View Full Version : thinking about a new board

01-29-2009, 09:06 AM
I started on the standard hyperlite broadcast 5'6. still keep it around as it seems to be a good board to teach on. currently riding an inland surfer 4skim. yes, the hot pink one....
like the board, but thinking about getting a different board. kind of eyeing a phase5 drew daniels pro model...

anyone else riding this board?

Nope. But I just picked up the Broadcast as I'm a newbie and expect to use it to teach everybody all summer.

great board to learn on. I still ride it occasionally. feels like a cadillac compared to the 4skim. I have only had 2 out of the 12 or so people that I have taught to surf that have not been able to get up on the broadcast. pull the 2 outer fins off and it will become a little looser once you feel real comfortable with it.

Won't be this year; I have a lot of people to teach.

Man if you check out the latest Wakesurf Mag, there are just a ton of new board manufactures out there. You should dig a little more and maybe head off the beaten path a bit and see what you come up with. Just a suggestion.

Good for you Salty, I hope you get to be a Famous Board shaper, so I could say I knew you when!

send me some info. I have no issues trying "off the beaten path", just liked the shape of the phase5 products.

With both 4-skim and Phase5 being skim I don't think that they would be much different. I have a phase5, IS Blue, and HL Broadcast 4.9 and my next board will be TWP James Walker sig. It's a surf style and only picked it up and it's super light. Something different, although I haven't grown out of my Phase5. Demo before buying is always a good thing. I'm looking forward to boards I can try out at events this summer.

nice looking, and I love the color.
I got a lot of s--t for my pink inland surfer board, so I will def. be getting that color again..

have to wait until after the boat show out here march 25th before I start to shop(to get the wife in the mood to spend money again) so I'll check ya out as it gets closer...

4-6 weeks if you want a custom color???

I have been to their website a few times and am intrigued. get over to portland about every other year. have been talking about a spring trip to play heron lakes great blue course again, as it kicked my arse last time, so if it happens, would love to take a ride.

if I'm not mistaken, one area of portland along the river was a topic of much debate to ban boats with any ballast??
