Wakeboarding is a lifestyle for me and has been for a long time. Based on my job and income a new 2019 23LSV probably doesn't make much sense, but it is our thing. We don't really have time for other...

I'm 38 and I am the type of guy that will always wakeboard. I've been doing it for 25+ years so my riding has already gone through several evolutions, but life and injury hasn't kept me from...

Flex is a great option for fun on the water. I'll take my cable board out for a rip when my body is shot.

Take the camber boards off the list--especially as an older rider. Even people I know that liked them for a while are happy to switch back to regular rocker lines.

Go District, Parks or RXT. Those are super friendly platforms. Even if you go with the One shape the extra $100 will be wasted for the TB unless you really prefer the graphics.

Tyler--Best Boat
Felix--Best park/winch
Gunter--Best overall

Tyler's section was my favorite to watch personally, but if I take an objective approach, Gunter wins.

I like teaching the FS first. You can build off the foundation of a good FS 180. BS 180s are harder than a FS or BS 360 for most people.
