Looking at getting a new skate. You guys were very helpful a few years back helping me pick out a WM. I ride behind the boat only and I am into the w2w stuff as much as the shuvs outside. I ride a 40 now at 160lb. Should I change the size or stick with it? Anyone have any input on brand for me? Digging the leaf, remote, wm, and original!

Thanks for the input!

I love the new watermonsters decks (or last summer's, I should say)! Both remote and WM have a similar construction but different shapes. I haven't ridden the new remotes, but I enjoyed riding the 13 yan. If things haven't changed, I think the remote rockers are a little bit faster, where as with a WM I tended to have to ride with my weight back a bit.

it is tough to find a boat friendly rocker line on a current wakeskate. Try to find an old LF Reed concave circa 2008....perfect for w2w Cool

I found my 2018 WM 39.5 pretty good behind the boat, depending on the size of wake you most conmanly ride maybe size up to the 40 or 40.5.
