2009 Traffic Eco Wakeskate Reviews

April 6th, 2009 · No Reviews · Add a Review

2009 Traffic Eco WakeskatesWhen we started testing bamboo as an alternative to traditional hardwood for our skate decks – we thought we were just doing our part to help out the planet. What we didn’t expect is that our riders actually preferred the feel of the bamboo over a traditional wood deck. They loved the snap on ollies, and the durability on obstacles is better than any other wood board in the industry. The higher density of the 100% bamboo construction adds more weight to the deck, and more control in tricks. Traffic ECO – Saving the earth one skate at a time!

Weight range:

101cm: 50-140 lbs.
107cm: 90-180 lbs.
113cm: 130-220 lbs.

2009 Intox Grip Wakeskate Reviews

April 6th, 2009 · No Reviews · Add a Review

2009 Intox Grip WakeskatesBrand new for 09, the INTOX is designed for the advanced rider while being forgiving and predictable for a beginner. While the Intox has some of the most defined concave and kicktails of any wakeskate, they blend together to make one of the best feeling boards on the market. The aggressive kicktails allow for better leverage and power for more skateboard style ollies, shuvits, and flip tricks. The deck shape flows from concave in the middle to convex at the kicktails which provides the correct contour to fit the arch of your foot perfectly for more control on shuv maneuvers. The edge starts out thick in the middle to keep the board loose & forgiving and blends to a sharp edge at the tips for control.

Length: 105cm/41.34”
Width: 40cm/15.75”
Rocker: 3-stage 5.59cm/2.2”
Edge: Variable Beveled

2009 Catalyst Wakeskate Reviews

March 28th, 2009 · No Reviews · Add a Review

2009 Catalyst WakeskatesHow do you improve the winningest shape in wakeskate history? Easy, enlist the help Scott Bouchard. That’s right Butch and Grubb teamed up to shape everything Grubb was looking for. The new and improved Catalyst series starts with a blended 3-stage rocker line to generate more speed into the wake. Butch built a wider overall profile for increased surface area to give Grubby the extra wake-to-wake pop he wanted. To ensure the ride was not too loose, however, the pair designed dual base channels for tighter edge hold into the wake. Finished off with more pronounced concaves and a hybrid EVA / grip tape top, the Catalyst is built to win another generation of titles.

2009 Vinyl Wakeskate Reviews

March 28th, 2009 · No Reviews · Add a Review

2009 Vinyl WakeskateComing off the best season of his young career, it’s was only fitting that Brandon Thomas have a board to call his own. The 108 Vinyl is just that, everything BT has wanted and then some. Almost two years in the works, the Vinyl takes design elements from all of BT’s favorite skates and combines them into one. Overall, the Vinyl has a wider profile to create pop and accommodate for a bigger foot. A subtle concave and die-cut grip tape top complement the board’s over all shape. Throw in a new blended 3 Stage rocker line and dual tip/tail channels and you have a skate built for performance.
