I tried a Ronix One in 2008 when I bought the X2 - a demo board. It rode nice but every time I landed it slid out on me. I know it's my crap technique but it doesn't happen with other boards. My friend has an O'Brien with 4 fins (not sure of the model) and I love the ride but surface spins are hard work to initiate. A bit too locked in.
With regard to the Transcend, is that better than my 2008 Absolute or will it be the same? I fancy a change but need it to ride rough water. I like the idea of more height than distance. I can clear the second wake quite easily.
Keep throwing ideas at me - I feel like I'm getting somewhere! Thanks!
