Why is it so hard to find O'brien pro model boards and bindings? I am currently riding the 2007 O'Brien Black Xenon and love them, but they are starting to fade. I was thinking about replacing them with a pair of the new Vice bindings and can't find them anywhere. No local shops stock O'brien and I can't find them for sale on the web anywhere. Anyone know where they can be purchased?

Try Overton's and Bart's. They both carry the O'Brien line.

overton's and bart's have 2008 and older. I found the decade packages on ebay and that is it but don't know how legit that is since no one else stocks 2009 obrien. I can't find the vice anywhere.

Robert, I don't believe they are available at this time but I could be wrong.

Got a Bart's catalog in the mail the other day and both the Vice and Decade boards and bindings were in there. I just checked their website and nothing?

Robert, give Obrien a call at 800-662-7436 and see if they can provide any info on where to pick up a pair.

I have been riding the Xenon's the last two years and love them! May have to try the Decade. Love the old Cartel and hated the Natural. Does Obrien have a good balanced board similar to the Watson?

Hey Guys,
We have Decade boards in stock, but haven't had much demand for Obrien pro model boots. If you want to email the shop @ sales@perfski.com or call and ask for Brian @ 407-859-7544 we can find out if they've even received them for 2009. Rich if you want a 44, I'm showing to in stock that can go. Heres a link: http://www.perfski.com/Wakeboards/2009-Obrien-Decade.html

Bill @ Perfski.com

Gene, check out the Player. It may be just what you're looking for.

Thanks Jay, will do.

WTF happened to the Xenon's this year? All Pro model bindings are CT? Dammit ... guess I gotta find another brand of bindings now.

I now have three sets of Xenon's and am not sure if you read the posts about the Zues' or about narrow feet but mine are freak like and I cannot wear CT boots, period. They just will not work for me. :-( I am VERY sad I do not have an open toe option similar to the Xenon.

Just gonna keep riding the Xenon's until they fall apart or hope that they come with something OT for 2010.

BTW Andy. How can I get the little white inserts that come in the footbed of the Xenon's?
Old    jordan ballard (slaysher)      Join Date: Jun 2006       06-03-2009, 10:53 AM Reply   
GENE, we'll have open toe boots for sure.

it just our riders wanted some CT in the line-up for 2009 & 2010

i agree the Xenons are pretty rad and i ride them a lot when i go out, we'll have something similar this year though.

Rich,

If I would have known you were on Roosevelt Memorial weekend you would have been able to demo a 144. I have gotten a bunch of guys over here converted to O'Brien and they are loving the Decade.

Let me know if you head this way any time soon and I will get you out on one! If not, there is always Pateros.

Gene. Im with you. I have a size 15 foot and the XXL xenons fit my foot like a glove, i have already riden the hell out of them but i can get anything else close to them. My xenons are comin apart at the seems and are already turning brown from the river water but they are still super comfy.

ahhhhhhhh pateros that magical dreamland somewhere in southern New Mexcio, or is it Eastern Illinios?

Anyway, Jakober! I'm looking for some new open toes boots. I have CTs already.

Thanks Jason.
We'll probably be back on Roosevelt before the summer is out. If I haven't ridden (or bought) a Decade by then, I'll take you up on that. Either way,I'll get in touch so we can meet up.
Or yeah, Pateros. Although I don't have a passport, so I may not be able to go there this year. Plus, the water's always choppy and infested with monkeys. Not anything I want to experience again.
