Im thinking its size and speed would be nice on my wave which is decent but nothing huge. (750 plus 400 bow and people)

I have one.

I would consider it "squirly". It is a skim style board, you will have to work it some. The size is a blast but I wouldn't call it fast.

I need a faster board...the CWB Ride I have seems really slow! But maybe i don't have enough push. Not sure how as I am running same setup as many here. 750 surf side locker 400 on seat and had 400 in bow and several bodies.

I have to get pretty close to the boat to be able to go ropeless and even then it's not for very long.

Or it could be that I don't know what I'm doing...

BTW I'm 6'2" 210 if that matters...

Try to get a TripleX off ebay like I did or contact Mark at Lakewakes. He's in your neighborhood.

We put rain-x on our cwb ride and it rides much faster than it did prior, or at least that's what I was told.

I waxed it last year thinking that would help, I really don't think it did anything. After I did it I read on Wakeworld that waxing it actually slows it down.

I may try your rainX idea. Can't make it any worse at this point. What's it going to do, Go backwards??

I could see how wax would slow it down .. that's essentially just adding gunk on the bottom of the board. Might be different if you were grinding rails or something.
