Anyone have any strong thoughts re: these boards. Thinking about the Butter Board Churn or the CWB Ride or Tsunami. If there was a local shop that sold the Phase 5 Oogle I also thought that looked like it may work, but I want immediate gratification and it does not look like that is going to happen.

Any other ideas for a bigger board that you are sold on. Note, many of the people I ride with are bigger than me(6’1”+ 200 lbs.)…. Not really looking for anything other than getting into the pocket and riding without the rope…..

E.J., I think there is a shop in Orem or Provo that has Phase 5's. I think it's called Union Board Shop.

I'll bring my Landlock and LF Skimskate for you to try out next time. Jim's Inland Surfer may be good for you too, but I personally hate it. I prefer the skimboard style boards much better than the surfboard style boards. The exact opposite of Ryan, haha. I get back in town Sun afternoon if you want to try and hit it up next week.

Does Marine Products have anything you can demo?

I wonder if my size would kill me with the skimboard style.

I have not been in to Marine Products to see if they have a demo, maybe I should swing by.

I rode a IS Green Room and liked it, but I don't know if I want to spend $450 on a wake surfer.

Okay....looks like it is the LF Inlander. Talked to Coop at Marine Products and that is the board he thought would fit my needs best. No demos....

It gets the initial test this coming weekend.

Union Board Shop is picking up Phase 5 next year. As a side note, those guys are great. I left a message and they called me back within like 5 minutes and were VERY customer friendly. They have their crap in a pile....and I give them a big thumbs up.

I have the CWB Ride, and it seems like a good board, although I am not super happy with it. Seems to bury the nose pretty easily. I rode a Shoreline Lakeboard (Jessica Oswald's) the other day, and it seemed to be MUCH nicer. Of course, she could make any board smoke! I am a rook at wakesurfing, but noticed a big difference in floatation and handling. Just rode better all the way around. Those are the only ones I have ridden, so I can not speak for the others you mentioned. Good idea to try a few before you buy.

Good luck!

I have the broadcast, and been pretty happy with it, but I weigh in at a burley 165lbs, soaking wet and wearing boots ...The board handles really well, but like Buzz, I'm still waitin' on those sponsors to call me too....

Been on the Broadcast when I first learned, and it seemed much faster and bouyant, but with a little less handling.

ShredStixx boards work really well. I have the fish stix model 5'10" 22" wide. Works great for the bigger guys. I also ride the 5'6" Inland surfer. Works good but not as much floatation as the ShredStixx. I am 6' 190#'s. The ShredStixx are thick and wide. Super easy to ride. Removable fin system to make your ride a little looser.
Board More/Work Less!

E.J... So how do you like the LF Inlander?

I was looking at that board at MP and was wondering about it, or if I should wait and go with a Phase 5 Ooogle. I like the idea about putting the Phase 5 in my current board rack.

I am VERY happy with the Inlander. For me, it is a better fit than the Green Room(a board I wanted, just didn't want to pay for). I think that Mike liked mine enough that he went an pick himself one up.

I still have not been on a Oogle, so who knows what I would think of that.
