I am looking to purchase a new wakesurf board and would like some advice. I currently just have a O'Brien Alias 5'0". The only other boards I have ridden are the Hyperlite Broadcast 5'6" and the CWB Ride. I am just advancing in ability and would like a board that is good all-around; can cut, slash, get some good air, but also can spin fairly easily and do other surface tricks. My boat is a '07 Wakesetter VLX that I have about 3000 pounds of additional ballast, so I can get a very nice, long, clean wake. No one has ANY problems going ropeless on this wake! I am 5'11" 195 pounds. Right now, the top of my list are the Phase 5 Prop and the Inland Surfer Green Loogey. Are these good all around boards that can do just about everything? I'm sure someone with a lot of ability can get these to do anything; keep in mind that I am not a pro and want a board that I can use to LEARN to do these things. Should I just plan on using my Alias for more cuts & air and get a skim type board for surface tricks?

My budget for this new board is $500 max but would be more comfortable around $400.
