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.

    This year brought on the transition over to the Faction after riding an Absolute for years. With a surprising amount of pop of the wake for a continuous rocker board and much softer landings.

    Where other boards would skirt out when hitting the kilter this board absorbs the impact for butter landings.

    For the money I really feel this is a solid board that cannot be beat. I was unexpedidly suprised at how easy it was to ride this board. It is great for beginners and aggressive riders alike – it is great for surface tricks with decent pop and smooth landings. The only fault really to speak of or point out would be the fact that it is a bit on the heavy side and probably best used in flat water.
