out.
the fins came with imperial allen-head screws whilst the straps had phillips head screws and the handle was metric allen-head. three tools for the hardware is ridiculous.
the hole placement for the straps was a lot narrower than standard so you couldn't put other straps on.
other than that my tempo was a pretty good board, but a bit too flexy for my liking.
i really like my tempo, as per the other replys-awesome graphics (n heaps to choose from), built well, extremely light, huge fan of the straps and pads-really comfortable, and the bottom of my board is a quad concave so its not as skatey as some of the other boards... really good value at 850 delivered and great customer service, wud def buy one of em again in the future
hi i ride a tempo with the double concave not four, custom board had it for a year now perfect all round board for the price, just a wisper new board out soon called the pro cant wait , oh have to agree on the different size screws not the best idea hope new ones are all the same screw sizes. it would be nice to be able to change foot straps if u wanted.
Can't comment too much on the performance as I have not been out on the water much since mine was delivered, nice selection of graphics and great construction quality though.
We are currently working on our 2011 boards and the Tempo range in particular at the moment. We have done more R&D and testing on proto this season than ever before and it is showing in the ride quality.
We are going back to a standard 152mm insert pattern for this coming season, so no more strap assembly issues.
I will hopefully have some pics after Easter of some pre-production boards, i will give a sneak preview.
Hey Cardboard Guys
How did the Easter testing Go
Any pics yet???
