The new Liquid Force SST is sick man....tons of pop and its a heavy board, perfect for doin flip tricks and perfect for sticking with you on the wake to wake jumps....go for the 42" board

Mike,


I'm in the same boat you are size wise... same weight and hight.... Have you ever wakeskated before?... any thoughts into what kind of skate you are looking at, company wise? wood or composite? ... In regards to size, its all personal prefernce, but I find for me, being as tall as I (we) are, I find a bigger board is better for me... the smallest I would ever ride comfortably would be a 41 ... but I like to keep it in the 41-43 range...

I have a couple of Kampus skates that are brand new that I would be willing to let go cheap. $50 and it is yours

If you want to stay with HL, check out the new vinyl, or the catalyst is a popular choice.

I'm sure it is. I have tried composite and wood boards, I am partial to wood. There are a lot of reputable wakeskate cos. , you might want to do some research first.
