How to snap a board and some skim action

Postby Yann » Tue Aug 31, 2010 12:41 pm

In case you're sick of your board... :)


I recently had the chance to try a ZAP Large Pro so I'm posting that one as well.

I love the smile on your face while you are ripping the Zap!! That's how skimming makes me feel too.
Cool color scheme!
Bummer about your sexy "uber fish" :-(

Thanx!

I normally ride a custom Roush Morpheus Carbon. I like it a lot except that it is a little to stiff sometimes. With the Zap I felt comfortable almost right away and pulled off the same maneuvers as I normally do after just a couple of minutes. It's quite much cheaper than my Roush but I can't really say that I found anything negative about the board. It's probably not as durable as my carbon skim but a little flexier and nicer to the feet. I have two friends that ride the Zap Pro Large and they both love it.

Nice Videos, what software did you use to get the rotation in the second one?

Hey Yann,
I finally got to ride my Placebo 5'5" Rocket. WOW! Love this board! It was blowing 5m for me, so guys were on 7s. Got some of the biggest ollie airs ever, and it surfs like a dream. After one day, it already has heel dents up front. Hoping it's going to last awhile, since it is my absolute favorite board ever.

Great ridng style. Any chance you can post the videos up at normal speed, the videos look good but im not a fan of slowed down or speed up footage.

Sorry TMW but that is the normal speed except from the (repeated clip) were I'm breaking my board. Did it look speed up or slowed down to you?
