Covid-19 Statement View Notice >

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.

Slalom Ski Settings

Setting up your slalom ski with the proper setting is essential to the ski performing the way it should. Here are the factory setting for some of the latest O’Brien slalom skis. The binding measurement is taken from the tail of the ski to the heel of the front binding. Fin settings are also critical. Here is a link to show you the basic adjustments you can make with your fin.

The appropriate board size depends on weight, skill level,
and volume of the board. The more you weigh, and the
lower your skill level, the bigger the board you’ll need.

• One liter of volume floats one kg weight.
• In order to factor in your skill level, multiply your Skill
Lever Factor x Your Weight in kilograms to get your
recommended volume in liters.
• 1 Lb. is approximately equal to .45 kg.
• When in doubt, lean to the next board size up.

SKILL FACTOR:
Beginners = 2
Intermediate = 1.7
Advanced = 1.3
Calculating Board Volume:
(Your Weight in lbs. X .45) x Skill Factor = Target Volume
Example:You are a beginner and you weigh 195 lbs.
(195 lbs. X .45) x2 (Skill Factor) = 175.5
Your board should have a minimum volume of 175.5 liters.
