There’s simply nothing better than spending your weekends out on the water, soaking in the rays and taking dips in the cool H2O when it gets a little too warm. The water can get a bit boring, however, if you don’t have an awesome boat to put a little excitement into your waterside weekend.

Those who love the feel of water spraying their bodies while they maneuver a board behind a speeding boat know the right boat can make all the difference when it comes to wakeboarding. Without a good wake, you may be stuck swerving back and forth and wiping out on purpose, just to get a little action thrown into the ride. That’s where this handy guide comes in. Let’s take a look at a few wakeboard boats that are proven to give a great ride every time they enter the water.

Moomba Mobius LSV

There is a reason this series of Moomba boats always sells better than the rest. Coming in at 21 feet and 2,000 pounds, this boat is equipped to provide a wonderful wakeboard surf at a price most people can afford. The Mobius LSV includes rocker switch gauges that allow you to quickly fill the ballast and easily switch out bags for more weight and a larger wake. Besides the fabulous wake, the boat also provides a comfortable spray-free interior with plenty of legroom, despite its smaller size.  This is a great vessel to start with if you are searching for your first board boat.
