Default help with wakeboarding?

i've seen a lot of people say they wakeboard so if you guys could help me that would be great. I really wanna wakeboard this summer and was wondering if anyone could help me since I have no idea what size I should get, what brands are good and which to stay away from, how much a board and bindings should cost, where I should get a board, and other basic info i should know.

My friend has a boat and I have a waverunner so i think one way or another we can get a tow. I'm 6'0 and 150 lbs. The only places in toledo, ohio that have skimboards that i could find are gander mountain and bass pro shop so i will probably be getting a setup there for like $190 i think. is that a good price? thanks in advance for any help you can give

I suggest what I always suggest when your new to a sport....

get a good solid mellow board until you get the feel for it...don't spend a ton until you know what your looking for as far as response....
