Thanks for the reply inland surfer is sending video. That board which according to their charts looks to be the best for me is around $450 on their site do you know of a place to get a better deal and is their really a $150 to $175 difference between this one and other brands comparable board?

Just my 2 cents but I have the trick boardz velocity which is more the skim type board and I love it. They have several different style boards, all of which are the skim board style and too me, it was extremely easy to learn. They are cheaper (or were, when I bought mine) than the traditional style board. These type boards have to have a clean wake to ride though and absolutely won't ride in a foamy wake.

Trickboardz.com is the site, I think and are based in the Austin TX, area.

I have a Hyperlite LandLock 6'-1" and an HO Kona 5'-6". The larger board is thicker and more bouyant than the smaller thinner Kona. The large board is great for beginners because it is forgiving and easy to ride. The Kona is more nimble and requires a little more skill. Both of these boards can be found for less than $300.

Hope this helps,
Jman
