Volvo Penta forward drive. Pretty much all your non-traditional inboard boat manufactures entering the surf and sport boat market are using it now. You also have your Yamaha, etc., jet boats vying...

I would agree with your local dealer when comparing those two boards. Sounds like you should give the Keg a run and see how it goes. I only commented regarding the broadcast as it was mentioned by...

At your size you might struggle with the Keg or the big broadcast. The 2016 broadcast is new shape, and this fishier shape is geared towards more surface area and more buoyancy. However, the best...

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

If you are thinking you like the shape of the Neo, then you might consider the Chaos Pocket Rocket or Contender. Similar shapes, ride attributes, and price. I...

Yes, the RR is a good big guy board, but a basic carver and learner. It is way to heavy and cumbersome to accomplish what you want.
You need a custom board. You need a board with drive, that you can...

Thanks for the kind words Mike.

Brad, how big? For me, I think of big as 225+; 300+ is another ball game. All shapes and designs are scalable. Can there be some change (loss or amplifications) in...

It is like Mitch points out, but more than that. A custom surfboard from Rusty built the same as one of these surfskates will cost you just as much in general. Your basic white/clear PU board with...

Joel,

I used a 2007 240 and 230 quite a lot. Yes, the standard goofy wave is the pits. However it is fixable with mods. The 230 was one of the workhorses of wakesurfing back then, and the 240 was...

You don't need a stringer depending on thickness and glassing schedule. However, since you are likely working with flat 2" pieces, using a stringer allows you to bend a proper rocker into your glued...

Check out some other strings, but in a nutshell you are standing too tall and putting too much pressure on your front foot.
Start further back in the wake, crouch down more and put more pressure on...

That is true and not true. Yes, real surf fins or good wakesurf fins are vastly superior to the silly plastic fins that ronix provides with the board. Nevertheless, the fins still drive or have lift...

No worries, Tre. So in the video you can see how the board remains on plane, that is the nose isn't lifted up or turned up in to the wake. This is a surface 360, and with a board of this volume and...

Yeah, there is a enough to re-glass the nose. However, you might consider how much you are chopping off. The will change the overall rocker and may prove to cause more problems than it fixed.
