I'm totally new to wakesurfing.
I'm looking to get a wakesurfboard
I hate the "skim" style boards, and I don't like thin boards. I don't want to

I have been surfing (in the ocean) since I was 13. I'm 24 now.
I'm 6'3" 205

I have tried last years hyperlite landlock and I liked it but it was a little too long.
In the same day (my first day ever) I tried the broadcast with the skim fins (which was ridiculous) and then the large fins from the landlock and it was more like surfing, not just spinning and sliding everywhere.

The thing I didn't like about the broadcast was that it is not full in the tail or the nose, and its rails were super thin, and that it also comes with those little skim fins.

The hyperlite swell looks cool, but only has 1 center fin and is super short at 4'3".

I want a quad fin or dual fin set up that is basically made for bigger guys (wider or fuller in the tail and nose).

I'm partial to fiberglass but knowing how boats got it seems as though it would get trashed.

do the fiberglass guys use the s-cloth stuff? 6 oz or 4oz?
possibly the surftech stuff would be better for boats in general.

I'm checking out:

CWB razor
its 5ft long and an ideal shape (or so I think).

ronix's Coal or Caption

shredstixx piranha

Let me know what all you guys think of these or if you have any other suggestions....

Ideally comments from someone who has grown up surfing in the ocean, who is bigger than average and who doesnt want to do hand spins like a tourist on a skimbaord at the beach on 4th of july...

thanks guys,

I meet almost all of your criteria, so I'll chime in...

Shreddstixx is the way to go, trust me on this...

yeah after watching their video, they seem like the most legit board for what I want to do.

too bad they are 500+ dollars.....

thanks dude.

anyone else know of any other brands like this for a little cheaper?
