Lunacy replacement?

Postby jespin4845 » Mon Jan 28, 2013 3:09 am

I used to have a misfit about a year ago and started to go towards high rockered boards for a while, but i miss that flat rocker upwind ability and speed...reading about the lunacy back in 2010 135x43...a lot of big guys wrote about the low end being great, like a mini glide...

looking at the darko, is that anything like the lunacy? or is there any other board that has the flat rocker in that small compact package

dont care about chop or ride...want that stiff flat freestyle board

Then you cannot simply go wrong with the Carved Tantrum. Flat, very stiff, very light and super fast. I love mine. They even make them in sizes that you want

Give the Xenon Infra try. You won't give it back.

+ 2 for the Xenon Infra.
Watch the new Andy Yates video, he's using an Infra.
Great pop and landings are sooo easy with the Infra. Though For choppy days I do prefer the LaLuz.

Another board in this category (stiff & flat, for great pop and upwind ability) is the Skywalker X / Skywalker Yo board. The company changed management and they are not selling new boards at the moment, but used ones can be found on the second hand market.
