Have read that they may throw spray in your face. How are they in small on shore waves, turny? Good pop? Etc. Thank you.

The 2010 is very similar to the 2009. Very minimal spray in the face, decent amount of rocker, great pop. This is a really good all around board! Especially for the ocean.

I have the 2011 Crazy Fly Raptor 137x41. There should be a lot of similarities ... so I will try to give you some helpful feedback.

Construction: Very Impressive! On the same level as my previous Underground FLX.

"POP": The center of the board is stiff, but the tips are extremely thin and very flexi. I found that it does not have as much "pop" off the water with the tips being so thin/flexi. It does "pop" ... just not as well as other wakestyle boards that I have ridden.

Spray: No issue here

Waves: For a twintip .... it works just fine, but I haven't found a twin tip that's wave friendly (exception: Mako). The 2011 raptor isn't skatey, if that's what you're asking, but I have no issue carving, turning with the board. It handles the chop very well.

Hope this helps...
