What Wakeboard?

Hi folks, looking for some help in buying my first wakeboard...

Was fortunate enough last week that I got a shot of Craig_C's board... no idea what make or size it was tho!

Got a background of waterskiing in the summer and snowboarding in the winter so im looking for something that isnt purely for the beginner and will last me longer as i become an intermediate user.

Any help and suggestions are appreciated...

Cheers.

We have been selling Quicksilver (Mercury brand) and Jobe wakeboards for three years now and people seems like the Jobe more, I haven“t tried out myself but Marķa Erla my daughter prefers Jobe.

I have a freemotion board with jobe bindings which I got at the boatshow as an ex demo board at a proper knock down price. If you can wait that long, its worth looking there although southampton is a little far for you!

I don't know alot about boards but good manufactures are:

Liquid force
freemotion (made by liquid force i think)
O'brien
Jobe
Hyperlite
and loads more

I would avoid cheapo "basic" packages with bungie bindings...go for something wide with nice boot binders and make sure they fit before buying!

Hope that helps.

Tim
