Coming 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. The Vinyl comes in one size, 108, and ships with two aluminum shank fins.

    There is not one thing to not like about this board. And I am not one to necessarily like hyperlite boards but this boards concave shape and great pop made for a great overall wakeskate.

    I was skeptical about this board at first but all bs aside this board is incredible. And all things considered you have to get one. For anyone that is hesitant to spend the funds to add another board to their wakeboarding lineup wakeskating has a feel all to its own.

    When I first saw this board all that I could think was that it was thick and clumsy looking but after you try it you will see that the design has a point. Not all completely light boards can have the feel of this wakeskate.

    It has butter pop for hitting sliders and rails and the extra weight gives me the shuv to get pop for some great spins, although you may want to avoid getting hit by the board – shoes well advised.

    My favorite wakeskate hands down. I absolutely love this board – it is coo to finally be able to pop wake to wake free from the board. I have played around with a couple boards and this one is more stable and tracks way better. Great pop and soft landing combination, this has to be the easiest board I have ridden.
