My boyfriend is an experienced wakeboarder and seems to have everything. I am looking for a birthday gift that he doesnt have. And lets face it, if id doesnt have anything to do with wakeboarding then he doesnt want it!

replace something he already has rope/vest/handle. or new board/bindings if you rock.

New wake DVDs are always good. maybe something for the boat.

What kind of gear does he use? CWB? Hyperlite? LF? I'm thinking clothing.

How about 1 day with an instructor?

A wakeboarding vacation?

So many possibilities:

vest
board
bindings
rope
handle
board shorts
reef fannings (or other sandles)
wakeskate
skate shoes
lube (for bindings...LOL)
helmet (if he is hitting sliders)
trip to a camp/cable park
mag subscription(s)
DVD's (cough::Transgression::cough)
Gift Certificate so he can pick exactly what he needs
I have seen some wakeboard jewelry before
wakeboard bench
wakeboard clock
wakeboard neon sign (that would be COOL!!!)

I am just scratching the surface here....

I think that he would love a new board. He is 6'4" 230lbs...Any suggestions...He is an advanced rider!

......def......a new board is the most exciting new thing you could get him!........cwb Marius 140 platinum. Depends how much you like him and the money you want to spend.

Do you have any idea what wakeboard he rides currently? This might be able to get us a better idea of what style board he likes. If you don't know what board he has I would second Nick's recommendation. If he doesn't like a 3-stage rocker board he can exchange it for a Covin, Frontier or Mana.

This sounds funny I guess... but money isnt a factor...I just want him to like it!

ibex/marius would prolly make a big splash. some new bindings are definitely a hit.

LTR - find out what his current ride is. board and length. and what boots are on it. snap a pic if you want, we'll help.

He currently has a CWB Sol and a O'brien but I am not sure what kind. Oh and they are 141.
I think that he likes the Sol better.

You guys are great! Thanks for the help!

He rides a 141 and weighs 230, a guy on your other post says you should try a 140 and you only weigh 160. Something sounds kinda funny there!!! But everyone has ther opinion I guess.

Yeah I thought that was funny!

If he is riding a Sol and likes it, you might consider a board ugrade that still rides somewhat similar.

A CWB Kink, Pure, or on the high end....a Transcend wouldn't be completely different from what he is used to.

Or you could alway throw a pair of new Zeus bindings on there.

......Wow you can def. upgrade his wakeboard and prob. his bindings too then......so if he likes cwb go with
the top of the line cwb 140 marius like I mentioned earlier and match with zeus bindings.....or a nice pair of open toe liquid force watsons (cant say enough about how comfy those bindings are)

I would go with the Mana 142 then.

Does he Wakeskate too ? A wakeskate and some shoes would be pretty cool imo . . . .
