I am extremely new to wakeboarding (touched my first wakeboard today) but I have seen it done and always wanted to do it. Today my dad brought me home a Liquid Force Omega board, with matching bindings (thats all I know about them). It is 139.3 cm, with a fin in the middle. I am 6'1, 140 pounds, and have snowboarded and skateboarded. Will this board be a good choice?

I agree, the old man did a good job. That board is a lot of fun to ride and super smooth. Enjoy!

How fast do you think I should get pulled? How fast do most riders go? I heard like 30, but I thought that was pretty insane, and dangerous.

kingskrew 08-02-2006 1:09 PM

At least 30, and make sure to take some video. <BR> <BR>-Steve

30?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR>It really depends on your boat and your skill level. I would say more like 18 to 21.

woohoo 08-02-2006 1:16 PM

If you do go 30 though, we get to see pics of those crashes

kingskrew 08-02-2006 1:16 PM

I was just kiddin by the way.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> Jeff's right, 18 to low 20s should work out just fine. <BR> <BR>-Steve

chris_t 08-02-2006 1:17 PM

I thought maybe he was messing with me, because otherwise why would you want video of a first timer. I should probably go slower then that to get up though, right?

innov8 08-02-2006 1:22 PM

Whatever feels good to you Chris, start out at about 18 and as you progress add a little more speed.

iamnathanhudson 08-02-2006 2:00 PM

actually, i prefer 31.7.......lol
