Wakeboard length usually ranges from 120 to 150 cm, and the width ranges from 38 to 44 cm. But a beginning wakeboarder should choose a longer board for greater stability during turns and while getting up on the wakeboard.

Women's wakeboards are usually slightly smaller than men's wakeboards, but the important factor is choosing a wakeboard that is right for your ability level. For women's wakeboards, the Hyperlite Women's Eden wakeboard is an excellent choice for novices or intermediates looking to improve their skills. Special features of the Eden women's wakeboard include a 3-stage rocker that pops off the wake and still allows for smooth carving, specific edges for the toe side and heel side, a deeper molded fin on the toe side, and layered glass construction. The Ivy bindings recommended to go with this board feature a rear flex zone and molded EVA heel.
