Made With Care. Ridden Without. Damn Durable Wakeboards.


Two friends shared  a common love around technology, time tested durable design, and the great outdoors. We started building. Injecting a fresh aesthetic with a fun DIY ethos into wakeboards, a brand was born. Our team shares a diverse background backed by good ol' American ingenuity & grit.

5 years in, we built the only high production, direct-to-consumer manufacturing operation in the USA for boards sports. In today's world of cheap offshore manufacturing, building durable wakeboards in the USA is no small feat. We have complete control over manufacturing processes, space age materials and first-to-market technologies. Together, we bringing you the best of both worlds in design, performance, and price. Both sides can win.

We've pioneered a bit since our all wood wakeboards were first released. Here's a few we're most proud of.

Meet The Team

The Frontier of  wakeboardtechnology

Here’s a secret not many wakeboard brands care to share. Almost all wakeboards are made in the same large scale factory. They are built for mass output with cheap labor and materials. These wakeboards function for little beyond the time it leaves the shelf. Why should you care? The technical BS doesn’t actual change the benefit or fun for you – the rider. We take a more progressive approach. You can do more with less.

Whatever wakeboard you decide to buy, take note of the following materials. These durable wakeboard materials matter.

Quantum Cores

The highest quality Paulownia built Quantum Cores are engineered for flex, snap, and longevity vs other foams or multi-composite core counterparts.  Each core is built with three vertical 100% Paulownia segments joined together side by side. Each of our Quantum Core blanks are milled in this specific '3 ply' layup. The result? The most durable, lightweight, and lively core pattern in wakeboarding. Quantum Core blanks are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.

Sculpted Sidewalls

Precisely machined arcs and contours milled into durable UHMW material inject our wakeboards with a dose of herculean strength. You'll see increased impact protection and weight reduction. It also looks nice. Your wakeboard is officially 'on the juice.'

Ghost Stringers

Our most technical and stealthy innovation to date. Ghost Stringers are powerful triangular wood reinforcements buried in each wakeboard's wood core. The triangular stringers secured in place using a special fiberglass layup. We then press the stringers into precisely milled areas of the core. This builds a durable & snappy response through the centerline of each wakeboard with zero added weight.

Sintered Die-Cut Bases

The highest quality Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) sintered bases we could get our human hands on. By using a die-cut process for the first time in wakeboarding [like piecing together a puzzle], we have eliminated the use of inks which reduces weight & waste. Each base is finished with exact tolerances and offers a consistent and smooth feel on cable park features.

Paulownia Woodland icore

The core is really just that, the heart & soul of a board. It determines many of the riding characteristics before we start experimenting with different layups and space age materials. All our cores are vertically laminated, sustainably raised and harvested with FSC certified Paulownia Woodland i-Cores. We use a full wood core because of it's consistent energy, snappy response, and unsurpassed durability. The Paulownia Woodland i-Core produces lively pop season after season.

M6 Inserts

M6 is a worldwide metric bolt standard size for wakeboards. M6 offers a tighter tolerance which creates a much stronger interface between your board and bindings over other board to boot systems. Each of our M6 inserts are custom made to a wakeboard's core thickness. The M6 insert pattern gets pressed through the core, top to bottom, which yields up to 150% more strength over industry insert standards. Utilized in a 5 or 7-pack setup with .5 inch spacing to fine tune your stance width.
