Well, we got the 2012 Tige RZ2 last week and spent some time dialing in the wake with the custom fly high 1100 sacs, it was awesome. I got my wife (44), wife's friend (54) and daughter (15), son (10), daughter (8) surfing last week and they loved it. I got most of them wireless.
My problem is I can't ride anywhere near like I had expected. I am an intermediate wakeboarder and I grew up surfing. I didn't just dabble either, I was actually sponsored by a local surf shop during my high school years. Anyway, I can't stay wireless worth a crap and I know it's not the boat or the wake; either I am doing something wrong or it's the board.
The dealer set me up with 2 boards: 1) Liquid Force Custom Skim Style 4'2" for the family and 2) Liquid Force Custom Thruster 4'10" for me. I figured I would do well on the surf style thruster with my surfing background but the board is extremely slow and I keep falling out of the wake. I can ride the small board much better as far as staying in the pocket but I can't do any tricks because I'm too big for the board and it keeps nose diving (I'm 6' 200lbs).
I guess I need to go with a custom board. Any suggestions would be great, but I have no way to demo any boards on my lake. I don't mind spending whatever I need to get the right board. Anyway, thanks in advance and if anyone wants to buy a brand new Liquid Force Custom Thruster let me know I will let it go for a good price. The post on the TWP Bomp Pop looks nice.
Here is a pic of our friends daughter the first time she got up on the board and the wave looks massive. Her expression cracks me up. The wave is definitely not my problem.
