Wakeboard advice
I am looking for a wakeboard for my son. I am not sure what to get. There are so many to choose from. He is 12 years old, 115 pounds 5' tall. We have a 2012 X2. I went to the local pro shop and they showed me a $650.00 set up. Seemed a little pricey for someone just learning. This will be his first time wakeboarding. Anyone in Northern, Ca want to sell their old board? I am in Brentwood, CA. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks everyone.

Take a look at the closeout section on evo.com
They've got some good deals going.

I think that might be too small of a board.

I have a '10 Marius 134 my wife used to ride she is 5'3 115~120 ish. That size might work better for him and he could grow into it.

perhaps you've heard of a list on the internet prepared by a gentleman named craig? I'd speculate that there are many many used boards in the 130-135 range for sale on his list.

Louis, there are a few good shops in the bay area that will be worth checking out that should set him up right while keeping you in your budget.

dont go to a new shop and buy a board... he will out grow it fast... i would take a look at the list shawndoggy mentioned above. i have bought and sold many a board on there. for much under retail value.. also check out dealadaywake.com great site.

Craigslist or eBay. When he outgrows the setup, just sell it to someone else.
