O’Brien has a wide product line and has been into the wakeboard industry for a long time. O’Brien’s wakeboards are one of the most sold wakeboards in the market. O’Brien has been making some really amazing wakeboards such as the O’Brien Format Wakeboard which is ranked among the top 100 wakeboards on amazon.com.

The Format Wakeboard has been designed and developed by the famous wakeboard rider Josh Sander. He had the goal of perfection. O’Brien Format Wakeboard was his achievement.

Minted Fusion Core

Josh Sander has designed the O’Brien Format Wakeboard. Earlier on, it was introduced in only one size type. However, when it got a lot of customer attention and the company saw many potential buyers for this wakeboard, they introduced it into 3 different sizes. The O’Brien Format Wakeboard is now available in three different sizes of 132, 137 and 142cm; all of which have different prices.

The board features a minted core. The top to bottom has been constructed by wood stringers which make the wakeboard stiff. This ultimately results in reduced overall volume and decreased weight as well. A stiff wakeboard from the middle makes it easier to control and resist other potential damages. The Fusion Core gives us a board that is up to 1.5 lbs

Progressive Rocker ReI

Unlike other wakeboards which have a standard 3-stage rocker, the O’Brien Format Wakeboard is a completely different one. How? Well, there is a re-invented progressive rocker. The centerline has been lifted off the board towards the tips. This results in extra pop with no loss of speed. The double concave middle section further softens the landings as well.

There are flexible tip and tail which further softens the impact on the landings. As always, O’Brien has used the signature delta base for a faster ride and a full-length rail which increases edge hold as well as better edge to edge transitions.
