I am new at wakeboarding and about to get a new board. I was looking at the hyperlite divine 134, any opinions on it? Also, I am 5'3" 135lbs is a 134 good for me?

my wife rides the exact board w/ the pixie bindings... she likes it, but isn't very aggressive either....

it's an easy board to ride, and it's apparently the same board as murray's first molded-in fin design, so you won't hit a wall (so to speak) when you want to progress to more advanced riding like you might with the movement or cruiser (i forget which is hyperlite's base model this year). 134 sounds alright for you, but i'd get some smaller fins than the 1.7 plastic jobs that come standard.

It's a great board. I ride the same one (Motive in profile pic). I think the size if perfect for you. I also ride a 134 (my weight wildly varies 150 - 170lbs), but feel like it's a bit small for me behind the boat. It's perfect on the cable.

My wife rides a 2005 134 Divine and she is the same size. That is the right size for you. She likes it a lot but is selling it right now ($200 with 04' LF Minx bindings or $175 for board alone; new condition). I agree you will want smaller fins once your comfortable on it and want to start trying things. <BR> <BR>It's the same board a Hyperlite Motive with different graphics.
