ok so i bought a LF skimskate 4'6" 2 weeks ago, the board is a lot of fun and i love the way is feels but i still can't get the hang of it without the rope, last weekend i got the closest as ever before, i rode for like 150 feet and then fell out of the wave. my boat is a 2005 moomba outback with 350# sac in the rear and 350# sac on the side and like 3 people on that side, the wave looks awesome but i still can't stay in the sweet spot. we are going at like 9.5-10mph. do i need more weight? i'm 5'9" and 130lbs so i don't think i'm to big for the board <BR>

Sean demoed the same board today same as you I love the feel it is very controled no nose diving etc... I also had the same prolem as you but i was riding behind an 04 tige 22v No weight. My dads boat has a v drive sac 400 lbs, I can throw the rope in and surf for hours behind his boat with me broadcast. This weekened I am going to try the skimskate behind my dads boat. I will let you no the outcome keep me posted on how your doing on it. <BR> <BR>Thanks <BR>Zack
