RE: kombat 08
As usual, full info on the 08 products will be given on aug 15, but you need not worry the successors of the 87 and 97 will be any less good in waves. I think the Kombats have earned a firm spot as a really good wave boards in many peoples hearts and there is no intent to break those hearts.
In 2007 terms: a K97 would be a great complement to your EVOs. I had the E80 and K87 and while they are different boards, the overlap relative the 80 is a bit to big for both of them to make sense in the same quiver (unless one really want to fine tune the ride in the 80-87l segment).
