I dont know anything about boards, but the ones at teh dicks in Greensboro looked to be on clearence as they make room for the Hunting stuff. I saw a liquid force for 249 and body glove and hydroslide.

if you want a at least half decent wakeboard... don't buy it from dicks... hydroslide and body glove are DOODOOOOOOOOO!!! LF stuff is good but it depends on what you buy... best advice is that if it's at dicks and it's a wakeboard i'd look it up and see how the model compares... all the good stuff you can find on wakeside.com and buywake.com... good closeouts on grizzly-sports.com and boardersmall.com

If they are selling a model at Wal Mart, (hydroslide) you can bet its not the best.
Stick with the more well known wake brands, lots of good places to get them on the net for a discount. Don't waste your money.

Liquid Force is a decent product, in particular at $249, extra good if it has boots mounted on it. Nothing wrong with Liquid Force seeing that is a top leader is board sales.

Body glove is just fine too, however it's each to their own.....

Liquid Force makes low end boards as well that are often sold at places like Dicks. You have to be careful. Also, Body Glove and Hydroslide are junk unless you are putting your 10 year old daughter on a board for the first time.

board brands worth buying from that's their middle-top end stuff: ronix, liquid force, hyperlite, slingshot, krown, gator, cwb, or obrien (you have byerly too which is a subsidiary of hyperlite)... same goes for bindings... if you don't buy middle - top of these company's products you or your children will soon out grow the product and you'll be buying new again... some don't mind throwing money away others like to get bang for their buck... good luck and shop for knowledge

Just saw a bunch of stuff on overstock.com, lots of wakeboards, bindings and ropes and handles. Lots of good brands there, great prices. If someone is looking, it might be worth your time to check it out.
