BoardCo is the go to online shop for boarders of all types. From mountains to lakes and rivers BoardCo has been "supplying awesomeness" since 1989. We were curious as to what consumers were buying the most. Mitch at BoardCo reveals his Top 5 Best Selling wake surfboards for 2014. The exciting thing to see is that these top brands are some of the pioneers of the sport since day one.
1. Phase 5 Danielo Diamond LTD Carbon
We are proud to introduce the 2014 BoardCo Limited Edition Phase 5 Danielo Diamond Wakesurf Board. This board is only available through BoardCo stores and is the board that 7x and current World Champ Drew Danielo is riding for the 2014 season.
The Diamond Danielo is our #1 selling wakesurf board for one reason - it is the best skim style wakesurf board ever designed.
The Limited Edition Diamond Danielo features a full carbon top sheet that gives the board greater speed and responsiveness on the water as well as the most durable board design possible. This board will take some serious abuse and still dish out the fastest profile of any board on the market.
This is the most responsive skim style board on the water, helping you pull off everything from your first 360 to Drew's signature backside 540 bigger-spin. This off-the-shelf model is the exact same construction and design as the one Drew is riding this season, not a "less-expensive" or lower end board with a similar graphic.
2. Inland Surfer Blue Lake
No other board delivers this level of performance for such a wide of range of weight and ability levels. One of the Inland Surfer original boards from thirteen years ago, there are more Blue Lakes in circulation than any other wakesurfer out there. The only board that can help you throw in the rope your first time out, but also take you to new heights.
With an All-new kickpad and full-deck trimmed traction to complement the Vortex channel and Drop-V tail this is the best Blue Lake yet! Designed for huge aerials, sweeping bottom turns and surface spins this board will grow with you, the family and your entire crew!
3. Phase 5 Model X
The Model X is now in its third year as one of the finest boards in the Phase 5 lineup. This board is designed to offer top-of-the-line performance and unmatched surface (down the line) speed for larger riders. The Model X is a unique "fun shape” inspired board that offers a very stable surface area for the rider. We shaped the Model X with a single winged fish tail design for lightning quick drive and control in the wave.
The Model X comes equipped with the G10 2″ thruster fin setup. This fin configuration gives the rider maximum control, making it a great option for beginners and experienced riders alike. The Model X is 1″ thick and, wrapped in a full carbon lay-up, is the ultimate skim/surf hybrid!
New for 2014 is the addition of the smaller mini X built at 53” and geared up for the lighter rider.
4. Liquid Force Chase Sixer
The Sixer is back and better than ever! The 2014 model glides faster, is thinner, lighter, and is more alive than we could have ever imagined! Chase’s progressive moves and innovative surf style demand a board that can keep up with him and that is just what we’ve given him in his new model. Super versatile and full of quickness, the Sixer comes equipped with a unique fin setup so you can maximize its versatility and effectiveness behind the boat! Ride it as a quad with large sides and small rear fins for solid drive and thrust out of the wake. As a twinzer with small canard fins in front of the large sides, the board pivots quickly without spinouts. And for the loosest feel, the Sixer can be ridden as a twin fin that turns on a dime. Also new for 2014, a 4’4” for smaller rippers!
5. Byerly Volt
With the success of the Hazard series already under their belts, the team headed back to the shaping room to create the next generation of Byerly wakesurfers. Butch took many of the same features that made the first board such a huge success and turned them into the new compression molded Byerly Volt. The 4'10" Volt features minimal tail rocker and a dual concave base to make it a very fast shape that will keep riders driving into the sweet spot of the curl. The new tip fin is a great addition for advanced riders looking to have a little extra traction when riding the board switch. The tail fins offer a variety of mounting options allowing the board to be set up as a thruster, dual, tri or single fin set up making it perfect for any style of rider. Best of all, the Biolite compression molded construction provides superior durability without the hefty price tag of epoxy boards.
