First Wakesurf Board advise

I just got a bought and love kneeboarding and wakeboarding, but I want to get into wakesurfing to take it easy on my aging body.

What is a good board that I can progress with and also be a good house board? I know I am kinda asking for it all. However, my crew will be all newbies and I have only wakesurfed once but did go ropeless.

I am considering just buying a cheap CWB Ride to get started or find something better used. Let me know what you suggest or what you have!

Thanks.

We started on a Ride. Nice easy board to learn on.

Many questions:

How big are you?
Do you need one board to serve several riders?
Are you all novices?


There are "General all Purpose" surfboards from just about every manufacturer. Our family, when we first started surfing went with a Liquid Force Fish. Now- nobody rides it.

I'm a bigger guy that just wants to ride and have fun. I went with a Surf Style board- Ronix Carbon Thruster. I'm not doing 360's or any cool tricks on that board. Its like a Cadillac, not a Porche.

My wife and kids ride a Doomswell Neo and a Inland Surfer Sweet Spot.

I taught all our kids and friends kids to surf on a Phase 5 scamp.

Its a money pit......but a blast.

I'm 165 and yes I would like a board for everyone. As I progress, I will upgrade.

call brock at doomswell and give him boat, wake and so forth. you can spend some money on a generic cwb, ronix and so forth but you will end up buying a upper end board. I know both doomswell and inland surfer are both having sales.

The Broadcast board is a compression board that's near bullet proof. Cheap, easy to get up on and pretty good for a wide variety of riders. You'll want a better board for yourself later but this one will always be there for the bigger and new riders.
