electricsnow, I totally meant to say,
if they were done we probably would see an announcement about Coco getting picked up by someone. Confused
haha, kind of left out the most important part of that sentence.
anyway, that is what I was thinking, I think if Virtue is done, or even just done for a bit I would think Coco would be picked up by someone instantly. Like on gram it looks like Aphid is done, and that is easily confirmed by Ollie being back on Southern

Stu is also riding a home wakeskate.

Coco is rad...he's got an insane style in general, let alone for being one of the younger riders out there.

senza wake, hearing nothing is my indicator, and only why i question. Smile it seemed like a lot of boards were made by them (i think wander co. was one) and now they're being made by blank. Also, their instagram page has been inactive for quite some time.

I don't think they'd necessarily announce anything--there are so many brands that died and went out quietly, it's unreal. Maybe that leaves the option for a return, but there's no closure for the present time.


I dont think Virtue is done.

Jeff just got married and had a baby so Im thinking he is busy with that.

Anyone know the differences between the new southern and WM skates? Rocker line is the same but how about concave and thickness?

I dont know, but am very interested. How did you find the rocker was the same?

New WM's are a ply thicker and the tip and tails are a little narrower than the Southerns and Remotes.

It took me a little while to get used to the new shape coming from older water monsters mainly because of the weight reduction but after getting used to it for a few sets, I couldn't be happier with the shape. 2016 just got a lot better for wakeskating!

Anyone that picks one of these WM up could you post a pic of your shoe on the tail? I have a size 12 foot and am curious how it'd fit

Is WM rocker line faster than it used to be? Always been massive fan of the Remote rocker, but 8.5 lbs is too light for my liking. 10lbs would be spot on.

I bought a 40.5 for my collection. Here are a couple of pics to compare to the austin dino board. The shoe size is a 6.5. The weight between my dino and new board isn't a lot--maybe a pound, but it is an inch or so longer.

Vance Collins, that's actually a supreme shape. The tail is still a bit narrow, and maybe light for some tastes, but that shape was on point.

there is a unbearable amount of drag. Rails, boxes etc that i was hitting. I've been shot forward several times were it was uncomfortable. I even gave it to one of my parks local pro and he had same issue. maybe some wax?

splinter, I usually rub wax on my skate before a cable set and spray the rails.
