Not down with the petroleum burning brethren of our other District?
Here is what makes the District Park the most universal aquatic park series ever conceived from our test tubes up at Radar Lake. This new deck is fabricated solely for the needs of cable. Yeah it has more surface area - that works better for the slower speeds of cable. Comes with built in flutes so you can ride this board finless with a cleaner lift with less pressure on air tricks allowing the board to flick out of the water and away from the rider easier. Even built with our most stout low friction exclusive sintered base, and delam free torsionally stiffer krypto cable wrapping the perimeter of the board. The flex unlike any other board in our dudes line. The magic carpet glass layup has a traditional construction on the base. If you soften up the layup too much on the bottom you loose a leverage point and the board becomes too inconsistent. Instead, we went to much lighter glass on the top. The result is one of the biggest advancements for cable riders. Without sacrificing any of a riders ollie power onto a
rail, you now have so much more control and exaggerated body positions once you are on a rail. The board has a bigger sweet spot for a truer nose or tail press, less swing weight leaving a kicker and just overall more feel on the water or synthetic concoctions.
The past ¼ of a century of shaping and redefining the methods to our madness in wakeboard designs and ingredients have resulted in the most feedback we have ever gotten out of a board with the Intelligent core. With the biggest budget we have had to work with, we came up with hands down the most advanced technology ever put into a deck giving the rider the most in feedback. Created by the rider that arguably goes bigger than anybody - former WWA World Champion Dean Smith - the Code 22 has the most explosive Intelligent Core in our line. Complete with a Maple stringer, Italian made machined foam, Mod Pour Foam, parabolic Paulownia wood, and another first - carbon fiber and glass working together as one. The liveliness of this new shape snaps the board into the rider as they leave the wake, without having the extra explosion of our Timebomb. This Code 22 delivers more top water speed, with a vertical sidewall, and is a faster version of Deans Mana rocker line from last year. We lost a little grip with the vertical profile so we ran parallel channels on the bottom for aided traction once on rail. Deans new board has a slightly wider tip/tail for a bigger sweet spot on take offs and landings and a new tapered profile creating more feel on the water and balance on rails. Find that moment - Code 22.
Bandwagon Air Core:
We have designed hundreds of wakeboards over the past several decades but never one remotely close to this. The start of the camber revolution, our latest in freeride shapes, the most amount of surface area and exaggerated tip/tail designs, along with the lightest core we have ever produced. The bandwagon project started out at first to see how wide is too wide? Boards have been roughly the same width for years. Then what happens if you crank the arc up on the tip and tail. Blending all of this with a surf shape rail design. The result was a One board feel on the water, with a bigger sweet spot and increased lift at slower speeds. Cable riders were amped on how much further they could take their presses on rails with the new super thin arc. From end to end a 146 cm prototype only had 138cm of running length on the water. So now you were getting the stability of a big board but a shape that only had the contact on rails found on a much shorter shape a big board with minimalist swing weight. Combine this with the feel and energy of our popular Phoenix Project series, and we thought we were done. Then our engineers thru something they have been experimenting with over the past couple of seasons camber. You never realize how much you ride in the backseat with a traditional rockerline until you ride an arc with multiple low points.
Before we keep typing - the board smells like pineapples. For real,
Bill bottled the scent and thru it in the tip - just the tip. A must in any riders quiver with a super fast skate inspired drift on the water and a new softer lay up for railslide cable park enchantment. The latest in progressive shapes for the next gen. of riders with bigger wakes, faster speeds, and longer rope lengths in mind. Bill created the speediest aquatic apparatus in our line with the most contact on the water. A growing trend is going towards faster boards. Having shapes that ride higher pushes the tail up, meaning less resistance, but also reducing the total rocker height creates more contact with the water. The new Bill has more top water momentum - so you dont have to work as hard. With most shapes you have to create an unneeded exaggerated angle to gain the speed to get lift - the added glide is naturally putting Bill and the boys faster off the wake. We also exaggerated the thinned out tip/tail of this new shape, creating more of a delayed recoil snap. This creates a smoother approach, building energy thru the tail of the board as you transfer over the wake, with more forgiving, predictable landings. One of our most versatile new shapes is also cable friendly. William on a budget with a new third generation softer Bill board.
