I'm looking to order a new wakeboard today and wanted to know if anyone has tried / has an opinion on the new Liquid Force Groove wakeboard. I've read what reviews are available and watched a few videos on the board, but wanted some real test and trial input. All of the boards that I have owned in the past were more of a single fin design, but the groove is a quad plus one molded in fins system. Has anyone tried this board or one similar with the 5 molded in fins? I want a board that will hold an edge and give me the "grip" needed, but also don't want a board that hangs up and ends up slamming my head into the water due to too much "bite."

Hi,

Looking for wakeboard? Lets find out here in Wakeboard Reviews.

The Liquid Force Shane is a dream come true for wakeboarders who love the breathtaking air of big pop and the refreshing spritz of a soft, buttery landing. A lithium 7 foam core is just one feature that makes the Hyperlite Drive one of the fastest boards available today. Hyperlite Driver riders say that the board gets plenty of attention for great tracking but is often overlooked when it comes to big breaks and spins – two things it can handle equally well. Perhaps the most intuitive board for intermediate wakeboarders, the Liquid Force Omega is pure fun on the open water with features that keep riders stable yet help them get the pop and rails they’re thirsting for. The Liquid Force Omega also features molded canted fins for excellent positioning in the tow, and a gradual three-stage rocker is surprisingly consistent.

There were different kinds and types of wakeboard. Here as follows:

a. Liquid Force Omega
b. Hyperlite Murray
c. Gator Boards Signature
d. Liquid Force Watson
e. Hyperlite Marke
f. Gator Boards Classic
g. Slingshot Response
h. O'Brien Valhalla

The premium Wakeboards from Hyperlite Wakeboards are the best in the business and will make the most out of your watersports adventures. The Hyperlite Drive features a concave top deck that increases overall responsiveness, while its monocoque construction and layered glass add sound stability and smooth freestyle glide to your wakeboarding pleasure.

Went ahead and bought the Groove. Finally got to put it on the water yesterday, and I was pretty impressed with it. If you like a board that's free and doesn't bind, that's it. It actually tracks pretty well and cuts into the water great when you lean on it, but the board is slick and doesn't catch and assist in faceplanting...I do enough of that without the assistance of the board.

Thwak - sounds like you already had your mind made up and were just looking for some validation. :) Have fun with it. I'm just getting into wakeboarding at age, ahgm, 35. I'm finding I like it more than waterskiing which I've done my whole life.

I'm pleased with the board. PolarBear - can't promise that you'll like wakeboarding more than skiing, but I sure do. There's just so many more options in what you can do. Good luck with it and have fun.
