Top Eight 2022 Wakeboards For This Summer

Summer is finally in full swing, so it's the perfect time to get out behind the boat, and what could be better than kicking things off with a brand new wakeboard. It doesn't matter if you're a first-timer or an experienced pro; a new wakeboard could be just the ticket to kickstart your riding and take your progression to the next level. So if you're looking for some fun this summer, we have a board just right for you.

The sport of wakeboarding has seen so much innovation and technology since its beginnings. For some, it can be hard to keep up with it all, so we are here to help. TROJAN WSS stocks an incredible lineup of highly recommendable wakeboards, suitable for a wide range of riders and abilities. However, to help you out, we have handpicked a few of our favourite 2022 boat wakeboards ready to go for this summer.

Top Five 2022 Men's Wakeboards

Ronix District Wakeboard - 2022

The Ronix District is considered a chameleon amongst wakeboards. The hybrid continuous/3-stage rocker allows for smooth and effortless turns yet allows for more aggressive high-speed cuts when you want them. Also, the hybrid rocker gives the best of both worlds when leaving the wake. When approaching the wake in a flat position, the rider gets the benefits of a 3-stage rocker - that is, explosive lift. However, the smooth blended rocker line gives fast takeoffs and landings if you hold an edge through launch. The Ronix District has been refined over the years resulting in a light board with soft landings, and it performs above its price range. The District is the perfect board for riders looking to progress or having several riders at different stages of their riding progression. Anyone can use it, from strong beginners through to advanced riders.

  • Rocker: Hybrid Continuous/3-Stage
  • Riding Style: Intermediate
  • Boot Recommendations: Ronix District Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (excellent open-toe boot idea for growing teens or multiple riders)


Ronix RXT Blackout Technology Wakeboard - 2022

The Ronix RXT has seen some upgrades this year, making this well-rounded board a versatile option for advanced riders. Refined tip/tail shapes break up water for softer landings and a forgiving experience on unstable landings. The continuous rocker line is one of the fastest Ronix offers, and it provides a smooth, predictable pop and plenty of momentum for taking tricks into the flats. The 'black out' tech used in the board's construction is a well-guarded secret; all you need to know is it gives the board a responsive feel with minimal impact on landings—the perfect board for better riders or someone looking for a wakeboard to progress with them.

  • Rocker: Continuous
  • Riding Style: Advanced
  • Boot Recommendations: Ronix One Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (popular choice, offering a good compromise between support and flexibility), Ronix RXT Red Bull Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (for riders that like extra mobility and flexibility for tweaking out their grabs and tricks), Ronix District Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (ideal for growing feet and sharing amongst multiple riders)


Hyperlite Murray Wakeboard - 2022

Shaun Murray has been around almost as long as the sport of wakeboarding; he's a household name amongst the wakeboard community. All this experience means Shaun knows a thing or two about wakeboards and what works. The Hyperlite Murray Pro wakeboard has a subtle 3-stage rocker for extra lift off the wake whilst maintaining a predictable pop. In addition, this board has a variable edge design that is rounded between the feet, sharp at the inserts and cupped at the tip and tail. The edge profile delivers storing edge hold when you want it but remains forgiving when needed. In addition, minimal base contours give this board a looser feel on the water. Available in sizes from 134 to 150, there's an option for just about anyone—an excellent choice for your boat.

  • Rocker: Subtle 3-Stage Rocker
  • Riding Style: Intermediate
  • Boot Recommendations: Hyperlite Ultra Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (for the hard-charging riders or go with an open-toe boot for the family)


Hyperlite Riot Loaded Wakeboard - 2022

The Hyperlite Riot loaded combines the completely redesigned Hyperlite Riot with the all-new Loaded Construction. New for this year, Loaded Construction is Hyperlite's most advanced offering. Proprietary materials and manufacturing methods deliver some of the lightest and most responsive wakeboards on the market. In addition, the Riot shape has been completely redesigned for this season for a faster and more responsive ride. Cleaner base features and thinner edges make this board super fast on edge. The Riot Loaded is an excellent choice for someone wanting to take their riding to the next level. Also, check out the Hyperlite Riot BIO Wakeboard for the same shape in a less responsive construction.

