I'm looking to buy a board.

I'm just getting into wakeboarding and last summer have gotten good balance and this summer plan on starting to learn some jumps.

I'm a fast learner and good at water sports however still getting the feel for wakeboarding.

Anyway,

5'-9" 170 Lbs.

Is this board any good?

Blindside Five-o Tiki
132
"Pro" slip in bindings
Used 8 times
Asking $250 canadian for the package.


I don't need the best board you can buy but also don't want a crap board.

Thoughts/comments???

Thanks.

132 might be a little on the small side for you and I don't know anything about "Pro" bindings. If I were you I would try it out first along with a few other boards to see what you like. If you are looking for an inexpensive price I would look in the classifieds here and on e-bay.

132 definately seems to short, especially for a beginner, your first jumps will be very hard to stick with a short board... I'd look for at least a 135 or 137.

I can hook you up for your budget with an appropriate sized Blindside Stingray and Blinside bindings. The 5-0 is a good board, but too small for you. The Stingray has more agressive rails and will take you further on your learning curve.
