Hey Derek, how have you been? Have you looked at Victoria's "wakeskim" (I think is what it's called). The prop is 4'6" and the Oogle is 4'10" I believe that the large version of the wakeskim is 4'8". <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.vicskim.com/Product/Boards/Wakeskim/Wakeskim.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vicskim.com/Product/Boards/Wakeskim/Wakeskim.htm</a> <BR> <BR>You could also check out the Polyvac, it is manufactured in several different sizes, but you'd have to add a fin. <BR> <BR>Alternatively, the folks from Walzer will be offering boards that might be better suited. They will have different lengths AND thicknesses. It might me possible to stay in the 4'6" length with a slightly thicker board. Give CASkimmer aka Sean Ward a shout and see when those Walzer's will be available.

James is killing it, still. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> We were out Saturday and Monday. We are so spoiled, we've been riding since late March and have become accustomed to no one on the water. This weekend is the usual start of boating season so the water was crowded. It's good to see you posting again, Derek. You'll have to keep everyone abreast of what board you buy.
