Hi, I was looking for a good cable park board that won't break when I hit sliders and rails. This is going to be my first board and I'm new to wakeboarding.
I would like to keep my budget as cheap as possible. Would either of these boards be good and not break with use on rails?

Thanks!

I'm 6'3 with a size 14 foot and weigh 190

That first board will be perfect.

Get it before someone else does!


I think it's the 142 length based on the graphic. Make sure it's that size and you'll be fine.

Thanks! I just wanted to make sure it would be good because I've read that you shouldn't use all wakeboards on rails, only ones with a special base

That first one you found just happens to be a Liquid Force Substance "Grind" edition. Perfect for rails and has the special coating you're talking about that's specifically made to take extra abuse from rails. Excellent shape, you really couldn't ask for much more




Don't be mistaken though, you can use most modern boards on rails/ramps without major issue (you might scrape off the graphic). They are pretty tough! But if you're going to be riding primarily at the cable/rails and ramps, it's worth seeking out a model specifically made to use on rails.
