Hyperlite Prizm Womens Wakeboard Review

If you are looking for a women’s wakeboard then we would recommend the Hyperlite Prizm Women’s Wakeboard as a great board, but it does have a higher price tag than some  other wakeboards on the market.  If you are an experienced rider, we don’t think you would regret the investment.

Variable Edge Design

The Hyperlite wakeboards are shaped and designed by experts and professionals. The Prizm wakeboard is designed by Greg Nelson as a female version of the Murray Pro, having a similar shape, but with added Satin flex.  This board is designed to provide an easy ride, with a more supple flex to perform well for the best riders.  

 

The variable edges on the Hyperlite Prizm Women’s Wakeboard are more rounded between the inserts and sharper towards the tip and tail.  This design ensures a responsive board providing great edge hold when required and still offering forgiveness as needed.  

Biolite 3 Core Material

To make the Prizm Wakeboard lightweight, Hyperlite utilised the Biolite 3 core for this boards construction.   This material was invented by the Hyperlite team to look and feels like wood for a lightweight board with incredible durability.  Many people prefer wakeboards constructed with wood  because it is perfect for generating more speed and offers a great feel on the water.  The Biolite 3 core has a similar feel and performance as wood but is a more durable material. 

 

The Biolite 3 core combined with the subtle 3-stage rocker, means there is not flat spot in the middle of the board.  The result according to Hyperlite is colossal boost off the wake, perfect for the experienced rider.  It’s also a great in-between board to familiarise yourself with before trying a pure 3-stage rocker.
