Looking for a women's wakeboard for the wife, can't be pink or purple she not a girly girl.
She is 5'0" and 120-140lbs.

Your wife must be like mine. I got the same instructions when finding her a board. "No pink or purple"

What is her ability level? The Jett may be a little aggressive depending on her riding level.

I got my wife the LF Angel which is based on the Trip. She and most anyone that rides it really likes it.

I also hear good things about the QTM by Ronix.

Got my daughter an angel too. Loves it, as have others who rode it, alas it isn't just pretty, it's sparkly too.

My wife didn't want a "girly" board either. She bought a Liquid Force Trip. It got solid reviews and seemed a good fit for her (more beginner) but that could grow with it also. But mostly she really liked the graphics - very colorful.

I haven't ridden it so can't comment on the ride.

She's also pretty small - 5'0" and 120. She's got the 134. It also works for kids/smaller teens who we have on the boat.

Thanks for the info I'll look into that one. I was thinking a 132 or 134, she rides my 140 right now but that's to big and the size 13 bindings with her womens size 6, it was just to get her up once before winterizing the boat.

Where in WI, we can get her in the daughter's 138 if you're in Madison.

I'd go a bit smaller. I'm 180# and ride a 135. I see lots of people riding bigger boards than they need. Most pros weight more than me and ride a 135-138. I have a 141 for my bigger buddies and a 128 for girls. Just my 0.02.

I'm from Sheboygan, but I'm in Denver most of the time, thanks for the offer tho!! I'm hoping the trailer work I have planned for winter will let me pull the boat from Denver to the north woods of Wisconsin next year for some camping!

I was thinking betweeny 128 and a 132 should be good for her

I also have my eye out for wakeskis, not the short ones like trick skis that I see advertised now.

The 134 Angel would work nice for her.

For reference, one of my boys weighs about 145 and rides a 134, but he also rides at 22 - 23 mph.
