Ok so I see there's a lote of debate going on about the board so hopefully I can help clear it up. I built this board with the main goal being to make a wood board that would have the same durability and life expectancy of a fully composite board. I have Incorporated many years of riding and personal experience and put what i have found to work and along with my own personal preference into this board. I just think there are much better ways of making a wood board other than sticking 7-9 or how ever many veneers together and then digging the middle out to get concave which is basically the way its been done since wakeskating started. This wood core is the only one of its kind in the market and for now im not gona say to much about it so it stays that way. It has a 3 stage rocker that is 1.5 inchs. It can be from 39-41 inchs in length, and it weights in at about 12 1/2 pounds so this one wont fly away on you. Both top and bottom core's are completely in closed in a pbt plastic skin and closed off with black abs side wall. It is designed to ride like a bi level with more dramatic contour top but feel more like a 3d solid board.I have closed cell foam pads between the board to support the top deck and prevent from flexing very much. The pads also add some great cushioning when jumping big gaps or going big on the boat.
