How to Pick the Best Wakeboard

There are few things in life that are truly “one size fits all,” and wakeboards certainly aren’t one of those things. A common misconception is that you can just hop on a buddy’s board and start shredding. Well that just isn’t the case! If you want to learn how to wakeboard, then the right wakeboard is essential. Here are several tips on choosing the best wakeboard:

 

  1. Bindings are Important

 

We’ve seen too many people come in looking at wakeboards, and they completely ignore the bindings in their purchase decision. This is a huge mistake! Bindings are created for comfort and protection against injury, making them a crucial part of the wakeboarding experience. Look for bindings that are snug, but comfortable.

 

  1. Consider the Rocker

 

A wakeboard’s “rocker” is how much bend the board has, and it is either consider “continuous” or “3-stage.” If you’re just beginning the sport of wakeboarding, then a continuous rocker will be best for you, providing smooth transitions on the water. On the other hand, if you’re looking to get more aggressive with your jumps, then a 3-stage rocker will give you more lift and pop.

 

  1. Get the Right Size

 

Do not try to use a board that is the wrong size for your height/weight! A board that is too small will fly underneath you, creating a lack of control; a board that is too big will feel clunky and difficult to maneuver. Check with your pro shop on the appropriate size for your height/weight.

 

  1. Fiberglass vs. Wood

 

Fiberglass and wood are the two most popular core elements of a wakeboard, and each has its perks. A fiberglass board – the most popular option – is durable and lighter, while a wood core board will give the rider additional pop off the wake for more advanced tricks.

 

  1. Always Try it First

 

Check with your local pro shop – like Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas – to see if you can borrow or rent gear before buying it. This helps get a feel for the best wakeboard for you and your skill level, without committing to something you don’t love.

Selling Your Boat? How to Make the Most Money on the Sale

Have your eye on a brand new boat for the 2019 boating season? Well let’s get your boat ready to sell then! There are certain things you can do to make the most money on the sale of a boat, and Buxton Marine is here with tips on selling your boat the right way:

 

  1. Deep Cleaning is a Must

 

Think about it from a buyer’s perspective. If they open compartments (and they will) that have standing water, mold, dirt, mildew, etc., then they’re going to question how well the boat has been maintained. Bring the boat into Buxton Marine for a deep clean and maintenance to get everything in like-new condition before selling your boat.

 

  1. Record all Maintenance

 

Speaking of maintenance, now is the time to dig up all of your maintenance records and have them neatly in a file for the prospective buyer. Detailed logs of maintenance shows that you are a boat owner who cares about impeccable quality. Even if you have maintained your boat regularly, it’s a good idea to go ahead and get it serviced with our Buxton Marine service department to ensure all parts are in excellent working order.

  1. Boat Staging

 

Staging isn’t just for houses – it’s for boats too! If you’re selling a boat, you’ll want to show it in the best light possible in order to get top dollar. While your deep cleaning the boat, take all the contents out and then only put things back in that you’ll sell with the boat. Organize and stage those items so that everything looks pristine. Prospective buyers will notice.

 

  1. Trailer Condition Matters Too!

 

Don’t forget about the trailer! If your trailer is looking a little worn, it’s time to repaint, repair chipped paint, remove rust, get new tires, etc. to make that trailer shine as well.

 

After you’ve sold your current boat, visit us at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas and let us show you the latest 2019 Nautique models, along with gorgeous pre-owned models from Malibu, Mastercraft, Supre, Tige, and more. There’s a reason our customers come back again and again to Buxton Marine of Lewisville!

Don’t Miss the Dallas Boat Expo: Feb. 2-4 and 8-11!

If you’ve even considered buying a boat this spring or summer, then do yourself a favor and visit Buxton Marine at the Dallas Boat Expo – Feb. 2-4 and Feb 8-11!

 

The Dallas Boat Expo is a great chance to see many of our top Nautique models up close and personal. You’ll have a chance to walk the boats, see the features, and talk with our knowledgeable sales staff. Here are a few questions we’d recommend asking as you walk around and visit with the various vendors at the Dallas Boat Show:

How is the Boat Constructed?

Nautique stands behind each of its boats and the quality craftsmanship that goes into each and every model built. Be sure to ask questions about the construction of the boat, with particular focus on the hull. Asking each manufacturer these same questions should help distinguish the best boats on the market.

 

How Does the Ballast Work?

Planning to do a lot of watersports with your brand new boat? Then be sure to ask about the ballasts. Nautique boats produce amazing waves with our factory ballast and nothing more, but other models require additional ballasts, special operating instructions, etc.

 

Which Watersports is the Boat Best For?

Before attending the Dallas Boat Expo, think about how you plan to use the boat. Wakesurfing? Wakeboarding? Tubing? Skiing? While we can’t speak for every manufacturer, we can say that Nautique puts lots of thought into each model, and each model is perfectly designed with different sporting needs in mind. Talk to our sales staff to understand which model would be right for you!

 

Where is the Storage?

While usually an after thought, storage in your new wakesurf, wakeboard, or ski boat is important! Think about what toys you’ll be on the lake with and where to store them. Look for roomy compartments and hidden storage that maximizes the space in the boat design.

 

These are just a few of the important questions to ask as you make the rounds at the Dallas Boat Expo! Be sure to come see us at our Buxton Marine booth. We are proud to be the best boat dealer in Dallas, Texas!

Nautique Helm Command Controller

Nautique provides options when it comes to controlling the boat the way YOU want.

That’s why Nautique has placed a Nautique Helm Command Controller directly to the right of the drivers seat, providing another easy access way to control everything within your LINC Panoray System.

 

Intuitive Display with Everything at your Fingertips

Every setting on your 2017 Nautique boat – from the ballast to the speed – can be controlled on your LINC Panoray. The speedometer is central on the screen – allowing you to make adjustments in seconds – and every other setting can be fine tuned for wakesurfing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, and so much more!
