at 5'8" 135lbs the Factor PCX will be way too fast and big. She would love the Victoria Impulse because she is the exact same size as Taylor Dorey who designed it.

The wide tail of the Diamond makes it very loose. At only 115 lbs, she would do better on a pin tail.

I hope you guys know that most of these statues were put up starting in the 1920s when the resurgence in the KKK was taking place.

Confederate history belongs in museums and history classes....

I love clerks. But if you agree with what they are saying in Clerks, then you support refugees being able to flee countries in chaos. And based off of past posts, it doesn't seem like you support...

I recommend getting a surf style or a skim style. A hybrid is too much of a compromise to me. They usually are nothing like a skimboard, and have too flat of rocker for what I want in a surf style.

Wakesurfing is like golf

And not just because it is for affluent white guys.

This is on the regular Factor from 2016. It isn't carbon fiber so it doesn't have the same snappy feel, but the core is still super stiff compared to other brands so it has a ton of pop. You should...

The Factor PCX is great for airs. It generates a ton of speed and is really snappy off the wake.
And I agree with you about there is more to do in the air. I like the variety of maneuvers I can do...

Phase 5 is hand built in Florida. They build top of the line skimboards. Phase 5, Victoria, and Exile build the best true skim style boards available.

It's very different than the Factor. The captain is much wider which makes it more stable/less responsive rail to rail than the Factor. It is designed for larger riders and smaller waves. The Factor...

Honestly, that board is too big for you. You have to have so much weight on the back to slow it down that you won't be able to have a very natural stance. You would be better off with a smaller board...

Both would be pretty awkward to wakeskate with.

But if you were wakesurfing, the broadcast would be much easier to learn on and be comfortable on than the shim.

I'm probably over reacting, but the Warriors are not looking solid. I'm losing confidence in how they will play in the playoffs. This Spurs game coming up will be huge.
