Here we are again in 22, ready to take the boats out of the dry dock and put them back in the water. For my part, I’m so happy to finally be back on the water in wakeboarding, it’s been too long.
So in my spare time I tested some of the best wakeboards in the world behind the superb G23! If you haven’t had a toe behind a Super Air Nautical G23 then take one! the sillage is just crazy. perfect shape and sends you into the flats.
So the testing involved riding in the same conditions on the same boat so we had a super fair test for all boards, here are our 5 best wakeboards of ’22
Liquid Force Trip Wakeboard – Yes, it looks way better than previous years! But how does it roll? Good to get into this top 5 wakeboards it must be good! After testing this and considering the price, how could I not put it in a number 5? It handles well behind the boat and is predictable and super easy to ride and progress, which will not appeal to beginners/intermediates who will love this wakeboard. It’s the perfect family boat board to share with other wakeboarders in your family because it’s so forgiving.
Landing at number 4,
State Hyperlite Wakeboard – So state wakeboarding has something that no other wakeboard has and that’s a big reason why it made this list. Thus, the State is perfect for the wakeboarder looking to progress to new tricks, especially toeside tricks or switch tricks. The reason is that the toe side rail of this wakeboard is different and much less aggressive than the heel side edge. You can see it in the image above. This makes wakeboarding a great starting point and improvement for a rider looking to progress quickly. Bottom line = Aggressive on the heels and forgiving on the toes. A great victory!
Just on the edge of number 3,
Ronix Timebomb Wakeboard – It’s a favorite of the Ronix team I hear and it’s also one of mine, Ronix makes killer wakeboards for boating and it’s one of the best for sure. The Timebomb delivers a highly explosive pop out of the wake to send you into orbit. Yes, it’s a bit more aggressive than previous wakeboards on this list, but if you want that kind of performance behind the boat, this is it. put this board behind any type of boat and you will see the difference a board makes for a half-decent wakeboarder. TICK TICK BOOM!
I just lost to top sport at number 2,
Hyperlite Murray Wakeboard – How the hell did a wakeboard at this price reach number 2 on the list, I can see you screaming at your screen. Well, let me tell you in simple terms! The Hyperlite Murray is the perfect blend of forgiveness and reward, it’s super easy on the lower back and knees, it flies out of the wake and lands well in the flats. Are the spins good? hell yes they are! If you dialed 360s in thrust for a 540, you’ll see that the swing rate on this board is very low and helps so much in getting that little extra spin out of the wake. Shaun Murray salutes, my friend.
And the winner of the top 5 Boat wakeboards is…..
Ronix RXT wakeboard – Yes it’s expensive, Yes it’s hard to find on the market, Yes Ronix won’t tell us what’s in the kernel BUT WOW! what a wakeboard this thing is totally crazy in every way. Pop: Noting else like it super high with an effortlessly progressive edge cut into the wake. Distance – this will send you into the flats, so be very aware! It’s very fast, so timing is everything and when you do it right, it’s so good. The swing rate is very low, so it’s much easier to get good spins than you expect and the weight! OMG, the weight! it feels so light underfoot when riding. keep standing out from the crowd, fill the boat and wait for the “HOLY SH*T” shouts from the dock!
So there you have it, I hope you enjoyed reading and feel free to leave a comment below with your best wakeboards of 2022. I’m happy to test wakeboards for a job (I don’t get paid a lot but it’s a good gig!
Now let’s break some glass at your local lake. Oh, don’t forget to pick up your new Wakeboard from S2AS.
