So one of my other riding friends has gotten hooked on wakesurfing. We currently ride my P5 DD and love it. He wants to get his own board for when he is not surfing with me. At first he was looking for another "skim" board. But last night we were talking about how he should go ahead and try out a surf style board first. He has insane surf style talent BTW, he drops wayyy back in the pocket, accelerates forward and does huge bottom turns wayy out away from the wake.
So anyway, we are in Richmond,VA and there are no shops that carry decent surf boards. Would love to find a way to "demo" one of the higher end surf style boards. He wants to spend about $500. Any suggestions?
