The Liquid Force Quest Wakesurf Board is a surf style board with skim style crisp rails that bite into the wake for carving and release smoothly to make 360s easier to spin. The Carbon Innegra laminate top-sheet makes for a feather light ultra-responsive surfer that can handle the impact of your foot driving down when you're landing tricks. The forward mounted twin carbon honeycomb fins allow the Quest to break free easier at the top of the wave for the perfect cutback, and the kick pad on top of the board provides more control. Intermediate to advanced surf riders will appreciate the speed and maneuverability this board offers.

The Ronix Koal Classic Fish is a versatile wakesurf board with a timeless design, featuring a clean bottom, fast rockerline, and smooth rails.

Liquid Force Rocket:

We sell a lot of Liquid Force's Rocket because it is hands down, the best entry-level wakesurf board on the market. The Rocket provides unmatched stability and confidence for all riders. Its winged swallow tail design and single-to-double concave hull ensure a smooth, flowing glide. The Rocket can be ridden as a twin "fish" or a thruster (pop in that 3rd fin) for added drive. Its wide forebody and tail offer forward projection, helping surfers quickly find the pocket. The swallow tail design adds lift, ensuring smooth, efficient glide speed and minimizing bogging down on smaller wakes.

Original Price: $359.99

Hyperlite Shim:

The Hyperlite SHIM is a best of both worlds board that delivers skim and surf style riding for all riders aiming to elevate their skills and have a good time. The SHIM comes with 2 – 3.5” Torq Fins and 1 – 1.5” Fish Fin for versatility and adaptability to the rider. Newer to surfing? The tri-fin setup is ideal for surfers of all ability levels, as the 3rd (or center fin) provides additional stability and maneuverability. More experienced riders can remove the outside fins and ride just the center fin so the board breaks free with easy for skim style maneuvers. Its fast rocker and shorter profile provide excellent speed and maneuverability for rotational and air tricks. The DuraShell Construction offers the buoyancy of a high-end EPS board with the durability of a compression-molded shape. BONUS: Hyperlite makes a Shim Jr. that is a grom-sized version for kiddos looking to level up their riding with the same level of quality, durability, and flexibility to grow with the board.

Original Price: $599.99.

Hyperlite Condor:

A new board we're most excited for is Hyperlite’s Condor wakesurfer. This is a speedy hybrid shape perfect for more experienced surfers who enjoy both skim-style shuvits and snappy carves. The Condor offers the volume for a surf feel and a sharp rail at the tail for an instant skim response. Utilizing exclusive Varial foam and infused glass technology, this board is so strong, rigid, and lightweight that it doesn't even need a stringer. Made in the USA, it features Futures Fin Boxes and aerospace-grade, UV-resistant, and temperature-tolerant materials. It's an incredibly engineered board that maintains a lot of speed down the line with a wide tail for maximum pop off the wake and a nose shaped for added control while in switch position.
