You've no doubt heard the expression "a carpenter is only as good as his tools." The same idea applies to wakeboarding. That board you bought three summers ago just isn't going to take you as far as a 2017 board that features the latest in design and lightweight, responsive materials. The collection of next-level gear on these pages will help you pop a little higher, spin a little faster, move a little more freely, and look a little cooler. Now, let's be clear. Are we saying that you need the latest, greatest gear to have fun on the water? Not for a second. Nor are we saying that one of these wakeboards or wakesurfers will make you the next Mike Dowdy or Keenan Flegel. What we are saying is that this new gear could very well make it easier for you to stomp that trick you've been chasing or add a little extra swagger to your stalefish. In short, it has the potential to make you a slightly better version of yourself on the water tomorrow than you are today. And isn't that what we're all after?
