If you are looking for something for only you I would suggest the Icon at 50" x 20" x 3/4" it is going to be more your size but, if you want something to grow into and that others on the boat will be able to ride I would suggest the Prop is 54" x 20 1/2" x 3/4" you can check all the Phase5's HERE

Whatever you decide, I'd recommend a board that has a maximum weight range "of up to 140-150lbs". Anything larger then that and you won't be heavy enough to set the rails and work the wake like it sounds you want to.

Hey Dylan, I don't think that Dennis saw your question, so I'll respond about the bullet. James rides that board frequently.

The bullet is excellent at surface 3's. It's well balanced and easy to spin. Sean makes a good point, you'll want a board that is built to your weight, James is about 150 pounds, and rides a 4'4"'ish board. You'd need one significantly smaller.

As for shuv's. The board will shuv, but it's design doesn't lend itself well to landing them. The fin placement out towards the rails and the fin depth tend to cause the inside fin to catch in the wake.

The newest design of the Bullet has a slightly fuller nose, so it can land the shuv's, but the fin issue remains. Further, the shuv back out is hard due to the fin depth.

There are other boards that are more suitable for learning or practicing shuv's.

Picture of James throwing a shuv on a bullet from last year at Shasta, and the second picture is of the newest bullet outline.
