Good job on that web design.

Jdude - I have seen some Xenon surfboards but am not sure if they were prototypes or production boards.

I as well would like to know if the Surfboards are out yet.

Like the design of that WWW and especially the board selector.
Guess I was riding a smaller size than i should have. I will definitely test a bigger size now.

Board selector - :thumb:
So Xenon are also going with bigger sizes.
Seems like a lot of brands are suggesting bigger and bigger boards in the past 2-3 years.
In 10 years we all be riding 200cm boards :D

I don't know about this years boards, but I have both 2012 Vidra and Prisma and they are going strong. Mainly ride the quad, and this season has been awesome! Didn't think the quad would handle size as I use this mainly in smallish surf. I took it out today in some solid 8 foot waves and this board came alive! Even at high speed the board never felt like it would skip out. One of the best session ever for me. Massive walls and speed and 7 meter kites! I would have taken the thruster out, but I didn't bring it with me and I was surprised by how big the swell was. Glad I left it at home!

I am pretty hard on my boards, and these things really hold up. Not happy about the pads though, they keep peeling off on one board. It's the only negative comment I have. Could not be happier with these boards.

I think that Joe Weiss meant that the TT's are getting bigger.
I think he is right.
Materials and board shapes evolved and improved and one can hold down a bigger size, edge hard and pop even when overpowered, so a bigger board is probably a better choice nowadays.
