    Default Another Board Question

    i've been wakesurfing for about 3 years and can ride without the rope. Problem is no one else i ever take can learn. I ride a hyperlite broadcast. Would this board be easier for newer people to ride.

    I can't see the pic, but the broadcast is one of the easiest boards to get newbies to ride, so I'm stumped.

    It's not the board, as Drew said the Broadcast is one of the easiest boards for newbies.

    Maybe, depending on size of the riders, but something else isn't right, IMO

    The Ronix Koal is not an easy board for beginers it will pearl very easy. If you want a Ronix try the Duke. Now that is an easy board for anyone to ride regardless of size. We use both the broadcast and the Landlock to train beginers. The Landlock is the easier of the 2.

    It's very hard to teach old skiers (like I was) how much they have to stand on the front foot to surf. After 30 years of leaning back it just doesn't seem natural. I tell them 99% gas (front foot) and only 1% brakes (back foot). While this isn't strictly true (more like 70/30 if you are a pretty big guy) it helps them conceptualize it.
