2002 Cassette Micro Cassette
It was a simple idea, yet Thomas Horrell's idea of making a true skate for the water is what enabled the sport of wakeskating to take off. Grip tape and wood, that's all it was, but these decks have made perhaps the biggest impact and change our sport has experienced to date. Wakeskating is the future and if the Cassette crew has anything to do with it, it's going to be exciting. There will be many imitators, but there will always only be one Cassette.
