Posted: Mar 19, 2012 11:03 am Post subject: HELP, buying my own board.
Hey guys,

I just started wakeboarding a little while ago, I've been using the 2011 Hyperlite movite (really liked it) at OWC and now I wanna get my own board.

I've been thinking of getting one of these boards:

2011 Hyperlite Divine (really liked this one, anyone think its a good board?)
2011 Hyperlite Eden
2012 Hyperlite Motive
2011 Liquid Force Angel

which one do you recommend? I just started wakeboarding so I'm not really doing tricks or anything, and I liked the continuous rocker on the motive

The divine is the old motive shape..

They do not even have the motive in the pro shop level boards any longer.

the 2011 eden is the same as the 2012 and the 2011 angel has the same design at the 2012 angel.

Are you riding cable only?

Yes Cable only...Do you think the Hyperlite Eden is a good board for a beginner rider?

The eden is a good beginner package. If you are riding cable I would demo a number of boards from the cable park and see what you like. OWC does have Hyperlite as the demo line so you should be able to demo the Eden.

If you have the chance also give the LF Jett (/Witness) a ride. Angel is same as Trip, can't go wrong with that one either.

So I should give a try to the Hyperlite Eden, LF Angel, LF Jett, LF trip?

Thanks for all the help I really appreciate it! Any advice is more than welcomed Smile
