Default Anyone know about Wakeboards?

My kids (teens) want a wakeboard. I don’t know anything about them. They’ve never used one before, So they don’t need anything fancy. I’d like to not spend a ton of money. Looking for any advice anyone can offer...

Don't know much about wake boards, but I have a downright hatred of wake boats. Idiots seek out the calmest water on the entire lake and turn it into absolute chaos....on purpose. Makes zero sense.

If your going to buy only 1 I would get the size that fits who will use it the most. Bindings are pretty universal in the cheaper setups. Liquid Force and Hyperlite have plenty of options. Longer the middle and side fins, the more bite they get and easier to control. Board shape also plays a key roll. My byerly is pretty flat and short short fins. Spins like a top. Go on Craigslist. A dime a dozen and great deals in very lightly used setups. Then if they need more advanced they can get dialed in perfectly with full boots and the whole 9 yards. Get a good wakeboard rope too. They are thin and no stretch. Good bite
