one thing i would say if you like snowboarding get a loser board! i snowboarded long before i started wakeboarding, so i know how to edge prety well, even just comeing into wakeboarding. since i snowboard, and on a snowboard you are very very loose and can freely spin around in the snow etc, i've always liked boards that are somewhat simalliar; that can hold an edge, but still rotate around in the water somewhat. generally this will be a board with no center fin, and smaller outside fins that are lower than the rockerline of the board. these don't do to much unless you are on edge, just the way i like it.
i havn't ridden a huge variety of boards, so i can't really suggest certian models for ya, i rode a hyperlite premier and it was prety good, i'm now rideing an obrien vision 140, it has no center fin, and the two on the outside are 1.1". its a little tight for me, i'm thinkin of gettin 0.9" fins for it. the vision is an awsome board i think, definatly demo it if you can.
sorry, wen't off on a tangent there, anyway, if you snowboard you may like a loser board is all. have fun man, wakeboarding is sweet!
