Hey, I'm looking to buy a new wakeboard. I'm currently on an older O'brien that I learned on but I've kind of outgrown it skill wise I think. I'm about 6'2", 215, and am right around an intermediate level right now I'd say, but I'm gonna be doing a lot of wakeboarding over the summer as I'll finally have time and a driver consistently. What do you guys suggest I look at that will last me. I don't wanna outgrow another board because I bought more of a beginner board, but I don't wanna spend much more than about $250 for the board alone, so I dunno where that leaves me. My parents agreed to pay for the bindings. Someone on another site suggested that I look at the '07 Hyperlite Murray, as that goes for a pretty decent price and he really liked his. Just looking for any suggestions or advice that you have. Thanks!

Sounds like you'd be best off looking for a deal on a 07 or 06 board with that kinda budget.

I'd suggest watching boarders best buy as well

Yeah, I have no problem buying an '06-7. Any suggestions on a specific board?

Even if you miss the item on you can usually still get it for pretty cheap from Right now they still have quite a few good 07 boards up there including that Premier for 179 which is great imo. Take a peek over there and you can find something to get you riding without making you broke.

There are a ton of great deals on ebay. I'm not talking about ppl selling their used junk either. Many retail stores post up their old merchandise on ebay as a means of quick liquidation. You can easily find an 06 or 07 pro model board for $200 or less. I just recently bought a brand new 2006 Liquid Force PS3 for $109 dollars.

Any thoughts on the Era? Also, what about bindings? I was kinda half looking at some Zeus' cuz theres a nice deal on boarders mall, but I guess I don't know a ton about them. Any suggestions in that area/on the Ruck?

Era is the '07. '08 Imperial/Premier is also in the running if anyone has some comments.
