When you've been a pro wake boarder as long as Cobe, you learn a few things about what works on the water. Cobe's boards have a ride and feel that matches well with Cobe's style…smooth. With molded in fins and cupped rails these boards really hold an edge. For a looser feel remove the center fin and go finless. A small flat spot in the center of the board gives great pop off the wake and makes for a smooth sliding surface. Be like the Mikker and try one out!
