The 11 Best Wakeboards of 2024

Hey there, fellow wakeboarding enthusiast! If you're like us, wakeboarding isn't just a hobby; it's a passion that adds a whole lot of excitement to life. Whether you're just starting out or looking to step up your game, picking the right board is key. The good news? There's a fantastic variety of wakeboards out there, perfect for every skill level. We've scoured the options to bring you the best wakeboards of 2024. 

So, before you gear up for your next session on the water, let's dive into this list together and find the board that will make your wakeboarding trips even more amazing.

Our Picks for the Best Wakeboards of 2024

Additionally, while these are our top recommendations for wakeboards in 2024, it's important for you to understand how to compare and choose the board that suits you best. Exploring the different types of wakeboards will help you grasp the various features and benefits each one offers, ensuring you make an informed decision and purchase the best wakeboard for you.

If you're new to the sport, it helps to brush up on the fundamentals of how to wakeboard. This sport has a relatively steep learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, there's no limit to how much you can do on the water.

1. Best for Advanced Riders: 2024 Ronix RXT Wakeboard

Starting our list is one of the finest wakeboards available. As a leading brand in wakeboarding, Ronix consistently delivers quality, and their Ronix RXT is no exception. Ideal for advanced riders, this board stands out for its ultra-lightweight and innovative design, enabling consistency throughout the ride with exceptionally soft landings. Responsive to every movement, the Ronix RXT empowers you to effortlessly elevate your wakeboarding skills.

The RXT Wakeboard comes in multiple sizes, from 136 to 148 cm. Ronix has engineered this board to be as light as possible, so much so that it's 1.5 pounds lighter than earlier versions. The secret is the proprietary material, which almost makes it seem like you're standing on a cloud. The shape of the board also provides better stability and consistency both on the water and in the air, so feel free to start pushing those boundaries!

Packages Well With

To use a wakeboard, you need high-quality bindings, and the Ronix RXT BOA bindings are designed to work perfectly with this board. If multiple riders with different foot sizes are going to use the same board, we also recommend buying the Ronix District Wakeboard Boots.

2. Best for Explosive Pop: 2024 Ronix One Blackout Wakeboard

One of the most fun things to do on a wakeboard is higher pop, which is basically jumping off the wake and into the air. The higher the pop, the longer your hang time and the more adrenaline will pump through your system. While all wakeboards allow for some level of pop, none do it quite as well as the Ronix One Blackout.

In fact, the Blackout is endorsed by professional wakeboarder Nic Rapa, thanks to its expert design and incredible response. Even if you're riding on a smaller wake, you can get more air with this board than you could with anything else. Ronix has upped the ante with this model, and we're sure you'll love seeing how far you can push yourself with it.

Packages Well With

If you want the best wakeboarding experience with the Blackout, we highly recommend using the Ronix One Carbitex Bindings. However, since those are some of the stiffest bindings (great for ankle support) in the Ronix line, you may want to switch to a less stiff (a little more flexibility) binding with the Ronix One Wakeboard Bindings instead.

If you're using the same wakeboard for multiple riders, you'll need the Ronix Anthem BOA Bindings to accommodate everyone.

3. Best Budget-Friendly for Explosive Pop: 2024 Ronix One Legacy Wakeboard

If you're like us, you know the value of getting a wakeboard that offers the best pop. However, just because you want extra hang time doesn't mean you have to break the bank. For those who are on a budget, the Ronix One Legacy Wakeboard is a bit more affordable while still giving you the air you deserve.

Although this board is a little heavier than the Blackout, it's still perfect for popping off wakes at almost any speed. As a three-stage rocker, you can utilize the tip, the middle, and the tail to get more air off the wake. Because of this design, it works best for those who know what they’re doing. 

Packages Well With

Instead of buying boards and bindings separately, you can save time and money by bundling these items in a single package. The Ronix One Legacy with One Wakeboard Package is the best bet for this board. If you're adapting to multiple riders, the Ronix One Legacy and Anthem BOA Package is preferred.

