Need Help: Selecting the Best Wakesurf board

Recommended Posts

kyanicky

I have a entry level board currently Hyperlite broadcast.

I am 5'7 about 180 lbs. My wife is 5'7 about 135.

Can almost do a 360 on the board. Improved my chances by leaving one center small fin on the board and removing the rest.

I can getup with my daughter on the board and ride with her on it without the rope.

Can ride without the rope and start and stop by exiting the swim platform and can do a bunch of slides up and back on the wake.

Want to get a more advanced board that will let me have more control and be more aggressive without burying the nose so easy.

Any thoughts or recommendations you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Kenny

I am 5'9 190lbs. I learned on an entry level board and recently bought a Liquid Force Machine 4'10. It is less than $450 and rides similiar to the Phase5 Wire that costs about $850.

I have the ronix honeycomb surf and really enjoy it. It has a skim feel but still can be ridden by anyone. easy enough to throw around!

Try the Doomswell Neo... It is not a skim board... this board is a step up from the broadcast... more responsive, and also quicker. It is not as stable as the broadcast (due to it being more responsive). It will spin easily.. It takes effort to dip the Neo nose.

I have not ridden any of the 2016 models yet...

It is my second board. A tad expensive, but will resist the dings because of the honeycomb material. It is fast, very fast. You can put 3 fins in it to make it ride more straight, or one fin to make it easier to throw around.
