This is going back a bit, but can anyone who has ridden both of these boards give me a rundown on the difference in ride between these boards....
The 06 (red pirhanas) had the double concave with a foam core and the 07 (dark blue board art) changed to wood core.
Any comments would be appreciated.
Go the 07 as we had a couple of the 06 boards snap. No 07 boards have done this as yet. Guess the wood core stands up to more punishment, and has a natural flex pattern.
I know of at least one 07 board that has snapped. Underground did replace it under warranty though---they're sweet dudes over there!
I have heard that the 06's had better pop than the 07's.....any truth to that?
snapped a 06 board and received a wood core replacement in a "deal". Top blokes.
06 for me doesn't handle the chop as well and is slightly more bumpy.
07 is smoother and has more feel it(probably why you get better pop?). Its well worth (IMO) buying a 07(or 08 if you have the cash) over an 06.
oh yeah, footpads are way more comfy.
I recently bought an 07 from my mate, which I thought was pretty good but upgraded to the 08, the 07 has a littel more spray coming off it but not a big deal really. I found the 08 has excellent wave handling characteristics, and the foot pads are by far the most comfy I have used.
i have got an 07 for sale need to recover from the financial trauma of buying a new board
