New board help
 
I just picked up a 2006 supra launch. I will be doing a lot of boat riding this year. I am considering 2 boards the 2013 Ronix District Wakeboard or 2013 LF Watson hybrid. I also need some bindings, but have a size 12 foot. Do I go with open toe up to 12 or the 12 - 15 size with the risk of them being too big? With board recommendation I would be interested in binding rec as well. Thanks wakeworld community!

Go to your local shop and try some on. Evo has some bindings discounted in their outlet. From my experience both Ronix and LF fit pretty true to size. Evo has a good exchange policy too just in case they don't fit to your liking.

Will you be riding just behind the boat? If so, then you don't really want the hybrid. It adds un nessisary weight. The Watson is a great board and is highly regarded. It is a very smooth ride and has great pop.

Pfcpetey, I have a 2012Watson hybrid I can sell at 50% off retail. Brand new and still in the plastic. I can also get you into some 2014 Domain Bindings as well for a little discount. Shoot me an email to mike@n3boatworks.com We have tons of closeout product to move. Huge discounts.

If you are looking at the Ronix District we can do the District board with District boots that are size 10.5-14.5 . So being a size 12 yourself you would fall right in the middle of that binding gap. We can do that setup for $360.

If you would prefer the Watson Hybird, we have a 143 on sale for $320 and can find some bindings you like to go with it as well.

and if your boat hasnt left Sacramento yet might even be able to ship it in the boat, but either way anything over $100 is free shipping.

This is not true. I have a shane hybrid and a ss lyman and they both weigh close to the same. I can't tell the difference when I pick them up. Both are the lightest boards I have felt.

Dezul, you are spot on my friend. I was like what that's not true and to test my knowledge and to make sure I wasn't wrong I went and grabbed both and weighed them on our shops UPS weight scanner.... Hybrid 1/2 a pound lighter than the regular watson.... so sorry awakewilson but you are wrong buddy.
Anyways Pfcpetey, good luck in your search and if you need something shoot me an email or give me a call @(317)845-WAKE
