A grown-up board in kid’s size.
When designing this line of boards for men and women, we sure did not forget about the kids either; because they are the future champions.
When constructing a wakeboard for kids the greatest challenge is to fine-tune the flex so that it matches the rider’s weight and size. The mechanical requirements regarding the durability of the base and sturdiness of the entire construction are identical to those for grown-ups but one has to take into account the weaker force exerted by the rider. That’s the reason we focused mainly on the construction and modelling of the specific shape of the core profile. The result of our efforts is an extremely durable kid’s board that behaves similarly to the adult-sized ones. We’ve opted for a straight bottom, a mini wake outline and a soft profile so that the kids can shred as hard as their parents. To improve pop we’ve added a uni-directional carbon reinforcement in the middle.

3d machined woodcore
The core is CNC machined with an accuracy of 0.1 mm. This accuracy allows us to fine-tune the riding performance of our products.
Flat bottom contour – wake specific
A combination of 2D bottom and a mini wake outline.
Quadraxial fibreglass is woven from fibres with 4 different orientations. We have it custom-made so that we're able to fine-tune the board's flex and torsion by choosing the correct weight and thickness of the individual directions of fibres.
Lite Carbon power stringers
Reinforcements from uni-directional carbon fibres improve the flex along the long axis of the board. Their position, weight and width help to optimize the performance.
Rubber dampened edge
To improve shock absorption and increase durability, we use VDO anti-vibration rubber on the joints of the base and the ABS sidewall.
The sidewall is sanded in the 90:10 ratio where on its upper side the profile of the core gets thinner towards the edges to allow for quicker and tighter turning.
The sintered slide base was specially designed for wakeboarding and has a hardness of 9.2 × 10⁶ mol.
The inserts are placed in beech stringers passing through the core. Moreover, they are reinforced with quadraxial carbon fabric.
