I'd agree with you on a budget, but the OP indicated money was not an issue. I find getting in / out of drysuits easier than wetsuits. Wetsuits are definitely more trouble free, require less care,...

I keep seeing images of that swinging back with nobody on it and catching a 3 year old square in the teeth... I love that thing for adults or older kids, but be careful if youngsters come by.

My recommendation is get a heater top and a drysuit. The heater top will take you well into November. From there you can wear the drysuit - at first with minimal insulation underneath. Later you...

It's all relative to what you're doing. A single axle trailer for a 3K# boat is probably great for short hauls, but I'd prefer a dual axle if I were going to tow it across country. If you get a...

Often get new trailers? Sometime but it's not common. Some boats don't come with a trailer like lake communities where the boats are always on lifts and you don't need to pull the boats out for...

There is no wrong answer, just tradeoffs:
- basic neoprene = cheap ($125) and durable, but less comfortable and least insulation
- advanced neoprene = moderate ($200-300) and durable, better...

Totally agree from a long-term perspective. In the short-term, however, it's a big deal. It turns your world upside down for a couple months, severely limits your activity for a couple more. At...

Ask your surgeon why he recommends the patella versus hamstring and the pros/cons of each technique in your case. It's never a bad idea to find a second surgeon to confirm the advice if you don't...

It's very situational and depends on how the seller priced the boat to begin with. There is no offer that should offend the seller if you present it politely, but you want to avoid making an offer...

I would have said this was true until a year ago. I've had several prior Ronix boots that were exactly that - true to size. I year ago I bought a pair of Ronix One boots the same size as my...

The best time of year to buy a boat is geographically dependent. If you're someplace with a bad winter, its difficult to buy a boat until spring as they're all winterized. Sellers aren't in the...

I found my One's (2012 version) to if anything run small and tight. I wear a 9 1/2 or 10 in nearly everything, but my size 10 One's were so snug I often had to cut sets short because my feet were in...

My previous boat was 10' +/- 1" and my current boat is probably about 10'4". In both cases I'm judging based on hitting or grazing the rim on a basketball hoop in my driveway. If I were building a...

Agree, though my experience has been that most people selling wakeboard / wakesurf gear on Craigslist greatly overestimate its worth. They think the fact they paid $400 for the board in 2006 means...

How sure are you the leaks aren't coming from the seals? Seals do age. Many people claim they should be replaced every year even if there are no rips. This keeps the rubber or latex more supple -...

If even 1% of the surfers I see on the lake could do just one trick from that video, we would all have to eat our words when we make fun of wakesurfing as being for fat old guys.
