For Professional and Advanced Riders

Sean O’Brien has been killing it on the Paradigm over the past few seasons, but after learning about our new technologies and materials, Sean and O’Brien collectively decided it was time for a new deck. As a result, Sean worked hand in hand with legendary shaper Chris Johnson to create the S.O.B.
With a soft refined flex pattern the S.O.B. is a pure park performer. However taken out of it’s park element and faced with a boat wake, and it’s flex dissipates energy upon landing allowing less abuse on your body and longer sets.
Sure a beginner will be able to turn laps on the board, but the S.O.B. was designed for maximum performance under advanced and pro riders. The subtle contouring along the rails provides, helps hold and edge upon approach, and the tip and tail channels help the rider effortlessly lock into nose and tail presses.
The S.O.B. was designed from the ground-up to take abuse from the best park riders in the world. Sure anyone can have fun cruising around the park and learning how to hit kickers and rails, but the S.O.B. is intended for professional and advanced riders looking for a board that can elevate their riding.
The S.O.B. is a strange animal. It was designed as a flexy bombproof park performer, then Sean O’Brien rode it behind a boat, came back with a huge smile on his face and we’re left scratching our heads…
“S.O.B. where’s this board best suited…”
The truth is Sean’s talents run deep, he could probably bolt some bindings on a 2×4 and kill it. We specifically design the S.O.B.’s flex pattern for rails, kickers, jibs and all the fun you’ll find at your local park or favorite winch spot. Sean personally digs this board style behind the boat as the flex stores energy and explodes off the wake, and as it flexes upon landing it dissipates energy, reducing stress on your knees / back and gives the rider more control.
PROGRESSIVE ROCKER – Is the result of combining lightweight foam and two balsa wood stringers that run from the tip and tail of the board that creates a durable, strong, snappy deck, allowing the board to flex yet always return to it’s natural rocker line.
FUSION CORE – Is the result of combining lightweight foam and two balsa wood stringers that run from the tip and tail of the board that creates a durable, strong, snappy deck, allowing the board to flex yet always return to it’s natural rocker line.
FLEX TECHNOLOGY – Like skateboards and snowboards O’Brien’s Flex Technology is constructed of multiple materials sandwiched together and framed by a urethane sidewall. This produces a board with optimum flex profiles and durability to last multiple seasons.
DELTA BASE – Providing the same advantages as dimples on a golf ball Delta Base technology is evidenced by the unique tip and tail features on the base of the board. These features cause the waters surface to break much like a stone skipping across the water’s surface resulting in a fast effortless approach into the wake.
DURARAIL – Is a high density durable urethane material that boarders the entire board. At 5.25 cm thick, Durarail sidewalls ensures your board will last through whatever you throw at it, cable parks, rocks, dock slides or etc…
IMPACT BASE – We once again pulled some inspiration from our snowboard brethren and our Impact Base is the same material you’ll find on the slopes of your local mountain. Built to withstand multiple seasons of shredding O’Brien’s the only manufacturer proud to stand behind wakeboards used on cable park features with a full 1 year warranty against not just manufacturer defects but breakage!
