Hyperlite broadcast? What size? How do you like it?


Also, what is your skill level and your expectations in comparison to what you are used to?

That will aid others in responses.

Inland surfer Red Woody or Red Rocket. I say this because when I started wakesurfing, I was 6'2" and a half (still am) and 275 pounds. I am now down to 240. Easy board but not boring. Very nice quality too.

I ride two completely different boards depending on what i feel like doing....

Messing around I like the Ronix One Skimmer 4'10" i believe. Which is a really playful fun board that lets you spin really easy.

If your looking price wise..... wait for it.... the Ronix Cortez (5'6" is what I've used)!!! THis is my brother in law's board and he is about your size and it is a nice board for the buck IMO. I rode it last weekend and it ran like a rocket on my wake. For him he is easily able to let go of the rope and pump in quite dandily.

I'm running an 04' LSV with 750 back, 800 cabin, 400 in ski floor and ,425-500 ibs. Depends on your boat you ride on. I think smaller wake/slower speed you'll need a longer boar and bigger wake/faster speed you can get away with a shorter board. (Don't quote me on that but I think that is how it works)

Just my 2 cents.... Good luck finding that perfect ride....
