Comfortable Wakeboard Bindings? HELP!!!

Last year I bought a Hyperlite wakeboard and binding package from Wakeside.com. The Hyperlite Spin bindings that I have make my feet feel like they are in a vise. They ache after about 5 minutes and yes they are the right size according to my shoe size. I am a 43 year old beginner and I know I won't improve unless I give my feet some relief!!! Any recommendations for comfortable bindings???

I am a 44 year old beginner so I truly feel your pain! I, however, got some very comfortable boots this past fall, and I think they are Hyperlite Byerly's. Use a cable "boa" system to tighten the boot. Tons of support and extremely comfortable. Wish I could find snow ski boots like this! Best of luck!

How did you size the bindings in relation to your shoe size? Did you go the same size or larger?

The size is M/L for the bindings. My foot size is 9-9.5. If anything, these bindings may be a tad large, but with the boa system, you can make them as snug as you want.

We have Parks Bindings, but I wear size 11 and my kid is a 12 and half. I am comfey but alittle snug for the kid. The bindings are sized upto 13 I think.

I have the Liquid force Alpha that are great. You might be able to find some 2005 at a great price at the boat shows or online.

I've got a 10.5 shoe size and use the Large Hyperlite Murray. It too has the 'boa' system so you can custom adjust for just the right feel. I could ride all day - they are very comfortable. The down side is they are a high end binding with a price to match...since many manufacturers come out with a 'new and improved' model each year hopefully you could find the '05 model at a good price. Have fun and good luck in your quest.

Thanks for the input. I think I am leaning towards the Byerly's. I have found 2005 models for less than $175.00 delivered.

I have ridden in Hyperlite Spin, Liquid Force Exo Suc and Liquid Force Ultra Sucs. The Liquid Force bindings are way more confortable and secure than the Hyperlite Spins. The Exo Sucs feature a rear lace as opposed to the front lace system used in the HL Spins: it is much more sturdy and fitting to your foot.
