Ive been wakeboarding for a while now and sall wakeskate and thought it looked awsome. I noticed boards have sizes 39-43 i just want to know how to buy the right size for me.

i posted this in another thread a few days ago about wakeskate sizing... <BR> <BR>"size isnt as important with skates as it is with boards. the big reason for board sizing is because you wanna get as much pop as you can out of a board, and with wakeskating many people dont even jump, you wont see much of a difference. some of the pros ride 39" while some ride 42." i dont honestly think you will see a difference in board size. you might see a difference in board SHAPE, though. that's why there are different manufacturers." <BR> <BR>if you have any other questions feel free to ask.

What are the major differences in wakeskate design? I'm trying to figure out what kind to get, and I'm deciding between Liquid Force or Hyperlite, also, I don't know the differences between the cassettes.

Im gonna get a liquid force but thats because i have a low budget. I here cassett is the best because they focus only on wakeskate unlike hyperlite and liquid force who also make wakeboards.

I would definitly go with the CONCAVE over a FLAT. I feel like a concave gives you a better feel on the board, and to me, seems more responsive because of the cupped shape.

Ok i got my first question awnsered but heres the second. What does a board size mean when its in the hundreds like a 107 for example
