Vice Obrien Wakeboards
Since the days of the Phatty, O’Brien has been making wide boards better than anyone, and the Vice continues that reality – better than ever for 08 with the addition of the DELTA base. Often referred to as the designated wake hitter of the O’Brien line, Josh Sanders’ Vice has the width and progressive rocker line for huge air and a large center spine to make landings buttery soft. The DELTA base makes it faster for 08 so you can ride longer, go bigger, and sign autographs later.

Player Obrien Wakeboards
Filling boat racks since 2003, this former Watkins pro model is the foundation from which the Natural was created. Carefully blended 3-stage rocker and a wide mid-section gives this deck a ridiculously big boot off the wake. Bolt on the pipe fins if you want a tighter, more precise edge hold or ride without them if you like a looser feel. Either way the Player gives any ripper a great experience out on the lake.

Valhalla Obrien Wakeboards
Many have called the Vallhalla one of the greatest shapes ever produced, and is a favorite among the O’Brien team. This year we added O’Brien’s own DELTA base technology to make this board even better. A thin tip and tail make for a light weight deck and incredible swing weight. Sean O’Brien can ride anything well, but he’s been absolutely killing it on the ‘08 Valhalla. With this year’s retro 80’s graphic and the Valhalla’s proven performance, be prepared to have one rad day on the water.

Coda Obrien Wakeboards
Due to some legal rabble babble with its name, last year’s Cartel comes back renamed the Coda. Arguably the fastest 3-stage board on the market today, the Coda is alive, quick and snappy on the water. The low-volume step down rail provides superior edging and accelerated edge to edge response. The true 3-stage rocker line provides an aggressive vert pop and the signature DELTA bottom gives the deck a clean release off the wake. V-spine bottom disperses impact on landings – even landing in the flats.
Brand new for ‘08, the O’Brien Coda is everything you have come to expect from O’Brien for hard hitting freestyle performance. O’Briens R&D department relentlessly dedicated all their spare time designing this new shape. They combined the best composite technologies and a subtle chevron design with a progressive 3-stage rocker for the ultimate boost off the wake. Why you ask? All so that you can fine tune your style and stand out in your crew. Nick Ennen destroys it on the O’Brien Coda. (more…)

“After the debut season on the market, the Natural has already become one of the most innovative decks on the market. The legacy it has created only continues for 2008.” When designing this deck, O’Brien’s engineers sat down and worked the details out with Daniel Watkins. He wanted the wakeboard to have similar features to his last wakeboard, the Player. So O’Brien pushed the limits with the already successful Player to create the Natural. For starters the molded fins were narrowed and/ or shortened to create less drag and let this deck build as much speed as possible. However this did not quite create the speed Daniel was looking for, so the chevron notches were introduced to the bottom of the wakeboard. Used in competition race boats for years, the chevrons help break water off the tail of the wakeboard making it ride higher and faster in the water. This gives you a 3-stage rocker wakeboard that adds many characteristics of a continuous rocker wakeboard, making it nearly compatible with any style of rider. The rails were fully rolled all the way up through and to the cupped rails, making the deck roll onto edge smoother for a more natural feeling. It also made the wakeboard more durable to sliders and kickers. Daniel loved the ultra smooth landings of the Player so we kept the same double concave in the middle of the wakeboard. (more…)
