so i went out yesterday and rode with some friends. i tried out his LF Harley Grind 142. i was able to manuever around the water better on his board, but the board seemed very heavy to me-like cinder block heavy LOL.
so next i rode my board-cwb faze. we got to looking and i guess i never got the center fins that you bolt onto the board which is why its so squirrely feeling and i have no control.
after that i rode his wifes board(no laughing!!) its a hyperlite blur 136, and it had opentow boots so i was able to squeeze into it. this board felt really good on the water. i was able to move around super easy and i was not able to get wake to wake but i was getting a good 4 or 5 feet of air off the wake and landing just short of the other wake. i know this is all because i wasnt edging hard enough to the wake..
so now im thinking what do to. should i find some fins to put on my cwb board(its 142 also) or should i try to find a board similiar to the HL BLUR design and go with a 137 or 139 as it seemed to be a lot easier to ride.
i am 6'4", 170-180 lbs, so tall and skinny.
