Cassette Wakeskates, the originators of the wood wakeskate, the concave wakeskate and a-symmetrical shapes, announces that a patent application has been filed for Cassette's latest creation, The "Bi-Level" Deck. Thomas Horrell and Bryan Dawley co-conceptualized this new project, in which Cassette will be offering three pro models in the 2005 line. Danny Hampson, Aaron Reed, and Thomas Horrell will lay claim to this unbelievable new deck that generates energy and pop that has never been felt on a wakeskate before. "Aaron Reed, Danny Hampson, Bryan Dawley, and I have been extremely involved in the testing of this deck and I can't believe the results we're getting," quotes Thomas Horrell. "We've been playing around with hydrodynamic concepts for the last two years and figured out that it wasn't about using the surface of the water to get more pop, it was about using leverage between the boards and snapping the tail of the top deck onto the harder top surface of the bottom deck", quotes Bryan Dawley. 1/8th inch mounts attach the top and bottom decks together in two mounting areas, which cause a fulcrum effect that, accelerates the board's lift from the water.
