Do your homework. Pick three wakeboards that you think may fit your ability and style. From there, your local shop can help narrow down the search. Remember, you get what you pay for. In no way are we saying you have to buy the most expensive board on the market. Buying a wakeboard that fits you perfectly is the key and will show when you hit the water. A board and boots that fit your entire posse are nice to have, but if you’re looking for high performance, get a board that fits you specifically. Your friends will just have to deal with it or go out and get their own, which is what we recommend. You don’t all go to the skate park or mountain and share the same board, right?
