See if this idea flys'

I would like an "OFF" center board tip to tail Like a Shawn Murray with a protruding spine on the bottom for soft landings yet off to the center on for toe side…OR HAVE INSERTS MORE adjustable from side to side.

I do like the Hyperlite System binds ~ they say Carbon, but the bindings need to be twice as light…more like mountain bike stuff…Boards are very light now, they could work on the system bindings and shave 100 grams or so.

My current CWB (Connelly) Standard is heavy AF. It's a big 143.

I like the feel of the board but definitely could go to something lighter

I have a Hyperlite Baseline and I love it. It's not very poppy but it is very stable. I just put on some Ronix District binding but haven't had an opportunity to ride it yet with the new boots.

I have the 141 and it is surprisingly light. You can "one-hand" it in and out of the racks if you need to.

On a new board, I would like to see some channels like on a cable board.

I have been toying with upping my speed. I currently ride at 18.5, but am thinking about trying 19 or 19.5 to see if I can get some more energy on the line.

What boat are you riding behind? I ran 22.5 behind an X30 this weekend to get the wake cleaned up

Wow you ride very slow for owning a 205V. I fill 750's in the back with another 800 in front and we ride 21.5-22mph behind our 205v

I ride an older ronix ibex, im 6'5" but ride a 139 board, we have a 2013 xstar with gen 2 including bags including 700lbs lead, for wakeboarding we leave front bags empty, not sure why but it was a recommendation by Harley Clifford and its worked perfect, we ride at 23.5 mph and 75', always liked the lighter ronix boards used a liquidforce and it seemed so heavy,

i need to find a picture of our first boat and wakeboard we learned with lol

I use a Prostar extremely short line to find the curl from the boat, board easily 5 feet Into the air at the slower speeds, 18ish…boat is more in the water slower speeds…pretty much still a beginner, mater in fact had to go to a slalom line and ditch the wakeboard rope to find the best curl. So if you don't have a lot of curl and ballast, short line works, at least to get you started, easy wake to wake…lol

Looks like I will try a little faster this weekend then.

If what I read is correct about you having a 205V, it's probably very similar to the Nautique 210 that I've done the majority of my riding behind. Try 21-21.5 and about 60' on the rope. Should give you a nice, clean wake shape and size
