I'm using my dads profile, im 11 and looking to try wakeskating. I weigh 85 pounds. I was hoping someone could give me ideas about good boards to start with and where to find good deals.

Well I always recommend boards from NewWakeskates.com I think the mini would be a great choice their site is currently under construction while they redo it but you can check it out here -----> <a href="https://generalstore.wakeoutlaws.com/itemdetail.php?item_id=IQ1185473325I46a8e32dc2fcd" target="_blank">https://generalstore.wakeoutlaws.com/itemdetail.php?item_id=IQ1185473325I46a8e32dc2fcd</a>

ok thanks

check out sattelyte wakeskates. their smallest board would be perfect for you now and you could use it for years to come

ndh2o 07-22-2008 7:11 AM

Right on Oliver, Sattelyte is the way to go.

lovin_the_wake 07-22-2008 7:15 AM

Sattelyte makes a sick board but I wouldn't suggest spending $230-$300 on your first board what if you decide you don't like it ? You can get the New Mini for $90

chetmaherwakecom 07-22-2008 7:39 AM

I have a sattelyte ill sell you for cheep

lovin_the_wake 07-22-2008 9:29 AM

which one is it ?

hemihauler 07-22-2008 11:03 AM

hey chet, what year and model is your sattelyte, and how much for it.

hemihauler 07-22-2008 11:11 AM

i'm looking at the 2006, 2007, and the 2008, hyperlite scape wakeskates and i was wondering if those would be good for me. I was also wondering if it would be hard for me to ride the sattelyte because it has no fins and if a board with fins would be easier.

chetmaherwakecom 07-22-2008 11:33 AM

Its the heartbreaker and i just wanted to get 140 and whatever it costs to ship

chetmaherwakecom 07-22-2008 11:34 AM

oo and i got the fins for it

lovin_the_wake 07-22-2008 12:23 PM

Dude I'd jump on that Sattelyte $140 is a good deal for any Sattelyte they're solid boards

hemihauler 07-22-2008 12:46 PM

thats a good deal but i dont have the much money

lovin_the_wake 07-22-2008 1:13 PM

$90 for the mini is a killer deal imo. The Mini is the exact same shape as the Mogley which is what I ride and I absolutely love that board

lovin_the_wake 07-22-2008 1:27 PM

go to a local shop and see if you can demo some boards

hemihauler 07-22-2008 2:36 PM

ok thanks

THE CATALYST IS GOOD<IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

wakemitch 07-25-2008 11:26 AM

the new mini would be the best choice for someone that young/little. <BR> <BR>Jessica, the catalyst is too big for most grown men let alone an 11 year old.

azpowerhouse 07-25-2008 9:43 PM

I disagree. Depends on weight. The small catalyist might work and you can get them cheap on boardersbestbuy every so often.

wakekid72501 07-26-2008 6:20 PM

the hyperlite scape is a good board. i have ridden one before and i liked it a lot. i have the '07 Liquid Force Faction 42 it is pretty nice as well but probably too big for you

hemihauler 07-27-2008 12:00 PM

but would the scape be good for me?

wakemitch 07-27-2008 12:08 PM

Rob, the smallest scape (107) is over 42" and you should go with 40" or smaller. 36-38" would be best for you.

lovin_the_wake 07-27-2008 3:45 PM

I still think the New Mini is the way to go <BR> <BR>I think this 40" 484 is still for sale -----> <a href="http://www.wakeskating.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21563" target="_blank">http://www.wakeskating.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21563</a>
