Suggestions for wake surfboards?

Am getting a wake surfboard before next season. Have only seen a couple of models. Any suggestions on what I should get?

I really like the Hyperlite Broadcast 4"9... I bought when I was still a beginner and it's a great board to progress... I liked wakesurfing so much I hardly wakeboarded last season

Depends on how tall you are and how much you weigh ... my bro is 50-60 # lighter ... we ride different boards, he can ride mine fine, but his is a bit harder for me ... I have the Landlock, he has a few different ones.

Hi
I am also considering getting a wakesurf this winter. Have you tried it behind the X5? Will the wake be large enough?
With a smaler wake, what size of board is ideal,
Thanks,
JC

Sounds like a bigger board would be more suitable for riders of different sizes? (Smaller people can ride bigger boards easier than bigger people can ride smaller ones?)

Okay, mine is the Landlock, my brother rides the Broadcast

I think we also have an older Inland Surfer (Edit, we demo'd one-didn't buy it)

The other board is a Liquid Force

http://www.inlandsurfer.com/boards.asp
http://www.liquidforce.com/wsurf_inlander.htm

Here is the WakeWorld buyers guide to WakeSurf Boards

The Liquid Force was too thick for my preference, the Hyperlite Landlock was easy for me to learn to ride w/o the rope, but not as maneuverable for tricks compared to the Hyperlite Broadcast

Inlandsurfer Blue lake is a great board. It is about the same size as a Landlock, but is faster and more fun. The landlock is a good all around board for the price, but is limiting for advanced riders. The broadcast is good for intermediate to advanced riders, or smaller <175 lbs riders (due to its smaller size). Shredd stixx makes a good board also, it is very bouyant, making it easy to ride.

I really lik my inland surfer blue board better than the hyperlite. It seems to have more flotaion and is easier to ride all around espically on a smaller wake. Being weight challged (245) I need all the help I can get. I am getting the Red Tide board and can not wait to try it out

Thanks for the info. As Santa did not bring me the board, I will hold out for Valentines day, then my birthday, then Cinco de Mayo, and finally St. Pats day. If I am still sans board, I will have to buy myself an easter present. Red Tide sounds like a killer (pun intended!).
