I rode the motive 134 before i got my new LF Substance and absolutely love the board. It has the same feel as the motive just A LOT more pop.

If you can unload your board and get some $$$ for it, hit up eBay for a Substance. You can get an '05 138 for between 250 and 300. You can probably get smaller/larger sizes cheaper.

Should my motive be cutting in the wake fast or on the slow side?

motive is rather fast...... not as fast as the TFD but it is continuous rocker.

still in line with a TFD or 3DS..... its a faster board then the motive. Has four fins instead of two center fins. Its abrupt continuous rocker meaning it keeps its speed and fluid consistent pop but explodes of the wake better then a normal continuous rocker. It has the SOFTEST landings of ANY board out there. If you buy it you need to replace the stock fins with smaller .8 fins to use the board at its potential.

Does anybody know where I could get e tfd for relatively cheap?

ebay for a cheap TFD... but I was thinking..... you like the Motive but want something thats a step up.... have you considered sticking with the same theme and giving a Belmont, Temet, or Murray a try? That is the order that Shawn Murray came out with his newer boards. TFD will take you more up on your pop, will be faster, will be looser, and will land softer. Belmont will track tighter, ride faily fast, basically feel like a bit more performance then your Motive. Make sure its a 2002 or newer Belmont though because anything less and its your Motive shape just with the Belmont name.

Out of the two boards above though...... The TFD is more advanced.
