Most models have a length that will suit you. Something in the 142 to 146 range should work. Keep in mind width and rocker as well.

how do i know if "width and rocker" are sutable for me? I have been using cheap boards to learn with, and now i am going to start learning to do tricks. As of right now the only thing i can do is get up and go side to side, cutting hard to the sides of the boat.

Most manufacture sites will give a breakdown of each board and size. They typically have a "sizing" chart that will give you a good idea.

Example: XXX wakeboard, size 144, for 175 lbs and up...

For reference, I'm 6'2", 210 and ride a 145 Hyperlite Murray.

I love my ibex.. the edges are really sharp though and I cut my hand just about every time I ride.. nothing bad.. just like a bunch of paper cuts haha. I just wish I'd have bought the relik boots instead of the ones. but oh well. still great all around

I have been using a very cheap hyperlite since I started riding last august. At the begining of this season two of my friends bought their own boards. One is over 6' and 240lbs and he got a 146 ronix one with relik boots, the other guy is about 6' and 180lbs he has a 139 ronix ibex with relik boots. They let me ride their boards whenever I want, but both of them have bigger feet than I do so the boot don't fit me that well. The ibex works great for surface tricks and has great pop and the ronix one is the fastest board I have ridden. I am 5' 10" and 185lbs. So, I went and picked up a 142 ronix one and a set of last years cell boots in my size last week and after 2 days on the lake this weekend I can tell you that I love this board. I have always been able to clear the wakes with good air and do 180's on my heel-side but with this board I end up out in the flats if I cut hard, and I have never been able to clear the wakes on my toe-side until now. This board is going to make a better rider out of me for sure.

my 2 cents, Kevin

I switched from an Absolute Platinum to a Marius Platinum two years ago and love the Marius. Of the six regulars in my crew, four are on Marius, one Transcend, and one Ronix.

I love my HyperLite Marek. The abrupt continuous rocker has great pop. Demo several boards as they all ride different and find one that is the best fit for your riding style.
