COVID-19 and O’Brien: In the midst of everything going on, O’Brien Watersports is still up and running. As some of you know, our headquarters are based just outside of Seattle in Snoqualmie, WA and on March 23rd the governor mandated a stay-at-home order. Prior to the announcement, we made the necessary changes so that we are capable of working from home, which is what we’ll be doing until the situation improves. All of our daily operations are still functional with the exception of customer service being able to receive phone calls (if you leave a message, they will call you back). Alternatively, we recommend that you reach out to them via email at CustomerService@obrien.com for faster and more efficient assistance.
For anyone who has placed orders recently, there is no need to worry. We are still capable of processing and shipping orders from our warehouse in Texas and will continue to do so until further notice. As things change, we will do our best to keep you informed. Until then, stay safe and we can’t wait to see you back out on the water.
2019 O’Brien Ropes & Handles
Whether you are a “weekend warrior” who loves to do everything behind the boat or a passionate wakeboarder, wakesurfer, or skier demanding the highest performance, there is an O’Brien rope and handle that will fit your needs. There are definitely a wide variety of ropes out there. Some are designed to be more of an “all-purpose” rope, that work well for skiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding, while others are more sport specific so you can get the most our of your ride.
All of our wakeboard rope and handle packages feature a 15-inch bar with a non-stretch line, which is exactly what you want for wakeboarding. There are plenty of options for grip materials, line lengths, and coatings and we are sure you’ll find a combo to fit your needs.
O’Brien waterski ropes and handles cover a range from the Combo Trainer Rope, which makes it easier to learn how to get up on skis, to our USA Waterski sanctioned O’Brien Pro Handle and Mainline and everything in-between. O’Brien also manufactures a line of floating ropes for easier visibility out on the water.
If wakesurfing is your thing you’ll be happy to hear that tying knots in your rope to find the sweet spot of the wave is now a thing of the past! Every one of our wakesurf ropes has an integrated 4′ multi-loop section for the ultimate in fine-tuning rope length. These ropes are paired with a variety of comfortable grip options, so you can keep blasting turns on the wave all day long.
The O’Brien tube ropes are also second to none with ropes designed specifically for the size of the tube being towed. Plus there are a variety of colors to choose from, so you can add your own personal style to it.
