Looking to get a first board for the family to try out wakeskating. We have been wakeboarding for about a year or so. I want to stay in the $100 range (e.g., $80-130). I am 5'10" 175. and my sons are 5'7" 150 ish and 5'4" 115ish. We are probably looking to do more wakeboard style stuff and maybe use it for new wakeboard tricks for the time being, but could get more into it depending on how we like it.
I have been looking at the LF Faction 40 and the Hyperlite Catalyst Stylus 41, each are $100. I think both are 3-stage. Does anyone have an opinion about either. I think my local shop has the Stylus 41 available, but I would have to order the other.
If there is anything else in that range that is worth looking at...anthem, etc....
Also, any opinion on size. From what I have read the 40-41 is a mid-size. The guy at the local shop suggested 41-42 range and to shy away from the 40???
