Damn Durable Wakeboard Technology


Two friends shared  a common love around technology, time-tested durable designs, 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 'in-house' 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. Using the latest innovations in tech, we're bringing you the best of both worlds. 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.

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 using cheap labor and materials. These wakeboards function for little beyond the time it leaves the shelf. Why should you care? The technical BS they market doesn’t result in more fun or better performance for you – the rider. We take a more progressive approach. We believe you can do more with less and offer the best value in wakeboarding.

Whatever wakeboard you decide to buy, take note of the following. Material and design innovations 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 are secured in place using a special fiberglass layup. We then press the stringers into precisely milled areas of the core. The result is a lively snappy response through the centerline of each wakeboard and super smooth landings 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.

Carbon Fiber Shell

Looking to shed a few lbs. while increasing your odds of survival on those knee-buckling double ups? A full top and bottom wrap of premium quality carbon fiber will do the trick. Jet pack sold separately.

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 | 5 or 7 Pack

M6 is a metric measurement that offers tighter tolerances and strong interface between board and binding systems. Our Hexagon shaped custom M6 inserts are molded with ribbed sections significantly increasing insert strength by up to 150%. This offers a simple steadfast solution to fine tune your stance with small half inch adjustments.
