Got a couple of donut type things last year from www.boatworld.co.uk

Good service and had quite a range of other bits that emptied my wallet ! - Infaltable fenders / de-salt fluid etc. You'll want to also get a suitable toys tow line plus a 12v inflator and deflator

Used a flat ring cover donut (Buster) for the kids (8 & 6yrs) but a little too bumpy for them on the sea as they got bounced in the air off the deck of the donut too easily. Also got a "Racer 30" which can be more 'sat in' for a gentler ride if required and that was better for them on the sea but it is quite big & heavy to manhandle once wet as it doesn't drain the water out as easily as the donut.

A wakeboard will be as much again for the bindings - you'll need to try some on I think - my first set of bindings struggled with size 10 feet and the velcro wrap over one size fits all set I replaced them with just don't feel as secure though !

I Looked at that. I thought E bay was supposed to be cheap though. He's charging dealer prices.

I've got my eyes on a cheap wakeboard which should do my son and his friends. I'll post my results if the deal comes off.

Would like to know if theres some sort of attachment to fit one to the A Frame though.

He IS a dealer. To be honest you often pay less for new than you do s/h these days!!!
