Took my cousin out over the weekend. She actually surfed a little bit. This pic is kind of neat-- it shows a little coaching.

Nice looking wave! Did she manage not to lose the sunglasses??

She skied, wakeboarded and surfed without losing them. Amazing.

Oh yeah, I'll never get rid of the Broadcast. I forgot to put the center fin back on for her though. Made it a little slippery for a beginner.

I only run a single fin in mine. took the 2 outside ones off and no one has complained yet :0

GREAT board for teachin the noobs.. I do have to admit I go back and ride it every so often for old times sake. actually rode it a while ago when I tried to learn goofy..

bet she was grinning ear to ear after the day ended..

What size is that board?

mine is the 5'6" version, but there have been several different lengths over the last couple of years. mine is from 2007 and is rock solid. it's a heavy board..

No wonder! I just bought a 4'8 broadcase and am having a HECK of a time even surfing in a straight line. You sneeze, you drop out of the pocket.

Thanks! It's fun with just the single fin but really wild with only the two outer ones on it. When Daze and I were together at Sinclair we tried putting two of the center fins (we each had one) where the outer ones normally go. I can't remember exactly what result but I think it was faster. If you haven't tried just the two outer ones give it a go next time out just to change it up a little -- especially if this is your only board.
