Just joined and would like to get some advice on a new board. I learned how to wakeboard in highschool I am 24 now, but I have been off and on wakeboarding since. Last year I decided to buy a used board just to have around the lake house, I always previously rode with friends. I cant do any tricks nor have I really tried, but I get up easy carve easy and jump small wake pretty easily, no problems at all on the basics. I would like to start progressing to jumping larger wake and learning backrolls, 180's, etc.. now that I have a boat and some guys to ride with. I have been riding an Obrien Ace and its pretty easy to ride but its a little old and beat up. I want to get myself a nice high end board to start progressing with. I dont think I am ready for a true 3 stage rocker yet. But I do want really good pop as I wont always have that big wake to ride. I have my eye on the 2011 Hyperlite Marek bio. Seems like a great board to progress with, would this be good for me or is it too much of a pro model board that I may have some trouble with it, or do you guys think I should jump on a board with a 3 stage rocketr like a liquid force Harley. I understand the rocker isnt going to make the biggest difference and a board like this wont magically make me do great tricks but I see it as a way of progression in learning how to ride well on a high end board. Also, what do you all think for bindings?
