Rave Sports believes that they didn’t exactly enter into the water sport industry, but instead that they created it. When looking back over the years, in many regards their exactly right. Wakeboarding has become an international phenomenon and is only expected to get bigger as we look towards the next few years. Rave Sports wakeboards gives consumers a great deal of flexibility and versatility which have helped them appeal to a very wide user base.

One of their more recent wakeboards is the Rave Sports Lyric 141cm Wakeboard which comes in with a very modest price tag. Since being introduced, this high performance wakeboard has become a fan favorite for riders looking forward to a great deal of tricks. Being a figment within the water sport industry isn’t exactly their intent as Rave Sports continues their trend on reinventing it.

3-Stage Rocker and then Some

When looking at wakeboarding, any rider must first understand what exactly they want to get out of the wake. Some riders look for extreme jumps, others look for more of a relaxing and comfortable ride, and of course, there are those who look for everything in between and then some. The Rave Sports Lyric wakeboard gives you the chance to get everything you want thanks to the 3-stage rocker and a slew of many other features.

The 3-stage rocker allows the rider to get maximum air with tricks and other jumps. Further complimented with the rounded center and sharp tip and tail, the Lyric gives the rider the ability to cut hard while providing an extremely soft landing.

Custom Fit Thanks to the Advantage Boots

Adult riders will be able to get a custom fit thanks to the Lyrca lined Advantage Boots. These are of the highest quality when looking at wakeboards as it’s all about the ankle support which ultimately allows the rider to get the best ride possible. When looking at cutting, tricks, and even landings, the boots are almost as important as the board itself.
