Hey guys,

I'm a first time wakesurfer, not first time surfer however. We just picked up an '07 Seadoo Speedster 155hp. It's 15' long and weights in at about 1,475pounds.

I've done the search and read one thread about SeaDoo boats and Wakesurfing but I don't want to go blow $300 on a board if I won't stay afloat with out some serious pumping!

I've attached a picture of my friend trying it behind my boat with my 4'10 skimboard...it's a really skinny board.

Will wakesurfing work behind my boat? If so, what boards would you recommend. I weight in at 155 pounds. How about the Hyperlite Broadcast 5'6"? or the even bigger Landlock?

Please help! http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b366/Rastaman3030/5-1-2007-04.jpghttp://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b366/Rastaman3030/5-1-2007-03.jpg

Forget about the Hyperlite. It may be the right size but they are SLOW. With a small and probably mushy wave you need a good size board that is still FAST. Look at the Inland Surfer Blue Lake or Red Woody. Bigger size and much faster than the Hyperlite. I have owned the HL 5'11" and have surfed the 5'6" one. I also still own the IS Blue and Red. There is no comparison between the HL and IS boards. I know you will pay a bit more money for the IS boards but you will not regret it.

i would get an uber fast, super large board, that way everyone can enjoy, plus the wave is going to be limited, so enjoy it as much as possible, the larger board will help you not hurt. there is a guy at our lake who always borrows a board on the weekends for his yamaha. he has a broadcast and always asks to borrow a board for his friends. good luck
