2008 Faction CWB WakeboardsCWB Faction Wakeboards

Information:
The Faction movement was formed last year when a couple reps had some riders that made a difference in their territories. It was built around those riders who do everything it takes and whatever it takes to get their next set. Eating, sleeping, and breathing take a back seat, everything wake. The Faction brand is now not only a board and boots, but clothing, handles and now a shape targeted to the smaller rider. The guys wanted a board that was a different ride, something they could take to the cable or rail park and still have something they could hit a solid double up, or pull a back five off the wake. It is a free shape with very little going on with the bottom. When something was designed, prototypes were shipped to ten riders from pro’s to shop employees. Feedback was then pooled, and out came the Faction board. A continuous rocker line, very small molded fins, and subtle rails create a shape that glides across the water effortlessly. A four-fin speedster that gives you two boards in one, a wake killer as well as a free shape for pressing in the flats. Get to your local shop and check out the top dressing. Using a fabric material and a metal stamp, this is a board that will surely impress. Check out all the new Faction products, get to your dealer to demand the package. (more…)

2008 Pure Wakeboard Reviews

CWB Pure WakeboardsCWB Pure Wakeboards

Information:
The Pure with Torq boots was the best selling package in the industry last season. Not only is it an amazing shape, packaged with the industry shattering hinge boots, and rocking a killer graphic but the price of the package will make you ask “are you sure?” We all know what the Torq’s will do for you. A boot that all of your friends can share, they can swim in and out of them with ease, and they look killer. Now partner those with a shape that was formed around a past Absolute shape which we also all know is rad. So we now have a shape paired with boots…both of which rock. A great board for the beginner and intermediate, the Pure is a softer board allowing for a bit of a mellower ride. Tracks well, edges easy, and pops consistent thanks to the three basics that every board in this genre needs. Large molded fins, a deep bolt on fin, and long channels for extra tracking. The Pure gets the tri-fecta and will give you that perfect ride. (more…)

CWB Kink WakeboardsCWB Kink Wakeboards

Information:
A huge part of the wake market is the package program. With the innovation of the product growing leaps and bounds yearly, it makes sense for a rider to snatch up a new deck and boots every season. With this in mind, we have created packages that cater to every riding style as well as every budget. The Kink board hits the market for the aggressive rider. It is a stiff shape that turns fast and reacts quick off the wake. Boasting long based molded fins as well as a small edge fin for extra bite on edge, the Kink when paired with the Faction and Vapor boot, is a money package for a beginner through advanced rider. A center spine, a mellow three stage rocker line, and a thinned tip and tail will deliver a ride that will carry your riding wherever you want it. (more…)

Bella CWB WakeboardsBella Womens CWB Wakeboards

Information:
The perfect beginning to a girls professional wakeboarding career. The Bella is a small board that has a grown up shape. Most all kids boards are designed to be very mellow even when the kid progresses and starts to take their riding to the next level. Not the Bella! We have built a shape that not only creates a stable platform on which to learn, but also will carry that small girl on her first big wake to wake jump. Not too small and not too big, the Bella will work years, not months. The Bella also has edge fins that help teach the beginner to hold their edge through the wake, a bolt on fin to teach body position and comes partnered with the patented Hinge boots. No other girls wakeboard has this much to offer. Girls, your time has come. (more…)

2008 Sapphire WakeboardsSapphire Womens CWB Wakeboards

Information:
Attention ladies that rip! We introduced the Sapphire last season as the demand for the high end shape for ladies grows year after year. This season is no different. We carry forward the Sapphire as well and have created a new larger size to compliment the complete Diamond collection of products for the women. The Sapphire board combined with the new Ember boots will hand you a package that not only performs like a pro level deck, but looks stunning too. The new heart breaker pattern used throughout the Diamond collection screams style. The Sapphire board uses two long based molded fins and a bolt on fin to compliment the ride. We have also thrown a center spine down the middle to break up those landings when the ladies are cruising their moves into the flats like the Hoffman sisters. We also added some extra glass to stiffen up the ride, shaped in a cupped rail for edging, and trimmed some thickness out of the tip and tail. What was created has been called “the most aggressive yet user-friendly shape created for the female rider”. Check out the Sapphire. Your stylist will approve. (more…)

