Yea it will work but unless u are going to be riding the waves...you wont have a very good wake form the jet ski. Tho get either a hyper lite or liquid force. im going to recommend getting a wake skate. You tube it if you don't know what it is. But over all good luck bro

you can ride a wakeboard behind a Jet ski..but it kind of takes away from it unless you are hitting rails. A wakeskate would be better if you are only riding behind a jet ski because you can do kick flips and wake grinds and such to occupy your time. If you still want to buy just a wakeboard though, I would go with Liquid Force or Ronix. Just find the biggest board they make and you should be golden.

Aight There are a bunch of factors as to what to buy. I currently ride Liquid Force and I am sponsored by Liquid Force so that is what i would recommend simply because those are the boards i get to ride. As for what you want to spend. If you are going with 500 and you want to get the best board combo for you....I would go with a 142-146 LF Trip with the biggest LF ultra boots you can find...probably a 2X. These are 500 seperate but I am guessing you could get a better combination price at like overtons.com, or places like that (I worked at overtons too). The Trip is a continuous rocker meaning that the bottom is a continuous curve and it will give you a lot of consistency in your jumping (pop) off the wake and the small cupped molded in fins allow you to ride the board loose when not on edge but cut hard when you want. Pretty forgiving as well. You can buy many different boards though...Hyperlite, Ronix, Gator, O'brien...they all offer good boards. PM me with any questions though and good luck

Here is a good board for a good price today. This website is legit. I have ordered a bunch of stuff
