Board size between 134-138...

if your a bigginer ride bigger than a 134, bigger will be more stable. demo as many boards as you can, same for bindings. as far as boards go, a continuous rocker will be more stable and beter on landings than a three stage rocker, but a three stage rocker give more pop. if you snowboard and know how to edge i would personally recomend something a little loser in the water, probably something with side fins rather than only a center one, all depends on the board tho. as far as bindings, havn't ridden to many myself, but i ride liquid force ultra suctions and i absolutly love them. again if you can, demo demo demo
i'm kinda new to wakeboarding myself, so don't take my word as law here, just some stuff i've picked up, hope it helps you

Joe's correct.... I ride the 2003 Ultras and there really isn't anyone out there that will bash on the Ultras in any way just because SO many people swear by them, they are tough to get in and out of if you dont know how to use them though. The Transits are some of the best bindings out there. Dont know what im really talking about anymore, you gotta try stuff out and learn for yourself what your looking for in a board and bindings. HL Motive is a GREAT board for beginner to advanced though! Or the LF Trip.

yeah, ultras are difficult on the entry and exit, specially for me still in the 2001 model... look at the bright side tho, if you do get ultras, once you learn how to get em on and off (its not thathard) you'll be able to get in and out of anything out there
