what do you guys think? i can deffently ride, im doing 360s on a 5 8 shortboard ropeless, but i figure if i really want to start being able to do more i need to get a wakesurfing board... i like the overall shape of the broadcast, but its 100+ dollars more than the skimskate... what do you guys think

what about phase5 boards? how does it compaire with the broadcast

Phase 5's are decent but feel real "slippery" <BR>They have a teardrop design that makes it a bit harder to lock into the wake and glide. <BR> <BR>Go with the Broadcast if it's between the two. <BR> <BR>Go with the Skimskate 5' if you want to get better

what do you mean go with the skimskate 5 if i want to get better? whats better about it?(becides its 100 dollars cheaper)

The Broadcast is longer, has deeper fins and sharper edges. <BR>This means that the board will be less manuverable, harder and harder to spin. <BR>It is an easier board to learn on though. <BR> <BR>The Skimskate is blunt tiped and has shallower fins. It is easier to get more agressive with it and a TON easier to spin on. (even if you shave the fins on the Broadcast) <BR> <BR>That is what I mean by "if you want to get better" <BR>Good luck!
