I never have. Dont know if I would trust a company that doesnt have actual photos of the product on thier site.

the website talks about the 2004 model board look at the description here <BR><a href="http://www.liberationsports.com/Products/wakeboards/l140.asp" target="_blank">http://www.liberationsports.com/Products/wakeboards/l140.asp</a>

Yeah I saw that too, looks like 2004 technology too.

ya. I don't know what their deal is. <BR>in the industry jobs section on here it looks like the owner is looking for reps.

andy_nintzel 02-17-2009 8:01 AM

maybe they are trying to make a comeback.

sidekicknicholas 02-17-2009 8:04 AM

it says wood in the core... I loved my old DNA Byerly, one of the best boards i've ever been on, I would certainly try one out.

Oh dang... are they coming back? They sponsored MWWF a few years back, but I thought they went under.... hhhhmmmm....very interesting

Josh Steele a pro wakeskater used to ride their skates.

I think these guys are out of Denver. Nice guy. Looked at the product line last may in person. Looks solid. Really liked the skates. They winch around here too.

I wouldn't hold my breath.

buffalow 02-19-2009 11:46 AM

This was a great product(still got one). the owner/designer is a famous wakeboard designer and had been with a stack of companies. He was doing wake and skate last time I talked. He is one of the few guys that really understand wakeboard design and went for simple designs. <BR> <BR>Hope he is still around.

wazzy 02-20-2009 9:51 AM

BUFFALOW!!! You are still alive man!? Dang son, who's gonna pop up next..... Jocko?????!!!!???

buffalow 02-20-2009 2:55 PM

I am still here every day playa. Just keep my mouth shut most of the time. Had a kid last year, and did shoulder surgery, so had my hands full. Rocking the '09 MB tomcat though which has been fun. I am still doing photo stuff for MB and the mags, but pretty low key. Good to see you here. Jocko is still around I hear, but us old timers get wiser and quieter!
