    Question Looking for new wakesurf board

    What recommendation does everyone have for a beginner length wakesurf board? I am 5'10 190lbs.

    I have been looking at this board that is on sale and curious about the length?

    A single fin skim may be a bit squirrelly for a beginner board and probably right at the limit on length for your size.

    I'd suggest going 5' board or larger to start with - any of the entry level Hyperlite Broadcast, Liquid Force, CWB ride, etc. would be a good place to start and then typically end up being a boat board for other riders as you progress and want something better.

    Do some searching on the forum or browse the Wakesurfing section and you'll see A LOT of reviews and recommendations.

    Good luck!

    my vote is for the Hyperlight broadcast board-great beginner board, remove a fin or 2 and you can get a loose riding board, but one of the biggest advantages is that it will fit the factory wakeboard rack slots, everyone can ride it so later down the road it will become the board board.

    The Doum board is a great board for beginners but won't disappoint as you advance. I'd buy it over the Hyperlite, CWB & Ronix boards.

    Really? I never would have guessed that would be a good ride for beginners. Every skim I'm been on has been super squirrely by comparison. But then again I don't have 20+ boards out in my shed like some guys

    The Broadcast is set up for 3 fins and you can remove the two outer ones for a more slippery ride but removing the center one and just using the two shorter outer ones is the setup for some slippery fun.

    I say this as most folks that start with the others soon leave them behind. I figure why not spend about the same that will work for the current need as well as allow for some progression.
