Hi : Welcome!
You should check out the Kampus' decks! Concave and non concave boards offer different rides ...up to taste. The best would really to test several brands and shape before buying any deck in order to see what suit you best. only my 2 cents

Hey Dave,

Do you think that manufacturers will produce heavier boards in the future? It seems that they already are moving toward that direction...

I assume they will create what the consumers want. When Erich Schmaltz was fine tuning the Integrity skate, he asked everyone on here for their input on the perfect weight for his deck. Most people suggested a weight similar to one of the current popular boards. That tells me that either the manufacturers are right on or either that is all we know as of now so that is what we like.

i would suggest an integrity. it is great for all levels of riding and will last a lot longer than a wood board.
check them out at www.integrity-wake.com

also check out www.boardstop.com and www.buywake.com

i too would suggest looking at the integrity, reason being is after 1 season my wood kampus is waterlogged like whoa and i spent a good amount of money on it, now i am gonna have to buy another in a season or 2 and i wish i had the option to get a board that lasted longer, even if it cost more.

your totally right liquid, Kampus skates are sick FOR THE PRICE. you can't compare a Kampus to an Integrity... they are just too different. If you want a simple inexpensive skate with great value Kampus is the best. however, if you want the Cadillac of all wakeskates and are willing to pay for it, get yourself an Integrity. I didnt intend to bash Kampus, TTUFAN24
