hey my sister is turning 18 in march and i'm not sure if i should try to get her a wakeboard or what. I felt bad when she had to use my board and bindings (size 12!) and I thought that maybe if I got her a package she may want to try it a little more.

The only reason I am not sure that I should get her a board is because I don't know if its something she really enjoys or not. When I asked her last time on the boat I couldn't tell if she was serious or not that she liked it. I thought maybe if I got her a board she could try it and see if she likes it as much as me instead of kneeboarding and doing pointless 360s.

I'd really like a girls opinion on this and I want to make sure that I'm not pushing her into wakeboarding but she does dirtbike so she may like wakeboarding too. (Note: she has wakeboarded and can get up and ride)

ask any questions please and if you think its possible direct me to a nice but not to expensive package board. Thanks!!!

i think she'd like it! buying her a starter package of her own would probably give her a little more incentive to keep trying it too. i know i wouldn't try something too often if i always had to borrow someone else's gear.

what about this... since $300 is kinda expensive and i'm only 15 and i don't know if she'll dig it, what if i got her her own bindings that fit her? i don't have an advanced i kinda have a beginner/intermediate (omega 139") but would just bindings be smarter? thanks

bindings are a great idea - they make such a big difference! she'll actually start being able to control the board, and then start having more fun.
you might be able to find a good package deal that would be almost as cheap as boots alone though.
you sound like an awesome brother - i think she'll be stoked whatever you decide to do!

might be something 2nd hand that would suit too, like this?

i agree with alice ... you do sound like an awesome brother! i'm sure she'll be stoked whatever you buy her - it's always fun to get your first "own" gear, no matter what it is. way to get another girl into the sport!

you can also go to your local shop and pick up a used combo for a pretty decent price. and like kylie said its fun to get your own gear. so dont worry about it...she'll like whatever you get her =)

I would check out the Hyperlite 2007 Divine with 2007 symbol boots. You can buy it in a package deal from Performance Ski and Surf in Orlando FL. for $299.99
The Divine is a great board for beginer to intermediate riders, and the Symbol boot is very adjustable and easy to get into and easy to get out of! Hope this Helps! Heather J

I started out on a Liquid Force Substance 134 and i still use it now (with the exception of last summer because I was pregnant), but it's great for starting out and for more advanced tricks if she's into it! I recommend the Liquid Force Ultra Sucks for bindings because they're so easy to get in and out of and its like riding on pillows!
