Verdict

The Hyperlite 2016 State Wakeboard is a good wakeboard, but its lack of versatility and the price makes it far from great. The graphics and Remix bindings makes it a great buy for children and smaller adult riders, but not for most adults. Beginners and experienced riders alike will find that it’s very easy to ride which ultimately makes them better, but there are definitely more versatile wakeboards out there that are more affordable.
