Getting a board and can't decide between blue lake and red woody. I'm new to surfing, been out a couple times and was able to drop the rope and stay up for a bit. I was on a buddies hyperlite, not sure what kind though. I still have to work on my wake, not sure exactly how good it will get. I have a 2004 tige 20i and was using a 750lb sac on one side and 3 or 4 people doing 10mph. The wave had alot of height but was really short. (not sure if that would make a difference on which board to get). I weigh 200lbs.

IS Swallow. I have a Red board but never rode a blue board but the Swallow is an upgrade to the blue board. I weight 250 and can surf on a medium wake.

I'd go with the Blue Lake, it's great for everyone, then if you decide you want to step it up in the future, you can buy a board specific to you and still have the Blue Lake for everyone. I ride the Blue, I'm 215lbs and can surf just fine.

Thanks for the info. Any suggestions on what I can do for the wake?

Short steep wake => generally means that you either have too much weight in the back or your going too slow.

Or add weight up front.
