I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Walker boards are the best. I know others will pipe up for the CWB boards, which are darn good, but if you want the best, you've got to ride a Walker. http://www.thewalkerproject.com/

Talk to Dennis, he'll get you set up. Send pics of your boats wake and what your riding style is, and they'll get you on the right board for your application.

Talk to the guys there. I'm sure you could work something out with them. They are really easy to work with.

Tell them I sent you. :D

I have both a CWB Tsunami and a Shapiro Shaka. The CWB is a durable composite board that's good to learn on. The Shapiro is a foam core fiberglass board and it rocks compared to the CWB. I've never surfed a Walker or an Inland surfer so can't comment on how my Shapiro compares.

The Walkers are foam core composites as well. You can also get virtually anything you want put on the board. They offer airbrush painting and custom artwork too.

I have the Inland surfer red woody, good board for learning an cruising, fits in the racks as well.

Jim, MBD sells MC Walker boards, too. Contact him and see if he will let you demo one before you buy. Jim/Dennis = good peeps.

I got the IS Blue Lake and love it! This last weekend I got a chance to ride a Walker. That board was fast. Think that will be my next board!!!!!!!!!

We were happy with the Ronix boards we started with too... but to step up to a Walker or an IS is a MASSIVE improvement.

Bryan, I was kidding. Heard those run a pretty penny though.

I had no clue that Walker would customize, I might have to order a new board. I am in the middle of making my tow truck(2000 F250 Powerstroke) into a mastercraft edition truck. My local dealer is hooking me with mastercraft accessories and I am getting close to redoing the interior with Mastercraft boat vinyl with Mastercraft stitching- a matching surf board would be a nice touch.

Cripes, you could go as far as sending them a pic of your tow rig and they could put that on the board for you.

Not yet, it is a side project and I just started. I hope to have some good progress made by the middle of the summer. I have decals and badging, trying to debate on what to do with paint job. I will post some pics once some significant progress has been made.
