Heading into summer, we are all looking for the best wakeboard to get our hands-on. New and improved features, incredible graphics, and ultimately the feel of a new wakeboard gliding through the water is like no other. But what is the difference between men's and women's wakeboards? Let’s dive in.
Wakeboards have slowly begun to transition into similar graphics for both men and women. However, you will still find on the market that women's wakeboards tend to have florals and pink or purple colours compared to boys' darker retro graphics. But don't stress if you are a boy and like lighter, more feminine colours or a girl and try to steer away from the pinks, you will find a range of colours and graphics available for both men's and women's wakeboards that suit both sides of the spectrum. All our wakeboards online come with a range of imagery to allow you to browse by graphics that interest you.
In terms of the design and features incorporated into the wakeboard, most boards are designed the same for men and women. The most significant difference between the two is the length and weight of the board. Women typically weigh less and are shorter than most men; thus, wakeboards for women are shorter in length and lighter. Wakeboards come in various sizes and shapes, therefore instead of basing the board on your gender, look at your weight and height and find the right wakeboard for you. You can read our blog on how to choose a wakeboard & size chart to help.
Wakeboard boots are the biggest difference between males and female when purchasing wakeboards and products. Women's wakeboard bindings are slightly narrower than men's due to most men having wider feet than women. Further, men's feet typically run longer, thus have bigger bindings that cater to the differences. Finally, the centre of gravity varies between men and women meaning the bindings are placed slightly differently on the board between both genders.
