Me: 33 years old
6'5", 245lbs, size 13 feet
Just started, but ride several times per week
Current board: CWB Sol 141 with Mobe bindings.
X7, but no ballast used. On my lake, its not allowed and we use the boat to ski alot...so its not a huge wake.
1. Continue to learn with the smaller board until next year.
2. Order a Hyperlite EVA 147 from Grizzly along with 04 Temets at a huge discount and stick with that.
3. Same at option 2 but with the State 145 board.
Advice guys? I dont mind sticking with my current board, but on the other hand I dont mind spending a few hundred bucks to get the bigger/better board that actually fits me along with new bindings...I get out enough to justify it.
I know there is no substitute for technique, but at my size and weight coupled with the smaller wake of the X7 (about 3' but with great shape), I seem to cut through the wake rather than pop off it.
Help guys, I would like to make a decision soon before the summer slips away
