The Onset's top sheet is shaped straight from a skateboard. It has three layers of poplar laminate formed with a true concave top as well as large kick tails. It has a seven-ply bottom flat deck for the stiffness needed to keep the rocker pattern in shape. In between the layers is a tri-density foam pad that creates the rebound needed to add the snap off the wake. The Onset is good for any level of wakeskater from beginner to pro with the use of the optional fins.
