I have an 07 Liquid Force Watson. It has a little sticker on it that says "Made in United Arab Emirates". Can anyone tell me more about this and where United Arab Emirates is located. I know Hyperlite has manufacturing over seas. Is this just LF's way of outsourcing?

Dubai!!

It's one of the richest oil countries on the planet, and one of the few that like the USA. Or should I say, they like us buying there oil!!!

Wow, I wouldn't have thought that area would be a wakeboarding mecca.. I do like the part about the pirates though. "Arrrrrrrrr mate I like the looks of the wakeboard booty on this boat. Now walk the plank or I'll swab the decks with the likes of ye!"
Plus I guess a portion of my profits either goes toward supporting the war against terror or the war against the war against terror. Not sure which one. Sorry if that was a bad joke, I have been told I have no taste.

I guess I contribute about $100 a week to those tournaments every week when I fill up my tank then.

From the horses mouth, they were contacted by a rich kid that is into wakeboarding and really wanted to be involved in the industry and they set up the manufacturing for the boards. Dubai has lots of money and is looking to difersify their economy away from relying on oil. Lots of Europeans and vacationing going on there. One of the richest European PGA tour stops is there. It is also where Tiger Woods will be building his first signature golf course (Lots of money for Tiger).
