I'm trying to come up with a comprehensive list of wakesurf board manufacturers for our Riders Choice awards, but it's a little tough because that are so many one-off garage manufacturers and so many cross-over surf company manufacturers. Anyway, can you list the companies you think should be in the running for Wakesurf Board of the year? Thanks.

Well the one-off garage manufacturers and cross-over surf company manufacturers are WAY more legitimate than the wakeboard manufacturers who make boards that just barely work. IMO Hyperlite, CWB, Ronix,Liquid Force and O'Brian do not belong on that list. The best thing they can do for the sport is stop making boards if that's what they're going to bring to the table.

Well said Wardo! Well said. I feel the same way about the boards they (the wakeboard co's) make, but seeing as they sell boards, I felt inclined to list them. I definitely don't feel they should be in any running for a board award

We got some Board's from some Wake Board company's and found that they sell some low tech board's from China that's for sure .Progression & innovation come from great mind's not Big profit hunter's

How about related companies like Fresh Air Exhaust? They don't make boards but FAE is all about surfing.

Larry Mann has a new offering "asylum boardz". He donated two to the 2009 National Wakesurf Championship.

Any board that you outgrow the 3rd time you ride is not what I consider a legitimate board and definitely should not be considered for wakesurfboard of the year. IMO that is an insult

wardovision, but you know it will probably win because thats what most of the wakeworlders own.

just like in best wakeskate a hyperlite board always wins but no wakeskaters will ride hyperlite skates.
