Does anyone know who is in control of the actual wakeboard construction process. Im guessing that someone with more knowledge about constructing wakeboards is doing this job. Is it the same guys from Badass, because someone told me this?

I know that somebody presses their board but I'm not totally sure who it is... might be the same places than double up and blindside or something like that... I'm pretty sure I heard that CWB is the only wakeboard company that presses their own boards...
I'm pretty sure someone here has more info about all this...

I know that a company named Triton Sports presses their boards. Which is the same company that makes doubleup and blindside. And then I heard that some of the molds from badass where passed on to Gator. But I have no idea how that worked out. There are a few Gator reps who bounce around this board, so Im sure they could go into much more detail.

NO. The man is keeping me down. Since I got the board, I have worked 14 hour days for almost 2 weeks straight including weekends. Work SUX! I plan on ripping it up this weekend even if I have to quit my job.

triton sports was pressing gator boards.
motion sports is still pressing gator boards.

motion sports bought out triton sports (doubleup, blindside, wet tech, hardline), as well as o'brien, liquid force, hyperlite, and i do believe buying cwb out is in the works.

so, in conclusion, motion sports owns the main players in the game.

as for badass, gator owns the molds to the old badass designs, which is still one of the sickest boards out there.
