First Try at Boarding

Yeah, I am sure there is a thread for this somewhere but I don't feel like looking for it. This weekend my daughter decided she wanted to wakeboard. This is her very first attempt. I am now looking at what to order for her. She loved it.

What's her height and weight? Get her a board to fits her size well and that has forgiving (read round not sharp) edges. If you watch ebay you can get great deals on girls wakeboard equipment. Last year I got my wife a pro model board and pro model bindings new for under $200. She was new to it too so I got her a liquid force luna with O'brien Dallas Friday boots. Almost all the girls boards are pretty forgiving though so just make sure you get her on a size that is good for her. Also, get boots that are new enough that they are NOT rubber. The newer boots are so much better and easier to get in and out of. You can usually find girls boots that are 2 or 3 model years old but still brand new for very cheap.

Awesome, Corey gave great advice on equipment. If she is just getting started try to fond someone that can help her learn the basics correctly. It will save you a lot of gas and make things easier on her in the long run.

Buy the detention 2012 DVD. Shaun Murray is great at explaining the how and why and being entertaining at the same time.

Corey is still spot on. My kids love the detention video as well.

You probably want to be between 128-133cm long on the board then. When you look up boards they usually give you a weight range or max though.

I was told by many to get the Hyperlite State board for my kids, it works very well for them. I would suggest that one for your daughter.

I paid $339 at Scheels

Great pic also
