I need a wake surfboard for relatively inexperienced surfers. Ages range from 15 to 50 and 100 lbs to 185lbs. Something relatively easy to get up on, somewhat stable but capable enough to provide a challenge for awhile. Any suggestions?

Lots of choices out there, but I recommend the HL Broadcast 4'9" model. (and I am not a big HL fan) I have had people ride it from 80lbs to 250. Easy enough to cruise on, and agile enough to do shuvs, 360's and small airs. The bigger model Broadcast/Landlock will be ALOT easier to learn on and just cruise on, but may limit you a little more once you start doing any tricks.

We have an inland surfer/yellow loogey. Larger people can't do it well.
My husband is 180 and he is great on it but our friends that are 200 can't seem to do it. It's too short. I think, the larger the person the longer the board should be.


:cool:

This link should answer your questions: I have the yellow loogey, too and love it. A little more advanced, but up to 185# you should be OK. How big will your wake be?

We have the CWB ride, my nephew (14-110lbs) was able to get up on it last weekend, and I ride it ok.....it's challenging enough for us, came with a free instructional video...and better fins according to the guy at Wileys. Fits in our board rack just fine..lots of fun so far. :cool:

With my experience I have tought people on the HL Landlock and then after they get better I let them on the Phase 5 or my island surfer

Bruce,

Call me and you can borrow mine. I'm not currently using it!

CWB Ride. It's forgiving, and it's big enough to handle just about any weight of rider.

Tex,

Does that offer stand for all Ft Worth residents. I've never tried the wakesurfing, but would love to. Where do you ride?
