Intermediate Wakeboard suggestions

So I attempted to upgrade the bindings on my 2008 ronix ibex to ronix one and I see that the binding patterns have changed a bit over the years to the point that I probably just need to get a new board.

I am 5'7" 195. I was looking at the ronix district for an upgrade board, but was wondering on other's thoughts. I am attempting tantrums, but not having much success. I can easily clear the wake with a grab, but that's about it.

Any other suggestions?

I would say just something consistent and err to the large size. Too large is a non-issue, where as too small can hinder your learning. The Ronix district is a great board to progress on, the CWB reverb, the Hyperlite Murray... you get the idea. Pick a board that is very middle of the road on it's characteristics and the better you get the more you'll develop likes and dislikes for how you want the board to react. Where are you in the Midwest?

Similar question/weight/ability here. I have an old Hyperlite Motive and same problems with my bindings. I was very interested in the Murray because I like water tricks and slides.

The local shop suggested the State 2.0 to me. Should this board even be in the running?

I'm an intermediate rider as well. I got the Murray 150 this season and love it. I like the lack of bottom features. Makes it easy to do surface spins. And I think it reinforces proper edging into the wake instead of relying on the channels.

Just upon looking at this slate 2.0, I would say that board wouldn't be in the running. If you are looking for more pop for tricks, a continuous rocker isn't typically what you look for.

I ended up just ordering a district 143cm board. If it's good enough for a pro, it's probably good enough for me.
