Opinions please, since it doesn't seem like I can demo them around here. Medium to large size wave, 190 lbs. Thanks in advance.

go to wakesurfer.com. I like it better than both of those boards. I haven't ridden the phase 5, but I heard it was real hard to ride. I have ridden the inland...like a real surf board better. Let me know if you are interested in a shoreline. <BR>

Where is "around here?"

lionel 02-20-2006 4:29 PM

Bigshow, Portland, Oregon. Jeremy, what am I checking out at <a href="http://www.wakesurfer.com?" target="_blank">www.wakesurfer.com?</a> I guess I should go to the site first......

i personaly like the phase 5 , its a little tricky to ride but its relly manuverble , the wakesurfer.com boards look like a surfboard 2 me

Is there anyone here from the Portland area that has a board that you could invite to ride with you, so you can steal a ride on their board?

bigshow 02-20-2006 6:19 PM

How far is Bellevue Washington from Portland, pretty far I guess. Maybe you could hook up a ride with Jeff Page at Inland Surfer.

Absolutely! <BR> <BR>I'd bet anything that Jeff Page would set up a demo ride. <BR> <BR>Jeff loves his customers, past, present and future. <BR> <BR>In fact, I bet that both Inland Surfer and Trickboardz would sell you a board with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

An even better solution would be to find someone with the skills to make a board customized to your weight and riding preferences. <BR> <BR>I'm not saying you can't find a VERY capable board right off the selves but it's NOTHING like having a board made for YOU.

CA! You aren't talking about a surf style board are you? Your buddies would shoot you! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> I have never heard of anyone customizing a skim style board. Are you holding out on us? <BR> <BR>Not to bad mouth Phase 5, they put a quality board, if not overly innovative for wakesurfing. There are a TON and I mean a TON of skimboards on the market. The uber-talented skim boarders ride behind the boat without the fin. If you remove that single attachment, there must be 80 different manufacturers out there and hundreds of different designs. I've seen what appears to be designs that would be better suited for wakesurfing than the tried and true Phase 5/Zap/Vic outline. Does anyone have any input on a non-traditional skimmer being used behind the boat?

moh2o 02-21-2006 3:31 PM

yep, I'm holding out <b>big time</b> <BR> <BR>All Phase 5 did was stick a wakeboard fin on their Comp and Egg models (not really considered highend in the skimboard world) The secret I'm guarding takes that several steps further and is designed purely with wakesurfing in mind. <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by Moh2o on February 21, 2006)
