Wakeboards for Women - Is There A Difference?


A wakeboard for a woman is different from the men, in terms of size and design however the functionality is the same. The wake is not going to know the difference between a man and a woman!

Factors include the height, weight and physique of the individual. Since a woman may weigh less than a man and the average woman is shorter than a man, a female wakeboard may weigh less.

In regards to the wakeboard binding, in case of a women’s wakeboard, the binding is slightly narrower in the heel as opposed to a man.

The wakeboard designs may also lend themselves to female taste especially when it comes to color.

Wakeboard Towers

When purchasing a tower, ensure that it is built according to your wishes. Note the materials utilized for construction. It must have a reasonable balance of style, sturdiness, and utility. Also ensure that the tower has complete instructions regarding how to attach it to your watercraft. Even a little defect in workmanship can have terrible results at a high speed over rough water.

One great alteration that wakeboard fans have done with these towers is installing speakers. With these, even the driver and riders can hear their music while riding or being towed by the wakeboard boat. If you would like to install speakers, take into account they must be powered by a good amp. The boat produces a lot of noise by the water and wind. With loud speakers, you might hear the music over the noise. Just make sure that the speakers you install are water resistant and weatherproof.

Selecting Your Wakeboard

Before buying wakeboards it's really important to think about some basic criteria like the physical structure and weight of the rider. It is very clear that larger boards are required for heavier riders. If you are a first time user who is still learning the art of wakeboarding, then a larger board turns out to be handy because it will provide more assistance in maintaining your balance starting out.

Due to the technological advancements you may come across numerous wakeboards with different designs. Each having their own characterise for your equilibrium and maneuverability. Some of them provide awesome acceleration and a number of them provide for better tricks and they may be round or square in the front. Therefore it is up to you to select which one of them suits your style.

The wakeboards are usually made of two sorts of material, foam and honeycomb. From a different perspective the boards made up of honeycomb are costly and much lighter. Most sell their board with custom fitted fins and bindings, but if you've got any special preference than you might have to spend more on these. Bindings are one thing that is a important component of your board as they align your legs with the board and provide balance.
