I'm just getting into wakesurfing and want to buy a board.
6'-210lbs. Any help on what would be the best board to buy?
I'm looking for an advanced board but feel like the board I have used on the past sinks to easy with my weight.

Any thoughts and advise would be much appreciated.

I would recommend an Inland Surfer blue lake. I have heard many raving reviews on this board and all around it is a good board to have.

I plan on getting one for next year. Currently have an HP Broadcast and I wouldn't recommend it.

I second this! I had soo much fun on this board. It made my Hyperlite Landlock feel like it belonged in the trashcan.

I third the Inland Blue Lake, for your size you'll love it. So fast and way easy to keep in the pocket.....We have the Blue Lake and the Yellow Loogey, we use the Blue Lake 80% of the time....If you can't find one local, check here:

I'm a similar size 6'2", 225..........would the Inland Blue Lake be the right size for me?

And can someone recommend a board for my twins who are very close in weight 135 vs 75????

i agree that the blue lake is a awesome board. i also have a yellow loogey which is a fun board also.

76 s&s, go to inlandsurfer.com and you can compare different boards. i would not recommend the red tide.

just fyi, i have been told the blue lakes are sold out for 07:(

Roonie whats wrong with you Broadcast

It is squirrely and hard to control. Great for just cruising but try and do tricks with it and you will without a doubt do a faceplant.

Ok, one last question. I have a prostar 197 / very small wake. Hope to trade-in for a X-14, little better surf wake. Should I be looking at the Red Tide? TTU, why not the Red Tide?

thanks again to all..

If you put enough weight in the X-14, get the blue, if you aren't going to run much weight/people get the red. I won't speak for ttu, but the red is big and harder to maneuver.....

correct. due to it's size only "large" riders can control the board.

the blue lake is great on almost any wake.

Also a lot of great suggestions here about boards and most recommend the IS blue lake.

The Inland Surfer Blue is a good board but the Shred Stix JaMaKo is a great board. For young kids, I recommend the 4'9'' Broadcast. I've taught a lot of kids to surf on the Broadcast.

you are correct that the shred stix is a good board. just a little to much $$$ for this guy.

Roonie you just need to learn to tame your Broadcast :D . I removed the outer fins to loosen it up a bit and learned big frontside shiftys and 360's on it this season... With that said, if I was in the market for a new board it would probably be an Inland Surfer.

We have a hyperlite broadcast. We got this one because it was a 4-way buy so we needed something to fit 4 -6 people. Works well for that. I like it

I've heard good things about shred stixx, maybe a notch above inland surfer: shred stixx, walker project & walzer....

I have a Phase 5 Oogle and really like it. Everyone that gets in our boat loves this board. The Oogle is the largest of the 3 boards. I am 6'5" 215. The neat thing about these boards is they are custom painted and no two are alike. http://www.phase5boards.com/productOogleBoard.cfm

I want to start wakesurfing but wonder where do you put the board when not surfing, does MC have racks for a 2006 x1

I put most of my surfboards in the board racks. The Shred Stix is too big for the rack so I put it on its side on top of the rack and then bungie it to the tower. I also put boards upside down on the back sun deck.
