I am tired of letting beginners use my good expensive boards. I need a good cheap beginner board for people to learn on. Any recommendations?

We have used a Hyperlite Landlock board and it is a great beginner board. Everyone of all sizes and get up on it.

No it is a long wide board. I is 5'9" long. We bought it from Evo, but it doesn't look like they have it now. We paid like $200 on a closeout.

It is not an active board, but it is an easy board for all sizes. My youngest rides it on her belly, her butt, or standing.

picked up an Obien Mana 5'0". big enough for newbs but still fast enough for bottom turns and maybe a little air

If you can find one, the Ronix caption is a great beginner board. It is fast tracking so it can handle smaller wakes and/or larger riders. It is very stable and not squirrelly at all, but still very fun. It doesn't pearl easy and is fairly light weight, so it's easy to get up on for smaller riders.
When I was learning, I first started off on a Broadcast, then went to a LF Fish, but it wasn't until I got on the Caption that wakesurfing really clicked for me. I admit we were still very new and hadn't quite got the surf wave dialed much, but this is the board that did it for me.
It is also durable as all heck, one time some big rollers came and started pushing me too close to the transom. I put the brakes on all the way and ended up falling off the back. The board shot forward and hit the tow ring on the transom. You can barely tell it hit it.
