I'm 6'3" 200. I ride a 145 wakeboard.

I haven't had the sack to skate when my boat is loaded down!

I'm riding a hyperlite catalyst 114cm, and think it's about perfect for my size. i've ridden liquid and ronix double deck 42's, and found them to feel like they're dragging a little bit.

I would appreciate it if you were to go like, say 142 or so. That thing plows a lot of water with me on it. Also, if you wanted yo gain like, say 100lbs, you'd be all set.

Thanks to Alberta Surfer. We will pass it on to the next guy with the same deal when done with it. Thanks again. Can't wait to try it.

My buddy riding switch

Not as easy as we thought. But we got up and did some Ollie jumps and surface switches. Just getting the feel for it.

Lookin good. Almost time for some wake to wakes! When I first started jumping I shortened the rope up a bit. Casing a jump on a skate is rough!

Yeah, riding it in general is rough. Been having a lot of fun with it out in the flats. Trying ollie 180's and a few kick tricks off one wake. Haven't had the nuts yet to attempt wake to wake. Not even using ballast yet.

Is it the same concept, stand up off the wake to pop and then hold it. Would the board actually stay under you without holding it on wake to wake?

You kinda gotta Ollie it. Approach wake with knees bent, push down with your back foot and let your front foot up a bit, and when the back of the board leaves the wake, bend that knee too and let the board kinda sick up to your feet. I think there are some nice YouTube videos that cover wake to wake jumps well.
