i'm the exact same size as you cept i am 6'2" and i bought a Cassette concave Horrell 41 and it suits me perfect..i am certainly loving it! i personally wouldn't go any bigger!

41 or 43. The larger one should work a little better if you want to do a lot of W2W stuff. If you're the shuv/flip trick kind of guy, go for the smaller size.

6'1" and 150 lbs???? You dont need to buy a wakeskate, you need to use that $ to buy a few meals. <BR>Sorry, just wish I still had high metabolism.

Catalyst 116, doesnt matter that your light your a big dude. Go with a big board...

vance 03-28-2004 2:03 PM

dont buy a catalyst.. they suck IMO.

Catalyst is the way to go… It's light and super concaved unlike everything else. Hook up with a local shop and demo a few and pick what fits you.

Light isn't always the way to go...weight is good so it won't fly out from under you. And the foam sucks up the concave... <BR> <BR>One of the major complaints I hear about hype decks is that they're too light (amongst other things).

lunaraven 03-29-2004 3:03 PM

What other things? <BR>It seems to be popular to bash hyperlite all over these forums because they are the Starbucks of board makers, success makes enemies. <BR>Generally you get what you pay for, if a board is cheap its likely a POS. <BR> <BR>

Rick I don't think she is bashing Hyperlite. Most people admit that they make great products but not everyone is going to like them. I didn't like the Catalyst (I think that's what it was) because I couldn't ride it well. It felt too light, I couldn't get it to pop as well as my Kampus and it didn't stay with my feet as well either. But you can't deny that it is a great board. The Hyperlite Pro's obviously seem to do well on it! <BR> <BR>(Message edited by blabel on March 29, 2004)
