Wakeboards and CWB are directly related. With an increase in trend of wakeboarding, many companies including CWB are making more and more wakeboards for users. Even though these wakeboards are quite expensive as they cost around $300-500 dollars usually.

Despite the high price, the trend in wakeboarding is consistently increasing. CWB has a wide range of wakeboard for intermediate to professional riders. The Faction 2016 is a development to the earlier Faction wakeboard and a much improved model.

All New 2016 model

Faction 2016 is now an improved model for the earlier Faction wakeboards designed by CWB. Coming with added versatility but maintaining the amazing experience and feels, the Faction is a great choice for customers. It comes in two different sizes of 138cm and 142cm both of which can be used by intermediate to advanced level riders. The maximum weight range is also improved to 160 pounds maximum.

Fast, Maneuverable and Amazing!

With a shallow channel through the center of the board towards the tip and tail of the wakeboard, the wakeboard becomes fast and maneuverable as well. You get the perfect grip on edges as well. With a shallow center spine, landings are a bit soft while also lifting the board flat on features.
