I am going to buy a first board for my kids. Have seen a nice Full Throttle board. However I can't find any information regarding the manufacturer or board. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Is that the brand like the kmart life vests? If it is I think that is the brand my son totally ripped the bindings out on his first run. I could of course be wrong. How old/big are your kids?

Is CocaCola making wakeboards now?? The energy drink (Full Throttle) is good, I know that.

Honestly i think those cheap boards are ok i mean most people who get them are trying big s bends and stuff i saw a board at costco with binding and it was shaped like the era it was like 210 or something. not a bad deal for a beginner

Honestly Mark, go cheap, they will be growing out of them in no time and the way kids learn now adays they are going to want something different in time anyway.
What up Kevin? Hey maybe the s bends on anything that you can ride is cool, most of us can't do anything inverted. But let me know when you buy that Costco board so I can take a pic of that. Hey maybe that is your way into a board deal. You got signed to anything yet?

Why buy a cheap, poor performing product if youíre going to replace it with something better later? If youíre investing time into the family by taking the family wakeboarding then invest into quality products that will help their wakeboarding experience so the kids want to ride more.

Companies that jump on the wake band wagon producing low grade Kmart, Costco wake goods know nothing about how a wakeboard should work. Top brands produce top quality performing products making wakeboarding easier. Just because you see pro riders ripping on top products doesn't mean they won't work for the everyday rider, the everyday rider benefits the most from these products because it makes their wake experience better.

Buy a top quality product once; don't buy a crappy poorly constructed poor performing board just to have to spend the money all over again for the right product. Your kids will be stoked dad knew whatís up and gave them the tools to rip. Go to a pro shop, get the right board from people who know what they're talking about.

The biggest benefit for dadís justifying spending money on good products is the quality family time. If your kid wants to ride because he or she is having a good time then the family can all grow together as wakeboarders keeping the family close. The growing pains kids and parents have in the teen years might be easier if they can all ride together.
