Best wakesurf board for a prostar 190

Okay so i need some advice on which board to buy for a 225lb gorilla "myself" to wakesurf behind my prostar 190. I already have 2-400 pound sacs and 1-750 pound sac. Its not going to to throw a big wake so i need some advice on a board I can buy to just cruise on and ride with no rope.

Personally, I'd get a custom board made. I've got suggestions, if your want them.

Just buy a used ocean board. 5'10" + of anything thick (fun board style) would work just fine.

I was wandering too about a ocean board because the wake is so small. I think im going to try the hyperlite landlock though. After reading about it I think it will do everything I need it to do which is basically just go in a straight line. Thanks guys. Will post Video in a few weeks.

I am 260-270. I have a landlock. It is a great board. I have used it when I had my 85 sas. I was able to go rope less for a while. With not very much in the boat. It turns ok. It's no short board but it dose a good job. I would stay away from an ocean board. There is a lot more drag on an ocean board. Just a good boat board.

To the o.p. what year 190 are you trying to surf behind? I've thought about trying it behind my 90 ps190 but figured it was a waste of effort. Guess I was wrong?

I have a 2000 sportstar. Which is similar to the 94-97 prostar 190 hull.

So I thought I would do a follow up on trying to wakesurf behind prostar 190 on a landlock surfboard weighing 225. I came up with this scientific equation.

225 pound gorilla+ landlock wakesurf board+ Prostar190 = Anchor at the bottom of the ocean.

It just can not be done behind my boat at that weight. Im to cheap to buy a bigger boat so the Diet was immediately started 4 weeks ago and im now 199. I will report back again once the weather warms up. I know it can be done.
