With a full-length spine, explosive three-stage rocker and Vector Net Top, the Intent epitomizes a performance-boat board. It’s fast, insanely responsive, has the explosiveness of a rocket ship, and lands softer than an astronaut doing jumping jacks on the moon. Riding flat, it’s loose and lively. Put it on edge, and it morphs into an all-out wake-charging machine. From this feeling on the water to the explosiveness off the wake, the Intent is in a league of its own, capable of elevating everyone’s perception of what’s possible on a board. MSRP: $459.99.
