Hi all,

This past winter I suffered from a C5-C6 disc herniation. Because of this, I am limited to ONLY wakesurfing this summer. So I would like to get another board.

We have been wakesurfing for a number of years now on a CWB Tsunami. I like the board and we have a ton of fun with it, but want to do more. We would like to get more into spin tricks and freestyle type riding.

Can anyone suggest a board that would be a little faster, and more freestyle then the Tsunami.

Our crew has about 7 boards we ride regularly. One of the overall favorites is the Phase 5 Drew Daniello. It is a skim board so it spins easily, it works well on all sizes of waves, it is remarkably fast compared to the other boards we ride, it doesn't have a tendency to pearl, and you can really edge it. I think that their posted weight ranges for boards are a little higher than they should be. If your average rider is over 180, I would consider the Phase 5 Diamond instead - same type performance, but works better for larger riders.

Rob, thanks for the suggestions. From the looks of the Phase5 boards, it's definately in the direction I am looking for. I guess price is ok, you will pay for a good board, something I am not afraid of.

One more question.
Do you (or your crew) find any benefits on a single fin versus a triple-fin setup? We would have all skill ranges trying this and good tracking is needed for the lessor experienced. Although they would prbably be riding the Tsunami to start.

I have the Phase 5 Carbon X Hybrid.I love it , fast and secure with the three fins.You can remove 2 and spin easily. I believe it's rated to 250lbs. I previously rode a Broadcast and it seems like a dinasour compared to the Phase 5.
