    Longboard

    9'2\" Robert August \"WIR\" vs. Walden's Magic. Anyone ever ridden these boards? What is your opinion of their performance?

    Ridden both... very different boards. The WIR is more of a classic, glidey longboard, and the Magic is a totally modernized, performance design.

    Totally agree- if your looking for more performance -waldens magic. Although the WIR is a sweet board- with some performance still there..

    +1 Ricky Carroll longboard over the popouts. I've ridden both the WIR and the Walden and agree with the cruiser/glidey feel of the WIR vs. the high performance feel of the Magic. RC will make you something better than either one.

    Nothing like riding a hand-made piece of beauty

    Another +1 on Ricky Carroll. I just picked up a 9'2" RC JQ Noserider ("Jawbreaker Acid Wash" tint) about a month ago. I was actually planning on ordering a Levitator to couple with my Elevator, but the JQ seemed like the better option; better on the wallet too. It's the best noserider I have ever riden. Well done, RC. I owe you a beer for that one.

    I've never riden the WIR, but I am a fan of the Magic Model. One of my first longboards was a 9'0" Magic Model. I rode it for a few years, until I buckled it on October 16th, 2011. It has since been replaced with a very similiar Magic Model. The Magic is definitely a great all-around board that will elevate your longboarding game. Its very receptive to different fin set ups, great hold down the line and it is very easy to generate speed. The bigger the wave, the better the ride for sure.
