O'brien Shota Valhalla Wakeboard 2020
For Value Priced Performance
Like several of our athletes, Shota chose the Valhalla as his go-to board due to its reliable shape and consistent pop off the wake. With the majority of his efforts focused on pushing what’s possible on a wakeboard and competing at the highest level, we decided it would be great to supercharge a Valhalla and give him that extra boost he needs; hence the limited edition Shota Valhalla. We modified the construction of the standard Valhalla to include a carbon fiber Vector Net running tip to tail. This strengthened the board and maximized its torsional rigidity. From a performance standpoint, Shota swears that the board feels faster and lighter on the water, more explosive off the wake and that the landings feel incredibly solid when boosting out into the flats. It’s going to be exciting to see what Shota puts together on his new deck. With the way he rides, we have no doubt that we are going to have to keep picking our jaws up off the floor this year.
Similar to our Continuous Rocker but with a more kicked up tip and tail, resulting in more vertical pop than a Continuous Rocker and more predictability than a 3-Stage
Feather Core reduces the board’s swing weight for more midair control, while simultaneously maintaining its profile up the face of the wake for maximum pop
“Chevron” shaped channels molded into the tip and tail of the board reduce drag for faster edging and a cleaner release off the wake
VARIABLE BEVELED EDGE
Rolled edges for a smoother, catch-free ride, sharpening at the tip and tail for more bite
MOLDED IN FINS
Quad molded in fins.
Provides a high level of break and buckle resistance while maintaining a natural and lively flex pattern.
