I am looking for some board suggestions to upgrade from my Broadcast. Its been a good board to learn on but I want to get something better... Unfortunately there isnt any demo options around me so I am kind of lost as to which direction to go... I am 6'5 220 and have a 2008 LSV with 1100s and the IBS so my wave is pretty good. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just upgraded from a hl broadcast to a phase 5 danielo diamond. Loving it so far, skim style board. Ive only been surfing for a month or so but got the p5 last week and am enjoying the loose feel when free riding. Im 5'8 180 with a 09 lsv stock ballast

Phase 5 Model X is a nice board that would fit you well. 3 fin configuration to let you try different setups. They call is a hybrid as it has some skim & some surf characteristics. Triple X Nitro/Slayer, Inland Surfer Red Rocket or go custom with a Soulcraft, Walker or Doomswell surf style board.Drew

Thanks Drew... So you are thinking a surf style or hybrid is the way to go given my size, wave, and current board?... Is the Broadcast a hybrid type board? I want to be able to generate more speed and pop up off the face of the wave... I appreciate the advice and insight...2008 LSV 1100s 650IBS Reversible Pumps w\Timers

i'd go surf style if you are wanting to get off the face. xxx makes some solid entry surf style boards that won't break the bank. try that for a few months, then use it as a learner board and pop for a custom from soulcraft.. etc...'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

What do you guys think about the Triple X Slayer Pro X? Would that work for me? What size?2008 LSV 1100s 650IBS Reversible Pumps w\Timers

Go with the 5' for sure if you do. Rode a Triple X, either Slayer or Slasher, last summer and it was a lot of fun, easy to ride, felt fast to me. I should have been trying for more airs on it instead of 360s.At the time it seemed like a good idea...
