Information about Wakeboards

WAKEBOARDS

 

Wakeboarding has grown in popularity of the years and in turn so have the shapes and styles of the boards.  With such a varied range of designs there is definitely going to be one or more boards out there to suit your needs.

 

Wakeboards are designed a little like a snowboard crossed with a surfboard. They will usually have multiple fin options and channeling in the bottom of the board to give grip and stability and boots to give you control and support while riding. What changes in these boards and boots as they progress upwards in the range is the material and features found in the construction. These construction and feature changes allow you find a board to suit not only your needs while riding but also for different environments (e.g. Behind the boat, at the cable park or even a little of both).

 

The boots have also progressed in shape and style over the years. They have moved away from overlapping rubber straps to designs that fit, feel and even look like normal shoes. Just like shoes the fit and feel can differ greatly between brand giving you the chance to find a boot to fit and form around your foot shape for maximum comfort and control.

 

When choosing a wakeboard its best to size one up with your weight or the weights of those who will be riding the board.
