I had to enlist the assistance of my wonderful wife to help with this article. Like me, she took to wakesurfing and gets excited to be out there early in the morning when the water is calm and we basically have the lake to ourselves. Unlike me, she has an extreme sense of coordination, balance, and grace whereas I specialize in falling out of chairs, running into things, and tripping over my own feet. She’s just better than me. These are just facts. On to our list of Best Women’s Wakesurf Boards.
Phase Five Diamond Luv Women’s Wakesurf Board
The Phase Five Diamond Luv is the skim style board that my wife rides so naturally it tops the list. The board has a single 1” fin allowing for some insane carving and response. Because it is single finned though, you will have less stability than a 3 finned board. The loss of stability from the single fin will translate to better performance. Phase Five Diamond Luv is a high end board for the women who are advanced riders. That’s not to say a beginner couldn’t learn on this board, they certainly could. My wife actually did and struggled at first, but now has grown with the board and is crushing it out the water. For pop and durability, the board is constructed with V.R.T.™ (Vacuum Ribbed Technology), which is a lamination process of built in glass/bar strings on the bottom of edge of board. Also the Techno Grip™ Traction is an EVA horizontal groove with dimple dots for increased foot traction. If you stop reading this article here and buy this board, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a board you’ll grow into if you are beginner/ intermediate or it will allow you to really push some limits if you are advanced/expert.
Ronix Koal Classic Fish Women’s Wakesurfer

Fins are floating fins with the new Fin-S 2.0 SpringLock Tech Tool-less System which allows you to easily change your fin setup in seconds.

The front EVA traction pad is concave and the rear EVA traction pad has an extra tall tail kick with arch support. With full rails, a tip rocker line of 3.7” for fast gliding and a size of 4’ 5”, this board is worth every penny of it’s price tag.
