Wake Board Sizing

Okay I just bought my girlfriend a Ronix krush board for her birthday. She just learned to start riding and really loves it and is dying for a new board since she rode my sister in laws this past weekend.

Ronix has 2 sized for this board, the 128 that is up to 160 lbs and the 134 which is 175 and up....

I bought the 134 since my sister in laws was the 134 but its a liquid force which their size scale is different. is getting to big a board bad? Shes about 135-145 I'd assume...

I've found that for newer riders bigger is better and if your ever on the edge go bigger. Typically bigger is more forgiving.

Kind of what I was thinking, that it would be more forgiving. She's only wakeboarded like 5 times since she learned off the boom.. Picked it up quick, within and hour learned on the boom and behind the boat... Rides very well actually...

I agree, if you're on the edge, a size up on your board is better. I just bought a LF Witness, and because it didn't come in the exact size as my old board, I went up 2 cm, and I actually like it much better.

I think you did the right thing especially for a beginner. I guess the other question is do you really ever see her progressing that far? My girl rides an older gator board and its a size too big. Shes 100 lbs so outside of a kids board it was the best bet. She loves the stability. We have another girl on the boat every weekend who rides a krush and loves it btw

I don't see her progressing enough to out ride this board during its life span. Maybe after next summer she could be ready for a more accurate size board. This will be good for the time being and give her enough time to learn the functions of the board a little better.

I wouldn't tell her the size is based on weight and you got her the 175 lb board...

Unless she is really really small then 134 should be good. I had a conversation with Shaun Murray about board sizing when I met him and he stated that the industry sizing is way off. Almost all pros ride boards that would be considered too big for them. Dean Smith is pretty small, but rides a 143. You want to ride the biggest board you feel comfortable on. Scott Stewart is also a little guy that rides a 142.

My wife is about 20lbs smaller than your GF and she rides a 134. I think she will be just fine.

I think Taylor should reevaluate her weight. She's prolly 10-15# less than the number he gave. I hope to god she's not lurking this thread.


Sorry Tay I'm prolly gunna have to cut the bday party short. Got my sisters wedding shower thing same day or evening. Heck her wedding party thing, I don't know what it's called, but I must attend. I'm going to open the invitation today that my mom keeps hounding me about and read the time the deal starts. I still wanna be in on the board trickery scam you are pulling to surprise her.
