hmmm, I would say a larger board like the Landlock or maybe and Inland Surfer Green Room would work better. You'll have a hard time dropping the rope on a small wave with a Broadcast.

I actually use an hyperlite landlock and it does not work good. i can drop thr rope for a while but its hard to hold the speed...do you think a larger board - maybe the greenroom- is better for small wakes?

I have not personally ridden a green room but have heard that it is one of the easiest boards to stay on the wave with. What kind of boat are you riding behind and how are you weighting it?

If you have a small wake you are definitely going to need a board that floats well.

I had a landlock and sold it to get a green room because I was sinking the tip on the landlock trying to keep up with the wave. The green room will be an improvement over the landlock, but it will still take a lot of effort to ride a small wake. Since I've had the green room I've made my wake a lot bigger and it is whole lot more fun and easier to ride with a bigger wake.

it is hard on any board with a small wake; the bigger the board the easier it is

I was a t the boatshow today and the new CWB inland board is supposed to pack a lot of speed. <BR>

You need a board that will tolerate nose-diving. I recommed a test run of the Trick Boardz. I comes from the skimboard perspective. If you want the best float, however, look at a Softtop. They have the best surface area to control ratio for beginner/intermediate riders. The also don't harm the boat.
