There are 3 types of wakeboards:
- Cable wakeboards: often have a wooden core for more flexibility and are ideally equipped with a reinforced bottom (gravel base) and sides (sidewalls) for use on obstacles;
- Boat wakeboards: are often somewhat stiffer than cable wake boards and have (removable) fins for more stability;
- Crossover wakeboards: suitable for use behind both boat and cable, but not the most ideal for both.
Determining the right size for your wakeboard is based on your height and weight. Your weight is important because your board must have sufficient capacity to let you glide over the water without too much effort. Larger boards have more surface area and therefore more bearing capacity. View our size chart for an indication of the length you need.
The shape of the bottom of a wakeboard is called a rocker. This influences how the board sails and behaves when it is sold and when there are obstacles. There are roughly 4 types of rockers:
- Continuous: a constant curve (banana). Drives smoothly and predictably. With this you usually jump further;
- 3-stage: A flat center piece and a curve at the tip and tail. This drives more aggressively, you can better pop with it. With this you usually jump higher;
- Hybrid: A combination between continuous and 3-stage. There are various forms and they all try to combine the best of the aforementioned rockers;
- Camber: This is taken from snowboards. Wakeboards with camber have a bulging in the middle section. With this, your weight is distributed differently on the water, which results in a completely different experience. Is usually only used for boat wake boards.
