I've had a wakeskate for along time, but really I wakeboard a lot more. I'm finally in the market for a new skate, right now I have a 2003 Cassette McGuckin. I'd like to get a board with a foam top, and something for not only me to progress on, but for new people to use as well.
I'm 5'10, 140...but I'd like a board that works for a WIDE range of people (girls at 100lbs trying for the first time, up to guys at 180).
Right now my board has grip tape, and while I know some really prefer that- I need to get a foam top... I'd like to get my friends to start wakeskating as well, but it's hard to get them to try to get up when they get cut up by the grip tape.
Any help on which direction to go with a new board would be really appreciated.
