welcome to the world of wakeskating. soon you will never want to strap again, haha. but seriously.
its harder to try out wakeskates first so most people end up buying blind.
get a 40". a 41" would be fine but 40 would be better for you. if you get foam you can always put grip on it later(you will).
wood vs. composite is preference. wood feels way better but copmosite lasts forever

whatever you do, dont buy a "begginer" board, like the hyperlite scape. you want something that you will progress into, not out of.

alright well i just purchased a liquid force wakeskate and i had one question. I know it sounds kinda weird but what stance should i ride in, because i ride left foot back on a skateboard but i ride right foot back on a wakeboard.

im the same way. i ride right foot back when i wakeskate, but since you are like this mix it up a lot. as soon as you learn something, learn it switch. because i skateboard goofy and wakeskate regular it has helped me switch a lot. i think i can switch ollie higher then i can regular ollie, but it still feels switch(awkward)
