2009 Natural Wakeboard Reviews

2009 Natural WakeboardsArguably the most balanced board in our line and our flagship deck in 08, the Natural is a board that almost anyone can ride and feel “natural” right away. The full profile and performance blended 3-stage rocker provides the kick pros are looking for, the DELTA base keeps it fast, and the quad molded fins at each end provide traction in any conditions. Shape by Daniel Watkins and Chris Johnson Graphic Treatment: Matte Finish with spot varnish

Natural Obrien Wakeboards

Information:
“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…)
