Go intermediate with the length. Definately no 4'6" to start off with.. The 5'6" would probably be a good one to start off with. Knox's board is a CWB razr 5'6" IIRC.. Mine is the Hyperlite landlock. 5'11" it is a little to long to work out most tricks.. Although it is a great beginner board I wish I had bought a little shorter...

No Kidding!!!!! The reason I have had to drive to CSM is really to run the boat and make sure everything is OK....And if it weren't I'd be there so MC of Charlotte could take care of it.

I WAS planning on flying in next year...

If you need a surfboard check out a couple of your friendly MasterCraft dealers. I know www.waterskis.com and www.redlinewatersports.com would be more than happy to help make sure you get the right board and a great deal.

Thanks for all the input guys. I'm excited to give this surfing thing a try once the motor is broken in a bit more. Corey - your shop will certainly be seeing me. I've got a lengthy shopping list for my new boat buyer's discount day!
