    Anybody know anything about WakeBoarding?

    Looking to learn how to Wakeboard this summer.

    I was looking on Ebay and didn't really know where to start to find a Wakeboard.

    How long should it be? I wear size 14 shoe, what size boot do I need? Anything else I need to know?

    Thanks guys

    Your weight plays into the length of your board.

    By rough measurements-- board should be close to chin level.

    me and my roommate just got a wake board and kinda went through what you are going through. one thing we learned the hard way is that alot of the advanced boards come with the boots and they dont let the beginner who may fall alot slip out of them very easy. one of my buddies jsut this past weekend was attemtping to wakeboard with our board and one of the times he fell the board got caught wrong and twisted his ankles pretty bad. jsut my .02. see if you can read on them anywear about the boots versus just straps. Good Luck!

    Always lube your boots with dishwashing detergent!! It's a must, if you like walking

    yeah I've never been wakeboarding before, but it looks like it is pretty cool just wanted to try it out this summer to see if I could do it or not.

    I might just have to find a store around there that sells them and get somebody who works there to run everything down to me.
