I have a Hyperlite Broadcast 4'8" from last year, and I like it. However, we are always teaching new people to surf, and I was thinking of getting a bigger board. I want to get a board that is big enough to make it easy to learn on, but still good enough for tricks etc. I was thinking the Hyperlite Broadcast 5'6", Liquid Force Inlander, or the Phase 5 Oogle. I like that the Inlander has the fin on the tip for riding switch, but I'm still really undecided. Thoughts?

In my experience, using a bigger and more voluminous board like a Shred Stixx is the best for getting folks started. Then once they've mastered the basics you switch boards...like to the broadcast. Just like they teach surfing...you start on a 12 foot softtop, then as you master paddling and getting up you can switch to a 6'0" shortboard. IMHO, use a Shred Stixx for teaching folks for the first time and then your broadcast for tricks.

Go for the oogle, its great for teaching people and great for those days when the wake is not a monster, tricks carving it does it all.