4. Best for Intermediate Riders: 2024 Ronix Supreme Wakeboard

Because wakeboarding has such a steep learning curve, it may take a while to go from beginner to expert. If you're somewhere in the middle, you need a board that gives you more flexibility while still being easy to master. The Ronix Supreme Wakeboard fits this description perfectly, which is why it's the best wakeboard for intermediate riders.

This board features a hybrid rocker, skillfully combining elements of both 3-stage and continuous models. It caters to those accustomed to a continuous board, allowing you to flatten the board for consistent jumps. As you gain confidence, you can leverage its edges to start popping off the wake with the 3-stage aspect for more professional finesse.

Packages Well With

The Ronix Supreme Wakeboard Package has everything you need to start figuring out how you like popping off the wake for your jumps. You can even mix up each take-off, depending on the trick you’re performing.

If you have multiple riders, we recommend the Ronix Supreme + Anthem BOA Package.

5. Best for Beginners: 2024 Ronix Vault Wakeboard

For newcomers to wakeboarding, a forgiving and adaptable board is essential. As finding your balance can be challenging initially, opting for a wider board with bigger fins helps with stability and direction. 

The Ronix Vault Wakeboard has a toe and heel side (shorter or longer, respectively), allowing you to learn the basics more easily. This model is one of the best wakeboards for beginners, but it can also grow with you as you develop your skills. Then, once you’re ready to jump the wake and do tricks, you can upgrade accordingly. 

Packages Well With

Start your wakeboarding journey with the Ronix Vault and Divide Wakeboard Package. You'll be comfortable on the water in no time.

6. Best for Women: 2024 Ronix Quarter 'Til Midnight Wakeboard

Typically, female wakeboarders, being smaller and lighter than their male counterparts, require boards with a distinct shape and balance. The Ronix Quarter 'Til Midnight Wakeboard is designed to cater to women of all skill levels. Its hybrid rocker design, like the Ronix District Wakeboard, makes it particularly suitable for intermediate and expert-level riders, offering a versatile and responsive experience on the water.

Packages Well With

The only package deal you'll need for this board is the Ronix Quarter 'Til Midnight with Halo Wakeboard Package.

7. Best for Beginner Women: 2024 Liquid Force Angel Wakeboard

If you want the best women's wakeboard but you're still new to the sport, the Liquid Force Angel Wakeboard is a safe bet. This model is a continuous rocker with a wide stance for stability as you find your bearings. As you enhance your skills, the Liquid Force Angel adapts to your evolving movements. Once you've mastered the basics and are ready for advanced challenges, you’ll be prepared to confidently transition to an intermediate or expert-level board.

8. Best for Big Guys: 2024 Ronix District Wakeboard

If you're a bit on the heavier side, you may think that wakeboarding would be too hard to master. Fortunately, Ronix has you covered with the Ronix District Wakeboard. This model is designed to carry extra weight and allow you to find your balance more easily. The size chart for this board goes up to 150 cm, which is ideal for riders of 190 pounds or more (up to about 250lbs).

If you're a bigger guy, you'll likely need bigger bindings. The Ronix District With District Wakeboard Package provides the comfort and reliability you deserve.

9. Best for Boys: 2024 Ronix Vision Wakeboard

As with men and women, girls and boys need specific wakeboards to adapt to their physical attributes. On top of that, the designs of these boards are well-suited to match the style preferences of each child.

The Ronix Vision Wakeboard is designed for boys up to 95 pounds, and it looks super rad on the water. Featuring a three-stage rocker, it's versatile for all skill levels, allowing young riders to develop their wakeboarding skills seamlessly without the need for frequent board changes.

As with the Vision, this wakeboard grows with your child as she starts to feel more comfortable on the water.

11. Best Budget Wakeboard: 2024 Liquid Force Trip

If you're interested in wakeboarding but can't invest a lot of time or money into the hobby, we highly recommend buying the Liquid Force Trip Wakeboard. This model is one of the most affordable, but it doesn't feel "cheap," and it will allow you to develop your skills quickly and easily.

Plus, if you can only go wakeboarding every so often, you'll need to ease yourself back into the groove with each excursion. The Liquid Force Trip is a great beginner to intermediate board that has a continuous rocker to help riders progress to the next level.
