Board Upgrade--Remote?
I have been looking to get a new wakeskate. I'm 6'0 and 175 ibs,
I am looking for a board that will be used 80% of the time behind a seadoo, so one that gives good pop.
I have been researching and I heard great things about Remote Boards but I haven't had the change to try one out.
What would you guys would suggest for a new board - possibly the Remote Lecomte or the Labadens?
And also is there a big difference between the 2012/2013 models?

Thanks in advance.

Definitely check out the Remotes. They are so good.
I ride behind a seadoo, boat, and cable a lot and love it in every situation.

There is no difference between the 2012s and 2013s. They dont really have model years, they just do different graphic changes a couple times a year similar to skateboards. The shape is really good and the boards last longer than any other wood deck so I wouldnt change a good thing.
The ONE change is that the most current Horan is one ply thinner (same as the Taylor).

Okay, thanks
Which Remote board would you recommend? What are the main differences between them?

They are all the same shape but different sizes. The 38.5 and 41 are one ply thinner making them feel a little different.
at 6' I think you would like the 40.5
I'm 5'8" and ride the 38.5". I like the thicker boards too, but I like shorter skates.
