Since we have a thread about the worst wakeboard made, I thought I would start one about the best wakeboard made.....

never ridden but from the community, the absolute has to be up there, premier, one, watson, shane, the natural has a good following, although slow the Mana is epic, the lyman is great, witness, and the Belmont/Motive is a classic ride. So in general the thesis of my argument is there are a lot of great boards, much more important is the technique.

The greatest boards I have ever ridden are the hyperlite belmont, liquid force trip, and I agree with Bryan, way different than my last boards but I am loving my mana right now.

I am guessing I am in the minority here but the Subjekt is my favorite board of all time and if I didnt work here a seager marine I would probably still ride it. But newer shapes deserve a rip too. Right now I have to say the Ibex and The Mana are pretty hot rides and The Shane and the Watson seem way more than solid.

I would have to say that the best wakeboard shape ever made in my opinion is the O'brien Player. I have seen that board change so many peoples riding for the better its insane. I think its a gift from the wakeboard Gods, them and Chris Johnson and Daniel Watkins of course. Amazing ride!

I love my 02 Premier 140..

As an inexperienced rider I found it to be very forgiving and stable, but now that I'm up to the mediocre riding level, I like it even better for the same reasons. I've tried a few different boards but keep coming back to it...

I would like to try the 07? CWB Transcend Platty again though.

IMO it's a very tough call between the Obrien Natural and the Obrien Player. I was riding both boards when I made considerable improvements in my riding. Hopefully next season will be the same story!

I'd probably say the 01 Premier. So many boards are basically based off that board. The shape is still around just with minor tweaks, its called the Era. I'd put the Trip second and the 2000 Belmont and Flight 69 tied for third.
Old    Joe Umali (dakid)      Join Date: Feb 2001       12-10-2008, 11:38 AM Reply   
actually, the premier was based off the bad ass.
Old    Nick Haisch (shredsickgnar)      Join Date: Sep 2006       12-10-2008, 11:41 AM Reply   
Never said it wasn't, but the premier was the board that made the impact on the industry.
Old    Train (ttrigo)      Join Date: Dec 2004       12-10-2008, 11:46 AM Reply   
flight 69 started the transition, so I would say that board was the best!

Natural..hands down. I've been able to go so much bigger on this board than any other board I have ever ridden.

I agrees with Nick on the '01 Premier. I rode that board for 4 seasons and still ride my wife's (she has the same shape in the '03 model) for time to time.

6 months ago I would have said the Natural, but now I have to go with the Decade! Maybe it's because I'm getting older and really appreciate the softer landings from the big air it gives you.

LF Lyman IMO. I have ridden a lot of boards and demoed many new ones last year and the Lyman blew everything Ive tried out of the water (Including LF sisterboards Watson, Shane, and Witness)

Jobe Gerry Nunn pro model
HL Fluid/Murray pro model (98-04 design) - IMO, still one of the best all-around designs ever made. Simple but effective!

For revolutionary I'm going with the Redline, the Flight 69, the '97 Byerly Pro and the LF Trip. Everyone has basically stated their current board so I will too, new Transcend is my current fav.
