Since winning the WWA World Championship in 1999, Chad Sharpe has been synonymous with coming out of the turn - tire squealing, hard charging up the wake, FAST rides. This wakeboard has sharper rails from end to end creating more effective edge with the water, rockerlines that mimic the natural transition of the wake carrying more speed up the kicker, and fin placements that allow the board to react as quickly as the rider can control it. New for 2011 is the Viva setting more contact points in the water than any board in our line. This ride is nearly 1/2" wider in the belly with a similar tip/tail width vs. his previous boards - the additional sidecut just adds to the speedy vortex of Shangri-La Chad was looking for. Effortless high speed carves and a comparable hybrid rockerline to his previous models - a board you never have to worry about keeping up with you.
