    Default Newbie to board, looking for some guidance

    I just rec'd my new cover. It is a blue Westland. Ordered from overtons. Cost was about 450 delivered. I don't think I will use the button cover anymore. It doesn't breathe well, imho

    Red rocket is a very nice board. It's make for bigger guys and, while not as agile as the Flyboy Big Boy, it's a great cruiser that will still let you throw some tricks.

    You can also have a ton of fun with it since it is so stable.

I have no idea what to buy as far as a different board. The CWB ride has been a great board to get up and free ride on though.

    just to clarify: you fill 900 on both sides at once, or just surf side? it appears that you fill all bags completely?
    thanks again

    I have a 2006 XLV. Here is what I do to mine to go without the rope. I have a Hyperlite Broadcast 4'8" and stock ballast bags.

    Put factory front center sack in the rear locker on the port side, put factory rear locker sack where the front sack was, put the starboard rear locker sack under the observer seat on the port side. That sack is fed off of the previously capped off fitting from the port side locker sack. It fills from the drain fitting and I put a valve and a hose on the fill fitting so it will sort of vent and fill the port locker sack and fill this sack together. The sack in the port locker does not fill up all the way, its all bunched up in there. I run with the wake plate all the way down. It sounds stupid, but it works, and it was practically free. 10-11 mph depending on additional people in the boat other than my 3 girls and my wife. There is not enough weight in the front of the boat this way to try any wakeplate adjustments. There is enough push to allow you to go without the rope, but you will need to practice finding the right speed and stop people from moving around to keep it consistent.

    When I finally change bags I plan to put 1100 in port locker, 400 in starboard locker, factory bag center front, 400 under observer seat.
