I just got my new 2012 Lake Wakes 55 wide the other day. I have to say it is the best board that I have riden. It is light feels very durable and fast in the water. You can chace the boat at high speeds and carve the wave or you can slow the boat down and do 360 and other surface tricks. If you are in the market for a new board give Lake Wakes a good look.
