What Do I Look for in a Beginner Wakeboard? – Buxton Marine Lewisville

You’ve got the boat – now it’s time to buy the gear! Here are a few tips from Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas on what to look for in a beginner wakeboard:

Length & Width

Let’s start here. If you’re a beginner, then in general, you’ll want to look for a board that’s a little oversized for your height and weight because it will be easier to maneuver on. This guide is a great start to assess the right length/width for you. 

Single or Twin Tip?

If you’re a beginner, look for a board that has a twin tip. This allows you to maneuver more easily in multiple directions – not just one.


As you would guess, the fins allow you to steer the board. If you’re a beginner, this is a helpful feature! Look for longer and deeper fins to maximize maneuverability. You can also buy boards with removable fins that will allow you to use them when you begin, but then remove them as you advance in the sport.


When it comes to wakeboards, the rocker applies to how curved the bottom of the board is. The more rocker it has, the better the board is at performing more advanced tricks and stunts. If you’re a beginner, you’ll want a board with a continuous rocker that smoothly transitions from flat to curved and makes your ride more forgiving.


The edge of the board matters when it comes to speed, acceleration, and ease on the water. Many advanced boards have sharp edges, but if you’re a beginner, look for rounded edges that leave room for error as you learn to steer the board.
