I have been wakeboarding since last summer, and I really want to get back out there. I don't own a wakeboard, so I always invite my other two friends who have wakeboards to come along. One has an O'Brien System 140 and the other has a 137. I'm looking to get one for me, and willing to spend the money for a decent one. I can cut back and hop into the wake and get a foot of air or so, just so you know my skill level. I want something light and easy to maneuver, but I also want something steady that is easy to control.

Foot Size: 11
Weight: 130 lbs. (130-139 cm?)
Preferably Ronix, Hyperlite, or Liquid Force
Budget: $330

Could you point me in the right direction?

Look at boards between 136 and 140. LF Trip is a great entry level board imo. The Witness is a little step up, also recommended.

Agreed with both of those, can't go wrong with either. The Trip is a shape that's been around for a VERY long time and is great for entry level up to almost pro so it'll last you a long time.
