WaterSkis.com launched Wakeboards.com, offering wakeboarders the opportunity to order equipment.

“The number of people who are wakeboarding continues to grow,” said Midwest MasterCraft owner Andy Larson, the boat dealer who started WaterSkis.com and now Wakeboards.com, in a statement. “We wanted to be able to better tailor offerings to the needs of wakeboarders, wakesurfers and wakeskaters.”

The site carries wakeboards, wakeskates and wakesurf boards from brands that include Hyperlite, Liquid Force, Ronix, CWB, Slingshot, Phase 5 and Inland Surfer.

The site also will feature a live chat system staffed by enthusiasts, not operators, to help browsers with product advice and provide customer service.

And Wakeboards.com will offer free ground shipping on all domestic orders over $99, as well as a lowest price guarantee program on in-stock items.
