I dont have the greatest wake but i figured if i could ride the Cortez the Shreddstixx would be really easy to ride. What board would be good for me (surfstyle)?
I would take a look at some of the higher-end models from Ronix, like the Carbon Thruster. This is going to be a much faster board and more forgiving coming down the wave with the amount of rocker they put in the nose. The board has many different fin options, making the board versatile. You are able to give the board a locked-in feel, or make it very loose for those 360's!
Custom boards are nice, but reality is..they aren't for everyone.