2008 Urban Wakeskate Reviews

February 21st, 2008 · No Reviews · Add a Review

Urban Gator WakeskatesUrban Gator Wakeskates

Information:
The Urban series has been updated and revamped with new rail lines and concave for 08. This year we also gave the board 19 plys for more weight and strength, up from 17 last year. What makes the Urban Series unique is the Nylon bottom deck. Not only does the nylon bottom make for an extremely durable skate base that protects the wood, but it also makes for a more durable graphic because the design is sublimated to the inside of the clear nylon before it is molded to the board. Nylon base material is commonly used on wakeboards and snowboards and offers exceptional durability, Ideal for sliders, rails and any type of apparatus you would like to slide.

The Reaper Gator WakeskatesThe Reaper Gator Wakeskates

Information:
The REAPER is a new Skate in our line for 08. The Reaper just like the curve of his sickle has an aggressive arched rail line with a wide center and narrow tip and tail. This rail line makes for a faster cut into the wake. We made this board with 19 ply’s for more weight and control for all those flip tricks. Add this, with a 3-stage rocker and it makes for a perfect wake oriented skate. A sick little graphic with an all natural wood look, at a great price that cant be beat – this board is going to stand out at any shop but will look much better on your boat.

2008 Pro Model Wakeskate Reviews

Pro Model Gator WakeskatesPro Model Gator Wakeskates

Information:
The Pro Model is one of Gatorboards most unique wakeskates to date. The Pro Model was the first ever-wood concave skate to have cnc-machined channels in it for wake-to-wake skating. This year we upgraded the design again and molded similar channels in the board so that the channels would be much more durable. We also used a Nylon base making it more durable for rails and jibbing. The Pro Model will come with clear grip, so if you are feeling artistic you can customize the top before you apply the grip. Have fun!!

2008 Drew McGuckin Wakeskate Reviews

Drew McGuckin Gator Wakeskates

Information:
Drew McGuckin Gator WakeskatesI would say my new board; a 41-inch wood wakeskate by Gatorboards is way better then last years #1 board on the market. That board was the Drew McGuckin 41 from Gatorboards. So if you want the baddest wakeskate on the planet you better go to the store and buy two!! I made last years model a half-inch wider all the way through for better wake to wake stuff, because I hear that wake to wake stuff is what everybody wants to see. Back to my board, I also totally changed the concave throughout the top deck. I brought the side concave all the way to meet the kick of the tail and nose. I also made the tip and tail more blunt to add more top deck to stand on, more surface area if you will. My new board also comes with clear grip tape, my own personal touch. The grip will not come on the deck. That way kids can draw their own graphics for the top or put their favorite stickers on, then put the grip over them. There will be holes for 6 fins. Nose and tail sliding fins and your traditional center fin. The sliding fins come with the board so you get everything in one shot from your local board shop. This board also comes programmed to do all the baddest flip tricks you can stand, all you have to do is go buy one.

2008 Impalla Wakeskate Reviews

Impalla Gator WakeskatesImpalla Gator Wakeskates

Information:
We have come up with a team wakeskate called the Impalla. This baby is compression molded with a PBT base and infinite wrap technology for a long life of hitting sliders. Its super light construction, Hybrid rocker line and its beveled rail makes it easy to ride. The foam top feels like grip tape without all the scraped legs. The Impalla is very forgiving from the elements that wakeskating has to offer. The graphics are always fun with refreshing old school flavor. The reason we named it the Impalla is that the board has that comfortable feel that and old school Impalla would have. So if you want a long lasting easy ride for your wakeskate then you should role out a new Impalla and take a cruise.
