Anyone have any strong thoughts re: these boards. Thinking about the Butter Board Churn or the CWB Ride or Tsunami. If there was a local shop that sold the Phase 5 Oogle I also thought that looked like it may work, but I want immediate gratification and it does not look like that is going to happen. <BR> <BR>Any other ideas for a bigger board that you are sold on. Note, many of the people I ride with are bigger than me(6’1”+ 200 lbs.)…. Not really looking for anything other than getting into the pocket and riding without the rope….. <BR>

E.J., I think there is a shop in Orem or Provo that has Phase 5's. I think it's called Union Board Shop. <BR> <BR>I'll bring my Landlock and LF Skimskate for you to try out next time. Jim's Inland Surfer may be good for you too, but I personally hate it. I prefer the skimboard style boards much better than the surfboard style boards. The exact opposite of Ryan, haha. I get back in town Sun afternoon if you want to try and hit it up next week. <BR> <BR>Does Marine Products have anything you can demo?

Jay...is Union Board Shop still in business? I have been trying to call them and get no answer or machine? That would be GREAT if they actually had a Oogle in stock. <BR> <BR>I wonder if my size would kill me with the skimboard style. <BR> <BR>I have not been in to Marine Products to see if they have a demo, maybe I should swing by. <BR> <BR>I rode a IS Green Room and liked it, but I don't know if I want to spend $450 on a wake surfer.

Okay....looks like it is the LF Inlander. Talked to Coop at Marine Products and that is the board he thought would fit my needs best. No demos.... <BR> <BR>It gets the initial test this coming weekend. <BR> <BR>Union Board Shop is picking up Phase 5 next year. As a side note, those guys are great. I left a message and they called me back within like 5 minutes and were VERY customer friendly. They have their crap in a pile....and I give them a big thumbs up.

I have the CWB Ride, and it seems like a good board, although I am not super happy with it. Seems to bury the nose pretty easily. I rode a Shoreline Lakeboard (Jessica Oswald's) the other day, and it seemed to be MUCH nicer. Of course, she could make any board smoke! I am a rook at wakesurfing, but noticed a big difference in floatation and handling. Just rode better all the way around. Those are the only ones I have ridden, so I can not speak for the others you mentioned. Good idea to try a few before you buy. <BR> <BR>Good luck!

I have the broadcast, and been pretty happy with it, but I weigh in at a burley 165lbs, soaking wet and wearing boots <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>...The board handles really well, but like Buzz, I'm still waitin' on those sponsors to call me too.... <BR> <BR>Been on the Broadcast when I first learned, and it seemed much faster and bouyant, but with a little less handling.

ShredStixx boards work really well. I have the fish stix model 5'10" 22" wide. Works great for the bigger guys. I also ride the 5'6" Inland surfer. Works good but not as much floatation as the ShredStixx. I am 6' 190#'s. The ShredStixx are thick and wide. Super easy to ride. Removable fin system to make your ride a little looser. <BR>Board More/Work Less! <BR>J$

E.J... So how do you like the LF Inlander? <BR> <BR>I was looking at that board at MP and was wondering about it, or if I should wait and go with a Phase 5 Ooogle. I like the idea about putting the Phase 5 in my current board rack. <BR> <BR>Thanks

I am VERY happy with the Inlander. For me, it is a better fit than the Green Room(a board I wanted, just didn't want to pay for). I think that Mike liked mine enough that he went an pick himself one up. <BR> <BR>I still have not been on a Oogle, so who knows what I would think of that.