  • Rocker: Abrupt Continuous Rocker
  • Riding Style: Advanced
  • Boot Recommendations: Hyperlite Ultra Wakeboard Boots - 2022


Liquid Force Remedy Aero Wakeboard - 2022

The board of choice for pro rider Harley Clifford. The Liquid Force Remedy Aero combines the hard-charging shape of the Remedy with Liquid Force's lightest construction. The split-tip shape in the tip/tail, quad fins and base features give you plenty of grip and precision - perfect for charging hard at the wake. The aggressive 3-stage rocker ensures you'll get explosive pop off the wake whilst the base features allow for softer landings (well, as gentle as you can get when you go as big as Harley). So if you are a hard-charging rider, the pop and lightweight construction of the Remedy Aero is perfect for you. The Liquid Force Remedy Wakeboard - 2022 offers the same shape in a more affordable construction.

  • Rocker: Aggressive 3-Stage Rocker
  • Riding Style: Advanced
  • Boot Recommendations: The Liquid Force Aero 6x Wakeboard Boots come in two colours Aero 6X Black and Aero 6X White


Top Three 2022 Women's Wakeboards

Women's specific wakeboards are more than just boards with particular graphics. Whilst they share many design features and shapes of male boards, they are usually offered in a smaller size range with lighter fibreglass, making them suited to lighter framed riders.

Ronix Quarter 'Til Midnight QTM Womens Wakeboard - 2022

Sharing many design similarities with the top-selling Ronix District (see above), the Ronix Quarter' Til Midnight (or QTM) provides the same versatility and adaptability as the District in a ladies specific package. The hybrid continuous/3-stage rocker allows for smooth, effortless turns when needed yet allows for more aggression when your riding progresses. Also, When approaching the wake in a flat position, the rider gets the benefits of a 3-stage rocker - that is, extra lift off the wake. However, the smooth blended rocker line gives fast takeoffs and landings if you hold an edge through takeoff. The QTM has seen plenty of refinements over the years resulting in a light board with forgiving landings. The Ronix QTM will suit a wide range of riding styles and ability levels and will be home for anyone from a beginner to an advanced rider.

  • Rocker: Hybrid Continuous/3-Stage
  • Riding Style: Advanced
  • Boot Recommendations: Ronix Halo Women's Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (excellent open-toe boot idea for growing teens or multiple riders)

Ronix Rise Womens Wakeboard - 2022

The Ronix Rise Women's wakeboard sets a new standard in women's wakeboarding. This all-new shape, new construction and approach combine the speed of the Ronix RXT and kick of the Ronix One for the high-end ladies out there. In addition, the all-new construction reduces the swing weight - perfect for learning new tricks. Ronix didn't just think of elite athletes; they also surveyed the riding community to determine what was missing in women's specific boards. The result, a board that worked for riders new to the sport yet, allows elite riders to progress and land new tricks. This lightweight, responsive board is perfect for anyone serious about progressing and getting that new trick or adding an extra 180 to an old trick.

  • Rocker: Hybrid Continuous/3-Stage
  • Riding Style: Intermediate/Advanced
  • Boot Recommendations: Ronix Rise Women's Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (the all-new heat-moldable performance women's boot), Ronix Halo Women's Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (excellent open-toe boot idea for growing teens or multiple riders)

Liquid Force ME Womens Wakeboard - 2022

Meagan Ethell's pro model, the Liquid Force ME Women's Wakeboard features quad moulded-in fins which allow for a loose feel yet are deep enough for good hold when you need it. The progressive 3-stage rocker gives plenty of predictable pop, while the single to double concave keeps the landing soft when you go big. Finally, the removable centre fin is excellent for less experienced riders wanting more control whilst learning. You can remove the centre fin as you progress, allowing the board to progress with you. The ME is an excellent choice for any lady wanting to advance their wakeboarding.

  • Rocker: Progressive 3-Stage Rocker
  • Riding Style: Beginner/Intermediate
  • Boot Recommendations: Liquid Force Plush R6 Wakeboard Boots - 2022 (comfortable open-toe boot), Liquid Force TAO 6X Wakeboard Boots - White - 2022 (perfect if you're serious about progressing)
