2014 Ronix Parks Modello Wakeboard
Ronix is calling the 2014 Parks Modello wakeboard, with its camber rocker profile which is a first for the wakeboard industry, the biggest innovation in wakeboard design since the original Wake Tech Flight 69 twin tip wakeboard.
That's a pretty high bar, but here's the thing, it's not purely marketing hype. What we mean is, camber may honestly be one of the biggest things to happen to wakeboarding in recent memory. The impact is immediate the first time you lift out of the water on the 2014 Ronix Parks Modello. This wakeboard feels completely neutral and stable, while at the same time offering a very quick edge-to-edge feel, a combination that is almost eery.
What is camber? Every wakeboard has a rocker profile, the amount, and shape of curvature the board has built into it. Up until now, all wakeboards have a had different variations of rocker; continuous, 3-stage, hybrid, etc. The 2014 Ronix Parks Modello wakeboard is unique in that while it does have traditional rocker at the tip and tail (that necessary for the board to ride through the water), the section of board under the rider's feet actually curves the opposite direction, which is called camber. Skis and snowboards have had camber for decades, but this is a new addition to the wakeboard industry, and when used correctly, as in the Parks Modello wakeboard, the results are eye opening.
Forget what you know about Parks Bonifay's past pro model wakeboards, the 2014 Parks Modello is confidence inspiring for nearly every intermediate and higher rider. We have the camber profile to thank for that, which allows you to ride with your weight evenly distributed front to back. That results in a more anatomically correct position on the board, which mean your body is primed to perform.
The 2014 Ronix Parks Modello wakeboard is unique in that it gives us a glimpse into what the future of wakeboarding will look like. Obviously not every board will have camber, but this isn't just a gimmick, it's a legitimate improvement, and one that we'll see in many different forms in the years ahead.
