PWC's are great for some people's wakeboarding, mainly if you do alot of wakeskating, or alot of sliders, you aren't looking for the ability to track, you're looking for shallow water near your sliders, perhaps in areas where a boat couldn't really turn around.

And as far as the atv's have you ever seen people wakeskating ditches and such.

Or what about locals wakeskating the runoff from dams w/ a line tied to the bridge, that's fun to watch.

Does anybody have one of the new wake boards design for PWC. I looks like a snowboard. Suppose to give more spring or something. Im wondering if that is in the future for all boards

I think Hyperlite makes one.

Here it is http://www.hyperlite.com/06_web/06_index.html

true but your a skier. an older mc is not very family friendly. that cheapy bayliner can seat 7, rides high in the water great for fishing and doesnt use hardly as much gas as an older mc. the older mc will probably out last it though. plus if you have to finance it , its easier to finance the new bayliner than a 20 year old mc.

if it were me , i would obviously choose the older mc, i hate fishing, have no kids and love to ski.

Flexboard looks interesting. Guess it is meant to pull snowboarders to wakeboarding. Isn't explicit, but I read it to say this board can be used for snow or wake boarding? Did I read that right?

No, its wake only. it says to carry the snowboard season through the summer, so it rides like a snowboard using the profile to allow you to set an edge instead of fins.

Seems like a good way to catch an edge.
