I have both right now, but I haven't had the opportunity to ride the Kampus yet. I'll have a full review of the Kampus deck on Wakeskating.com as soon as I get a chance to ride it.

Below is a link to the 4-Track review:

Dave-
Do you think you could also put up a trick tips of how to do one-footed butterslides if you have time? i want to try them this summer.

also i like the profile picture of yours. how much did you slide on yours? has it held up pretty well? i have that same one and i want to use it when the cable park opens up so i don't have to get my new one scratched up

i dont know about a one footed butter slide but i know i can do a one footer for like 3 or 4 sec. there not really that hard. I learned it on an indo board. they really help out alot especillay when u get that craving to wakeboard during the offseason.

David,
I slid that skate for a while before it broke. We use synthetic wood for our sliding surface on our sliders, so if you are sliding on PVC, then it may actually hold up even longer.

Adding more trick tips is definitely a goal of mine this summer. I wish I could do it now, but I don't have any video footage or pictures. The best I can do is attach the picture below. But there will be more trick tips once the temperature gets above freezing!

Yeah I'm also looking at a new skate. Can't decide if I want the 4 Trac or not. I can get one here in OZ for about $150 US. It's used and I haven't seen it yet, but supposed to be in really good shape. I've never been on sliders but would love to try. I can ride the cable in Bli Bli here and when I'm home I'll be on the same park as Legler in KC. Does this deck ride well otherwise or is it just for sliding? I'm working on shuvits and wake to wake right now. Also another question, do the extra holes in the deck cause it to waterlog? Im sure they're sealed and all but if you reconfigure your fins a lot woudn't the sealant scrape away and expose the wood? You guys that ride them please reply - do they hold up or should I look into a 3D Pro?

ive been looking at the four track every time i go to performance and the paint on there is something new. there is no way water is dona get through it. and it feels so perfect for slide. its also a great all around board.
