How do you improve the winningest shape in wakeskate history? Easy, enlist the help Scott Bouchard. That’s right for 2008 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.

    Overall a great skate and a ton of natural pop. It has a great design for edging and great grip for flips and such. With its overall smaller design and more concave it has some great improvements over last years model.

    Where to start on the Catalyst – well it offers great shuvs, no drag and great for kickflips. Nothing negative really about it, just the normal slip outs you get from balancing wrong on a board with no fins, great fun – buy the Catalyst wakeskate – um yesterday.
