Need new surfboard for tricks

I have a 66" Ronix Koal which has been great to learn on, but now I want something smaller and more aggressive for tricks. What should I get?

Talk to Bryce at Day 1 wake. He'll make you exactly what you want. HUGE performance difference between custom and production boards.

Youre gonna get a lot of different responses on this. Ive ridden a handful of boards, and my favorite is still the phase 5 prop. Im not a huge fan of surf style though. Some will come tell you soulcraft, which is supposedly a magic surfboard that makes you better. Lol

Soulcrafts are great, but expensive. There's plenty of custom options out there that will surf just as well for 2/3 the price.

Day 1, Doomswell, Shred Stixx, Chaos, XXX, Brigade, etc.

Spin tricks you'll want a skim style. You can still do those on a surf style with the correct fin configuration, just not quite the same. Surf style is pretty fun too, and better for airs. Still plenty of tricks you can do on a surf style.

I'm thinking spins to start with. I was a trick skier in my previous life. Thanks for the responses.

If spins are your preferred trick then you will be happy with the Phase Five skim board...

Here is a video of us (mainly my son )doing 360's on a Phase 5...

Great video, thanks. What do you use for ballast in the x-2?

Stick with the skim style for sure. I have the Danielo (Phase 5) & a Victoria. I have one kid who loves the Phase 5 and one who loves the Victoria. I like the Victoria myself but I'm pretty crappy. Oh, and the Victoria is about $400.00 cheaper.
