I need a good beginner board, with bindings that will fit multiple people. I have my own board, but it wont work for teaching friends and family how to wake board. Need some advice on a good comfortable set up for this type of thing.

Thanks!

Brendan

this is what craigslist is for. Board will get thrashed by guests, just get something cheap from CL. Hyperlite state would be a good choice.

I use my old Hyperlite State 140 for beginners. Bindings are a little more tricky, just find a range that will fit most of the people that will be using it. Try to find a discounted pair from previous years on evo.

+1. I have a 140 state for guests, with some size 7-11 bindings. I got up 6 never-evers on that board over the summer, ranging from 100-200 lbs. Works great for all.

+2 for 140 state. I once had the larger size (145?) for bigger riders. I went a few seasons w/o bigger riders, so I gave it away as a Christmas gift. Nowadays, I have a raft of bigger (and older) newbies.

Brendan, do you have a specific range of sizes you're trying to accommodate? Here's a list of popular package-style boots and their size ranges:

Ronix Divide Boots (5- 8.5 )( 7.5 - 11.5) (10.5 - 14)
Hyperlite Remix Boot (4-8) (7-10.5) (10-14)
Byerly Standard Boots (7-10.5) (10-14)
CWB Vapor (5-8)(9-13)
Slingshot Option (4-8) (8-11) (11-14)

Each binding model above is geared towards beginners and can be packaged with a wakeboard of the same caliber. Good luck man.
