Expanded Delta base

There are very few wakeboards with delta base technology. The O’Brien Valhalla wakeboard is one of those. It consists of an expanded delta base that helps to remove the water continuously from the tail of the board, therefore, helping in the quick popping off the board ahead without any friction.

This also reduces the rocker-induced drag and helps in an optimum release the wakeboard. Hence, providing the user with greater balance and helping him in the safe ride. People who already have experience of riding wakeboards feel very satisfied with this wakeboard as it makes their continuous wakeboarding experience memorable every time.

Progressive Rocker for Increased Durability

The progressive rocker with molded fins helps in easily predicting the tracking of the wakeboard and its safe landing on the water surface. This predictable rocker also provides a predictable lift off the rail helping you in planning your next trick on the board.

The molded fins are very thin helping the wakeboard in optimum control and minimal drag on the surface of the water. This feature also helps the wakeboard to have a firm grip on the water surface and the rider also feels quite easy to use it as the quad molded-in fins together with center-mount fins help the wakeboard in sticking those landings. Its wide base with full rail through the center of the board makes it much stronger and firmer. The firm initial push to the board is also granted by the rocker.
