Board for tricks and 360s

We use a IS Blue Lake and it is great to get to intermediate level so now we are looking for a board that allows for more movement. We,are 115 to 175 lbs and surf an x2 well weighted. We are in our 50s so not looking to go crazy but we are both athletic. Any suggestions appreciated!

I would look at a 4'3" Bean Hybrid from LakeWakes. I just got a 4'7" for the same reasons you are looking (I am 270#) and it is amazing.

I just posted my initial thoughts on this board yesterday (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=69405). Will put up some more video shortly.

Phase 5 have some good skim boards that are designed for tricks and 360's. My son loves his and can do 360's at will. I prefer surf style boards and you can't go wrong with Soulcraft or Wake1.

I know for my family and myself, we love the skim style boards (P5 Drew Danielo, Victoria Factor, P5 Oogle for beginners) . I have two "surf" style boards (Walker Bomb Pop and F-18) that get used twice a season, maybe. We just don't find them as fun. The kids can do ollies, 180's, 360's ( the very, very occasional 720) and shuvits (or pop shuvits, I always forget the difference) but they can't even land a 360 on a surf style.

We also find it harder to get up on the "surf" style, but that could just be us.

I am leaning towards Phase 5 also for surface tricks. Spent time talking to Drew and two pro surfers and next purchase for me is the Phase 5 Prop.

I have a blue lake and can blow 360s on it now, it does ride like a bus but definitely doable. That said I also have a Danielo Diamond and it makes things like a 360 etc much easier!

Phew. I always feel like we're the only ones that prefer skim style to surf. Good to hear there's some that like the skim style too.
