Best kids wakeboard?

We have a 10-year old girl and an 8-year old boy. What size wakeboard is recommended?

What brands/models are proven winners for kids (beginner to intermediate)?

Thanks,
EA

Thanks for the feedback.

Looks like 109cm is the smallest board out there?

The snowboards we have for our kids is probably a good guide: 110cm for our 8 yr old boy; and 120cm for our 10 yr old girl.

We have a Liquid Force Trip. 128. My son (10) rode it most of last year then switched to my board Hyperlite (136). My daughter (8) rode the Trip all year.

Most of the "which board to ride" decisions have been based on the bindings. My son doesn't jam his foot into the bindings the way I do so he choses to ride my board that is easy to put on and take off.

83 was a great year! Teach them the basics and they will rock everything!

lol..had to chime in...wake boarding cool but you still can't beat the rush of slalom acceleration. from 36 mph to 70 mph in a couple of seconds... love the physics of the pendulum....

-V- Just bought that same board set for my daughter from evo in the outlet. Had a coupon code for 30% off that price. Then bought a cwb blackjack surf board for the same deal from them a few days later!
