Best place to buy a wakeboard
Took an edge catch on a raley over the weekend, luckily as bad as it could go I came out fine, but I had pulled out one of the inserts on my S4 and my warranty just expired in February

So i'm in the market for a new board I love the S4 shape, but open to try out some new ones. Any shapes out there I gotta try?

I looked over evo, buywake, wakeside, and some others looking for a good deal on an outlet board, but nothing jumped out at me. What are some of your go to places when looking for a board? I know a lot of you recommend the local proshop and normally I'm all on board for that but down here in Houston we only have m2 and I personally think they are over priced with low selection

sign up for buywake.com's mailing. they'll send out emails about 25%, 15%, etc off.

Boardstop.com gets you 10% off with the code "forumuser"

+1 on Performance Ski & Surf...great people

I would chose a local shop. The next time you tear an insert, it will be a lot easier to walk in to a shop to handle your warranty. Support your local shop if you want it to be there in the future. It's not worth saving $30.00.

Performance Ski is where i get most of my stuff

Are there any good shops left around the Rocklin Roseville area

CRS_mi 07-11-2013 4:43 PM

Their selection is really limited but sierratradingpost.com has really good deals. You see the sale price when you bring the boards up and then when you click on one the next page will give you an extra discount code usually between 20 and 30 %.

Peter.....I think your best bet is Larson or NorCal MC in Rancho Cordova. And Wake Island has a pro shop now also.
I know NorCal has older models they discount. And they are pretty involved in the grassroots scene

+1 for evo.com. Good prices and great customer service. I would love to support local but don't have a shop close by.

jarrod 07-12-2013 6:38 AM

+1 for Wakeroots proshop at NorCal Mastercraft in Rancho. It's a real boardshop. They always have sweet deals on clearance stuff and all of the new stuff as well. They also carry Rockwell Watches, VZ, Spy, Oakley, and a lot of other cool stuff. They are one of those shops that will usually have you walking out with a new board on a warranty issue.

^ my brother ordered a Bill from there and we received and empty box with 2 ronix plastic bags in it....

But a shop is important. I drive 2 hours for a good shop. I ride with them a lot, I'm going to surf expo with them etc. they help me out on prices and warranty is cake. I've made some good friends thru that shop beyond the support I get from on the product side of things. Loyalty goes a long way. My entire crew rides and buys from there. They all know us by name, it's like the familia. If you don't buy from a shop you're missing out. If you however absolutely have none or yours is bad I vote for Evo gear.

Fortunately... www.perfski.com is our closest shop:) also sponsor of most of the pros down here

countryguy1717 07-12-2013 6:21 PM

+1 for EVO if you sign up they also have great discounts. Especially their outlet boards. Other than that cl...

I'm a bit biased, but wakeboards.com is an awesome online retailer, and have great in-shop staff! Call up for any questions and recommendations! Plus they've got a pretty handsome pro shop staff :D

hillbilly 07-14-2013 12:11 AM

I think there is a "Ground Zero" in Roseville that I heard is having pretty good deals also....

kyle_L 07-14-2013 1:24 AM

performance, been going there for 13+ years and wouldn't get gear anywhere else

chillinoj 07-22-2013 9:54 AM

Thanks for all the replies guys, I'm glad i have a few more places to keep shopping around at

behindtheboat 07-23-2013 8:22 AM

Since you're in Houston, M2 is a good shop and supports the local scene......

EVO people, really? Most local shops will meet or beat their prices, get out and support before they're all gone. And if you don't have one near you, support the nearest, or an actual shop like Performance.
