I have been using a friends board since I have been boarding and it's now time for me to buy one. <BR> <BR>I want to buy a board that other people can learn on as well... <BR> <BR>I am 5*4 115lbs....any suggestions?

Congrats on your future board purchase! <BR> <BR>As for size, Id say go with a 134. Its a good size for you and it will be easy for others to learn on it as well (unless they weigh more than 180 lbs!) <BR> <BR>what board were you riding before (model, size and year)? did you like it? what did you like and what didnt you like? <BR> <BR>Based on that I may be able to give you some shape suggestions.

It was a hyperlite and it was way to big for me...it was actually a guys board. but at least i learned on something bigger so maybe ill ride better on a small one!! ha ha.

My wakeboarder instructor recommended this for my new board <BR> <BR>1. Liquid Force <BR>2. Ronix <BR>3. HyperLite <BR> <BR>Good Luck...Most boards you look at will give you specs. Look at your height and weight and you will be able to figure everything else out. 3 Stage rocker is always nice!

I have a three stage rocker. It's a 135 obrien skyla. I am 5'5 and weigh 110. The only thing I don't like about the board is that it gets pretty slippery in choppy water. It's a pretty quick board though. I have been told that a continuous rocker is easier for a beginner though if you want others to learn on your board.
