My boyfriend is an experienced wakeboarder and seems to have everything. I am looking for a birthday gift that he doesnt have. And lets face it, if id doesnt have anything to do with wakeboarding then he doesnt want it!

replace something he already has rope/vest/handle. or new board/bindings if you rock. <BR> <BR>New wake DVDs are always good. maybe something for the boat.

jarrod 01-16-2008 10:52 AM

What kind of gear does he use? CWB? Hyperlite? LF? I'm thinking clothing. <BR> <BR>How about 1 day with an instructor? <BR> <BR>A wakeboarding vacation?

So many possibilities: <BR> <BR>vest <BR>board <BR>bindings <BR>rope <BR>handle <BR>board shorts <BR>reef fannings (or other sandles) <BR>wakeskate <BR>skate shoes <BR>lube (for bindings...LOL) <BR>helmet (if he is hitting sliders) <BR>trip to a camp/cable park <BR>mag subscription(s) <BR>DVD's (cough::Transgression::cough) <BR>Gift Certificate so he can pick exactly what he needs <BR>I have seen some wakeboard jewelry before <BR>wakeboard bench <BR>wakeboard clock <BR>wakeboard neon sign (that would be COOL!!!) <BR> <BR>I am just scratching the surface here....

I think that he would love a new board. He is 6'4" 230lbs...Any suggestions...He is an advanced rider!

sidekicknicholas 01-16-2008 11:12 AM

144 ibex

absoluteboarder 01-16-2008 11:24 AM

......def......a new board is the most exciting new thing you could get him!........cwb Marius 140 platinum. Depends how much you like him and the money you want to spend.

polarbill 01-16-2008 11:30 AM

Do you have any idea what wakeboard he rides currently? This might be able to get us a better idea of what style board he likes. If you don't know what board he has I would second Nick's recommendation. If he doesn't like a 3-stage rocker board he can exchange it for a Covin, Frontier or Mana.

jsc1010 01-16-2008 11:32 AM

This sounds funny I guess... but money isnt a factor...I just want him to like it!

roughrivermike 01-16-2008 11:40 AM

money not a factor......Xstar!

denverd1 01-16-2008 11:44 AM

ibex/marius would prolly make a big splash. some new bindings are definitely a hit. <BR> <BR>LTR - find out what his current ride is. board and length. and what boots are on it. snap a pic if you want, we'll help.

timmy 01-16-2008 11:47 AM

do you have a sister?

jsc1010 01-16-2008 11:48 AM

Ha, yes I do!

jsc1010 01-16-2008 11:52 AM

He currently has a CWB Sol and a O'brien but I am not sure what kind. Oh and they are 141. <BR>I think that he likes the Sol better. <BR> <BR>You guys are great! Thanks for the help!

bwillx2 01-16-2008 11:55 AM

He rides a 141 and weighs 230, a guy on your other post says you should try a 140 and you only weigh 160. Something sounds kinda funny there!!! But everyone has ther opinion I guess.

bwillx2 01-16-2008 11:55 AM

Good luck with the Gift!!!

jsc1010 01-16-2008 11:57 AM

Yeah I thought that was funny!

jarrod 01-16-2008 12:06 PM

If he is riding a Sol and likes it, you might consider a board ugrade that still rides somewhat similar. <BR> <BR>A CWB Kink, Pure, or on the high end....a Transcend wouldn't be completely different from what he is used to. <BR> <BR>Or you could alway throw a pair of new Zeus bindings on there.

absoluteboarder 01-16-2008 12:08 PM

......Wow you can def. upgrade his wakeboard and prob. his bindings too then......so if he likes cwb go with <BR>the top of the line cwb 140 marius like I mentioned earlier and match with zeus bindings.....or a nice pair of open toe liquid force watsons (cant say enough about how comfy those bindings are)

polarbill 01-16-2008 12:11 PM

I would go with the Mana 142 then. <BR> <BR><a href="http://wakeworld.com/boardguide/getboard9.asp?ProductID=3906" target="_blank">http://wakeworld.com/boardguide/getboard9.asp?ProductID=3906</a>

Gator Legend 145...... check it out....

lovin_the_wake 01-17-2008 11:29 AM

I 2nd the Zeus bindings or you could get the Answers for a little less $$$

lovin_the_wake 01-17-2008 11:31 AM

Does he Wakeskate too ? A wakeskate and some shoes would be pretty cool imo . . . .
