Go Ahead and Flex

The Byerly Buck Flex Wakeboard is built to catch major air off the back of the boat.

Byerly, which has been a trusted name in the wakeboard world for more than a decade, has released the new Buck Flex Wakeboard.

As the company puts it, in-house designers "found the Buck had more to offer than just boosting off wakes. Lay it up with some flex and incorporate our Perimiter CoEx Sidewall, and you have a durable shred for the cable."

Translation? The kids and grandkids will find the board to be twice as strong as a lot of others on the market, and you'll enjoy the easy stowage that comes with this thin, lightweight design.

Retail price: $749 for the 56½-inch model with clutch close toe boot.
