2007 CartelThe Cartel Obrien Wakeboards

Brand new for ‘07, the Cartel is everything you have come to expect from O’Brien for hard hitting freestyle performance. Our 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.

DELTA BOTTOM– Chevron pattern at tips reduces drag on the water, makes the board release more cleanly.
V-SPINE– The Cartel has a small center spine, perfectly sized to smooth out the landings without sacrificing the board’s performance.
VARIABLE BEVELED EDGES– Soft in the middle for smooth turns, sharpen towards the tip for incredible edge hold.
FULL LENGTH STEP DOWN RAIL– Low volume rail lets you sink the edge easily for superior line tension.
SUPER THING PROFILE– CAD analyzed geometry for the lightest board profile available.

    An ass kicking addition to the Obrien line of wakeboards. It carries a ton of speed and throws you off the wake with ease yet is still forgiving on landings.

    I always felt in full control when riding this board even performing surface tricks for the first time and releasing off the wake into spin tricks.

    This board carried a high price but is a great board that is very light with madd pop. All this adds to some great hits off the wake and ease into a huge spin.

    Not for those who are looking for a simple slow ride, it is super fast and glides smoothly across the water.
