What happened to Phalanx? Are they done?
Haven't heard anything about them recently. Just curious.

Scott, unfortunately we had to shut things down a couple of months ago. We gave it everything we had collectively, but sometimes things just dont work out. Kind of bummed, we were really stoked on the product we had lined up to drop this year. Ricky is still riding a Phalanx CW, and he still has yet to break one. Erich builds one hell of a product!

I was wondering why I saw a few clips of Ricky G riding Hyeperlite gear.

My last two boards were a Company Recruit, and a Phalanx. Both have been the best quality boards I have ever been on. Sad to see them not make it....

My rope is a phalanx! It's pretty awesome! The stickers will remain on my snowboard helmet, lol.

Joe was very helpful last year in getting me on to a Phalanx board. It is too bad that they had to shut down. In any case, I have a CW 385 (138.5) I would sell or trade for another board if anyone is interested. Rode it behind boat for a year and decided to go with something bigger (142) so I am interested in selling or trading for a cable board.

Guys thanks for the kind words, it was a sad day when I found out our investor was pulling the plug on us and there wasn't too much I could do to save the brand. I felt We we're really on the cusp to have a solid year this year.
I have 2 CW boards (138 & 142) I'd sell if any one is interested PM me. I also have some never release Company wake boots left in stock that would match up nicely with the CW.

Side note I'm still involved in wakesports with Agenda Surf and I am currently working on launching a wakesurf board line called Vessel. as well.

Last year during the company's end of summer clearance sale my brother and I picked up "Vertex CGA" vests. Just wanted to show some love and say that we could not be happier. Such a wonderful product. I know somebody already brought it up but really if anyone has a chance to pick one up do it!

Ray is a great guy so any of you folk that need surf stuff go get it and support them. It will be impeccable products for sure. I am looking forward seeing these new surf boards!

Stoked to see that you guys were pumped about what we were doing with Phalanx! Brett,John,Mark,Vinny,Spencer,Riley, you guys rock. Your support means a lot!

And Mark is right on, Ray really knows his stuff, whether its designing boards and boots or softgoods. If you are looking for surf gear check out Agenda, Ray is bringing his A+ game to all those products as well!! The lineup of Vessel wakesurfers is going to be sick!

Again, cant say thanks enough to everyone that supported Phalanx!
