You're right - my bad. I confused this with the other thread. Wake boarding it is/was.

I don't think you can find a better wakeboard boat at 40K than a SAN210 or any of the MC 205v variants. ...

Does a trampoline workout do more than just build flip and spin skills? Does it actually tire you out or build core strength - anything like that? How do you do a trampoline workout?

Those are both outstanding boats that would normally get my vote, but the OP indicated surfing is their primary need. Those are both top notch wake boarding boats and fun for surfing, but not great...

First and most important - cut, edited, and presented way way better than most amateur wakeboard (or other) videos I've seen so any criticism you see here and likely from others should be interpreted...

Remember that part of the 50K upgrade cost you mention is really a premium you're paying to go from a used boat to brand new. You could cut that in half if you were willing to get an X-25 with...

How old are you? I find as I get older my problem shifts more and more to lower back fatigue and pulling abdominal muscles, especially in crashes. It's not that my legs are getting stronger or more...

If they don't find any specific disc or vertebrae issue, an ortho is more likely to prescribe physical therapy than pain killers and muscle relaxants. If they jump straight to oxycontin, you should...

One advantage to the X25 over the X23 or X46 is you could find a used one to minimize the cost difference between the Axis you're selling and the MC you're buying. I've seen relatively low hour X25s...

I'd want to see an orthopedic surgeon to first rule out things like a herniated disc before I would try a chiropractor, especially given the nature of the original injury. I'd hate to have a...

By "surprisingly" I meant more that the X15 doesn't get mentioned much so many people forget about it and it performs better than you would think given its "silent" reputation. I think its one of...

Assuming the new MB and used MC are in the same ballpark of cost, the MC will end up being less costly over time. New boats drop in value quite dramatically over the first couple years where...

What's the difference between them and previous generations? Is it more than just different combinations of pitch and diameter?

I'd agree with you on a budget, but the OP indicated money was not an issue. I find getting in / out of drysuits easier than wetsuits. Wetsuits are definitely more trouble free, require less care,...

I keep seeing images of that swinging back with nobody on it and catching a 3 year old square in the teeth... I love that thing for adults or older kids, but be careful if youngsters come by.

My recommendation is get a heater top and a drysuit. The heater top will take you well into November. From there you can wear the drysuit - at first with minimal insulation underneath. Later you...
