I was riding a skim style when learning but it was not big enough for my weight (200-205lbs)....I then got a 4' 8" Doomswell Neo which I love, but its so thick, its almost to buoyant...its so fast that I feel like I am on the "brakes" a lot. Also does not fit in my racks so I had to get a special rack to mount under my tower from Corson Piper (very nice setup)....but I digress.

Last week, my buddy brought a Byerly Hazard on boat that is a few years old. 4' 8" and it felt right in-between those 2 boards, super agile and was sooooo easy to carve. totally loved it. Seems like 2015 is last year they made that model and I cant find it in a 4' 8"...on the 5' 2", which I don't want. And its my buddies favorite board, so he is not selling.

SO, if anyone is looking to get rid of their Byerly Hazard in a 4' 8"....or knows where I can get one, would love to hear about it. Located in North Carolina near Lake Norman.

Its true, its a great board. I've got a Doomswell Nubstep that can feel fast when I've got my feet too far toward the nose. Start with your back foot further back. I find Doomswells like to be ridden fairly tail heavy, so try that on your neo. When I'm not paying attention to my foot placement, I'm always on the brakes.

One of our regulars rides a Hazard and I agree, its a good step in between a starter board and Doomswell. not selling his either.

A good option in lieu of the Hazard is the Slingshot Butterbar, you can get em for like $320 at wakehouse. Inland Surfer Tako fits the bill too, believe it's $300.00 on Evo right now

Inland's black pearl is another good one depending on your size. ^^ good price on a Tako

Anybody have any experience with Liquid Force Primo's? I'm in the same market as the OP (something between an entry and custom glass board) and was checking that board out too...
