I am trying to find a good Wakeboard for my son. He is just begging to ride, he can get up easy and can easy in and out of the wake using my board (Faze 141) but it’s too big for him. He is 11 years old, weighs about 80 pounds. Any suggestions on what he needs?

My son is 12, 90lbs and rides a 127. Here are a couple of pics. It is a relatively cheap Jobe Jinx, but he has learned to ride it well.

My 9 yr old daughter runs with 119. which is getting a little small. I would try a 124.

Staying with the same company, there is package deals for the Pure (Sizes: 130/134/141) with Vapor bindings and the Kink (Sizes: 134/140/144) with Torq bindings.

My oldest son rides the Pure while the second oldest rides the Kink. Both boards are very, very good for them.

If you can find one of these http://www.wakeworld.com/products/index.php?l=product_detail&p=55691, it's an awesome board for a grom.

I found mine on eBay. This would be a good board for your son...

Another great choice! If you can keep the board size to 125cm or under, that's what you want. Otherwise they can't right the board when they fall because it's too big and heavy.

Keep an eye one the size of the bindings. My son had pretty big paws for many of the bindings on the packaged smaller boards. The one we found had medium bindings, which fit him well with a little room to grow.
