Need help with phase 5 board choice and size
 
Hello I am 5'11'' and 190 lbs I currently own a phase 5 prop (54'') and I think It's a little bit slow for my weight. BUT I bought it used and it have a 2'' fin at the back and a 1'' fin at the front...I will put it back to stock with only 1'' fin at the back to see if it help...

My question should I go for a carbon pro 54''?? will I see improvement because it's about the same size as my prop but carbon ...or should I go with a 58''? at 58'' I'M litlle bit worried it will be harder for tricks but it will probably be faster...

Or I should save money keep my prop and buy a surf style witch I would like to try also...

Thanks for your help

I have a Phase 5 Carbon Pro and have had a 6'6" 256 lb guy surf on it his first time out . Also his buddy 6' and 220 lbs surfed his first time out on it. What boat do you have now and how are you weighting it?

Which size your carbon pro?

My boat is a old hydrodyne nexstar 22.5 with 1100 lbs at the corner 700 rear seat and 400 up front with some help from trim tab. Wake is good but not monstruous I can ride the prop pretty easily just want something alittle bit faster and wondering if a carbon pro same size will give an improvement

Hi, I just purchased a 1997 Hydrodyne Nexstar. I'd be very interested in hearing how you load your boat for the best wake surf & wakeboard wake. Do you have any pictures of the boat or the wake? It's such an obscure boat it's hard to find any information on it. In general, how are you liking the boat?

First, you do not need a 58", not for your weight and height. The smaller fin, will not really make the board faster (yes slightly less drag, but not noticeable), it will make the board looser, which translates to a more lively feel in most situations. This of course is very open to interpretation.

Get a surf style board, then you can truly decide if a high end skim is more you or surf style.
