      I have an 87 Skier I purchased recently on a great deal (I think).

      Long story short I dont have spark, from the coil. I cant imagine the coil is still good, however I have the J1171 distributor, it didnt come with one so I bought it from Ebay and thought it was the proper one. If it is not please inform me on how to make it work or a super cheap replacement.

      I cant upload pics for some reason but need to know where to route wires for the distributor.

      To the coil is a grey to Negative and purple+purple/yellow to the Positive. That is the factory harness. I have nothing coming off any of the 3 posts on the distributor

      Thanks!

      I ride the model x and liked it, but was thinking mvp.  What are your thoughts between the 2?

      I have the Model X and ride it with a single 1” tail fin.  Not saying they are the same, but get a single 1” tail fin for your model X and try that out. Like mentioned earlier, the MVP is a pro level board. The model X has 2” fins and the MVP has a 1” fin. The 1” fin on the model X changes the board big time and makes it a lot looser. If you like the way that rides and can handle that, then step up to the MVP. If you do get it and it is to difficult to ride, try putting your 2” fin on the MVP.

      I have ridden the MVP and really liked it.  It is a really light board. That will probably be my next board. I really like it for the full pad on it.

      Thank you very much for the information!

      Soulcraft mentioned to me their custom boards are a bit more fragile than the phase 5s. Is this common with custom built boards compared to mass production mainstream boards like Phase 5s?

       

      Also which Lake do you run on in summer cowichan?

      No problem!  
       

      Soulcraft will definitely be super fragile as they’re all hand glassed boards. Just in general the surf style boards will be much more fragile, the carbon skims are super durable. 
       

      I’m mostly on McIvor lake which is just outside Campbell River, absolutely beautiful spot. Go to other lakes throughout the summer and nothing’s compares.  Where are you located? Most people don’t know anything about the island lol. 
       

      Getting out and trying some demos would also be a great option. I’ve got a small a surf school on the island, as well there are numerous options in the Okanagan.

      Model X is a great board for beginners as well as larger dudes. Unlike most beginner boards the model x actually allows for room to advance on. The model x is more of a hybrid style just because of its size and multi fin setup. 
       

      Where the mvp is pro level skim board for skim style tricks.

      Doomswell boards are a true surf style which is a totally different ball game. Surf style fins generate the speed and want to take off, where as with a skim the fins are there for stability purposes. For the surf style board, beginner tricks will consist more of carving and airs vs with skim for board slides and spins.  
       

      Doomswell is a great intermediate surf style board for the price.  For a more high performance style I would recommend taking a look at Kanuk, blu surf or soulcraft. Kanuk being the least expensive out of the three being in Canadian dollars. 
        
      Surf style I ride the burnsy pro, which has tons of speed and is still able to be spun. Regarding fin configuration on a surf style board there are endless options of future fins to choose from. 
      The kanuk shift is also a great choice, more of s beginner surf style board, all around a good time. Definitely a step above a ronix or similar but not quite a pro level surf.
