2004 Liquid Force Substance 142
Although it may seem crazy, we still consider Shawn Watson an up and coming rider. Not that we dont think hes already made it, but we just know that his potential on the water and in the design room are still untapped. Hes on a roll and is taking over the reigns of our sport and going with it. We already think hes the best wakeboarder in the world on most days, but mention anything like that to him and hell say, NahIve got a lot of learning to do. The humble kid from south Florida has grown up with LF and hes continuing to give us board designs and ideas that will continue to shape the future of our line, and of wakeboarding. Hell be a leading part of our family for years to come.
Watsons Substance series was our top seller last year, for good reason. The board not only rides well if youre a pro, it also works well for the rest of us. Its designed for the rider looking for loads of vertical pop, smooth transitions and a responsive yet mellow approach to the wake.
There are some changes to Shawns ride this year. Hes added some thickness to the nose and tail for strength and also ran the molded in side fins a bit farther back on the tail for extra control. The sizes have changed as well, fitting more into what we think is the perfect size Matrix. Weve basically taken his perfect board and made it more perfect.
i definately recommend this board and i give it a 5 out of 5. I like to ride with the middle fin off it more fun and good for slider and flips.
