View Full Version : Suggestions on beginner wakeboards?

06-03-2012, 07:31 PM
Wife and 2 daughters all between 5'3~5'6" and 115 to 125 pounds.
Me, 5'10", 180lbs.

Looking for suggestions on beginner wakeboards w/o breaking the bank - I don't know anything about boards/sizing, bindings, etc. Just looking to move the kids away from that damn tube and have some fun! (although both kids slalom, and the wife can rip on a ski).

My first board was a Hyperlite Forefront and I still love this board. Only been boarding for a couple of seasons and have progressed pretty well. I picked mine up for only ~200$ from djsboardshop.com. It was the previous years model, but for a brand new wakeboard you can't beat the price.

I just bought this:


Gets good reviews for beginners all the way up to advanced.

I bought my wife a Liquid Force Angel. This board has the same shape as the Trip which is known for being one of the best boards to begin/progress on. She rode it for the first time two weeks ago and really liked it.
