    Why would you want the platform off?

    He doesn't want the platform off, he wants to start off of the platform.

    Drew,

    So you don't get wet!
    Or it looks/is "cool"

    With the boards that you and your family use, it would just crush the boards. With a compression molded board it is possible to start from the platform and not have the board be crushed.

    I bought a phase 5 trident.....is that compression moulded? I think it's carbon fibre,or at least looks like it.

    It is a carbon fiber board, however I would not personally start off the platform with that board...mainly because of how expensive it is. Most phase five boards won't get damaged from starting from the platform. It can be a little sketchy to start from the platform, and you always run the risk of shoving the board into the transom of the boat. When you kick the board into the transom you can crack the noise of the board, and scratch your gel coat....sad day

    So we were out yesterday and I found that with 2 people in the boat (approx 325lbs total) I needed to dump out about 100-200 lbs to get the goofy wave to clean up.. regular is fine with both sides full. When we added one more person the goofy wave cleaned up with everything full
