We bought our first boat last year and had a great summer on it. One thing that needs addressing is the slippery platform. It is just great for feet, but if you try to put a ski on and aren't paying...

My conclusion from the post is that more fins makes a faster (more push) board? Is this a true statement?

197 or 209?

We got an X-5 (195) last winter and spent 7 weeks at the lake this summer. It truly is a crossover boat with skiing as the focus. The wife improved by 2mph in the course and we finally got our 5 year...

Here's the update. She absolutely loves her ski. It was perfect for her. She also got some of those fancy Radar gloves with the dowel in them and was able to up her course speed by 2mph. It's a pity...

That's okay, we are Canadian and vacation in the USA so I won't be using my phone hardly at all anyways. We have ample 30 pin connected iDevices to load music on so we should be just fine.
