Wakeboard size chart

29 january 2020

Choosing the right wakeboard length

What size wakeboard do I need? This is something many water sports enthusiasts wonder. The best wakeboard size for you mainly depends on two things:
1. Your weight
2. Your riding style


The table below shows the correct length of the wakeboard for a variation in the rider's weight. It’s important to choose the right board length, based on your weight, as it can be frustrating when a wakeboard is not long enough to float you sufficiently. 

Rider Weight lbs Rider weight kgs Wakeboard Length (cm)
< 100 < 45 < 130
90 - 150 40 - 65 130 - 134
130 - 180 59 - 82 135 - 139
170 - 250 77 - 113 140 - 144
200 - 275+ 91 - 125+ > 144


Riding style

However, besides your weight, you should also take your riding style into account. Some people prefer to ride a shorter wakeboard, and some prefer to ride a longer wakeboard.

Choosing for a shorter wakeboard

In general, shorter boards are slower and take more effort to push through the water. This is because, the more surface area the board has on the water, the faster it will move across the surface. Also, landings are a bit harder on a shorter board, than on a longer board. On the other side, with a shorter wakeboard it’s easier to do spins and air tricks.

Choosing for a longer wakeboard

A longer wakeboard is easier to ride and will make for softer landings because of the increased surface area. Also, it will give you more control because of the larger surface area. However, because longer boards are heavier, you have to work harder with air tricks.
