Hello everyone, I'm new here and new to wakeboarding. This past summer was my first summer and it took me several tries to get up on my husbands board, LOL, but anyway after I finally got the hang of it WOW, I love it. All summer I used my husbands 141 O'Brien Diesal and now I want to buy my own board. I am pretty tall, 5'10" 160 Ibs so should I probably get a longer board? I was thinking of the Liquid Force Diva 139, the Gator Lexy 137 or the O'Brein Vixen 137, any suggestions would be much appreciated. The last day that we rode last year, September 30th 07, I had a bit of an accident and the board popped me in the head so I am a little nervous but ready for warm weather so that I can get back out there. I have posted a picture of me after the accident<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/195511/547125.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/195511/547126.jpg" alt="Upload">

Nice battle wound. OUCH! Get a REALLY small board so theres no chance of THAT happening again. I'm kidding. Did your foot come out? <BR>Anyway, the 3 boards your looking at are all nice.

Get a helmet too.

Yes, my left foot came out and bam!!!:-) Anyway I had thought about getting an inflatable board but haven't had any luck locating one of those........;-)}

Those 3 are good boards, I really like the LF Diva though, this year they've changed the shape to the one of the Omega and it's a great beginner friendly board that will grow in skill with you. Get some nice bindings so that your feet won't come out next time! I have the LF transits which I love, but if you want to go with a girl model, the LF Minx are also very supportive and comfy

Hi Cris, I have ordered a the LF Diva, I got a good deal on an 07' model so I hope I like it, it comes with Fusion bindings. I will be excited to get back on the water!!!
