I was going to say that triple axels were for kooks, but a few 1,000 mile trips a year! If anyone could justify it, it would be you.

I am 5-9 175 and I ride a William 145. I just came off of a 140.

I'm not taking anything away from wake surfing. Its fun factor is through the roof. It just has limited potential on the high-end. I know guys that 2 years ago "hung up their wakeboard" to surf...
