    I'll try taking off the middle fin on my Hyperlite Broadcast and see how that works. IS there a better "intermediate" board I should look at? And what size? I'm 6'5" 200lbs, and my wife is 5'5" 135lbs.
    Surprising with 1500 up front i still have a good 2-3 feet of nose out of the water when she is approaching you at idle

    Pumps will be fine

    Fill time should be apx 1 minute per 100 lbs of ballast. 6-7minutes for the 650s and 10-12 minutes for the 1100s

    That board is fine for what your doing, as in learning, there is another thread talking about boards to try out.

    General rule of thumb, the lighter a board is the faster it is in the water, and the more expensive a board is the lighter and faster it is in the water.

    Hi guys - I am helping my bud get his new Mojo dialed and want to find out where is a good starting point. He wants a good wave but probably won't run as many bags as OP.

    It sounds like 1100's in the rears and a bow sac might be a good start? Does the Mojo care if the weight is centered in the bow vs. all on one side?

    Thanks!

    you need to ride more boards . . . . .

    The shape and buoyancy are what make a board go faster. Fins also make a difference and quad fin or twin fin set up will offer more speed on a surf style board because there is no fin down the middle like a thruster that holds it back a little.

    Flyboy (Jeff & James Walker) do a ton of prototyping of boards. Sometimes technical, but always entertaining read:

    While these were written specific to traditional surfboards, the terminology is basically the same for wakesurfers:

    I will check that out but i have ridden more then a dozen different boards and almost all of them have been different styles of surf and my general finding is exactly how i put it. Some boards are heavy such as a couple IS board and they are fast but nothing is as fast as the Soul Craft i have and like i said a lighter board will be faster in the water because it too has less drag.

    Also some, but not all boards that have 3 fins will be faster by removing the center fin.
    On my Soul Craft its faster by removing the 2 smaller fins and also replacing the rear fins with slightly smaller ones makes it more maneuverable.

    Also another consideration is Rider Weight, if your light or well under the boards maximum weight limit the board will of course be much faster then if your heavier and closer to the boards weight limit.

    Fins make a big difference if the rider is heavier and sinking the board deeper in the water. In other words, different sized riders may feel different things from the same fin setups.

    fins 101:

    http://www.surfing-gear.net/surfboard-fins.html

    A number of pros are now running up to 6 fins on surf style boards. The number of fins shouldn't impact the speed of the board, it's the size of the fins, specifically the base.

    This impacts the board's buoyancy. If you're too heavy for a board, you are impacting the bouyancy (i.e. sinking it) and therefore not gaining the full potential of the design. Ultimately, this is why there isn't a "one size fits all" surfboard.
