I am still a beginner in wakeboard, and have been using my friend's board for some time now. I am now looking to purchase my own board. My budget is around $400-450 for the board with bindings, and hopefully also with a rope setup.

What do you guys recommend that I purchase? I am spending this much on a board because I don't want to spend more $$$ down the road to get a better board. I rather just purchase a good board the first time.

If you bought 2012 stuff, you could be looking at $400 for a board, $375 for bindings, and $100 to $200 for a rope.

With your budget, if you are trying to get a board, rope and bindings for $400, you are going to have to buy some 2010 or 2011 stuff, which is fine in my opinion. But now you are limited to $200 boards, $200 bindings, and a $50 rope. Buy a static line rope for $50 and hit up Ebay for the board and bindings. Ebay has a lot of combos in the $350 to $400 range. Find one that you like the looks of, then youtube it for review videos.

I'm a fan of Ronix, but everyone has their own opinions. Also, do some research on the difference between a continuous rocker, 3 stage rocker and a hybrid. There is a big difference on the water.
