2005 O'Brien Player 143
Daniel Watkins, one of those dodgy Aussie blokes, and the mad scientists here created his signature board back in 2003, The Player. Since then, they both have taken on the world! Winning back-to-back Australian Pro Tours and killing it here in the states, Daniel has shown he was born to be on the water. The ferocity of which he throws his double back off the double up coupled with his super clean style shows what the marriage of an incredible rider and board can produce.
"I am stoked on my 2005 Player board! It has molded fins which help me track on the way to the wake and a sweet double concave base to make the landings super smooth. I like to ride my board finless; I designed it to be ridden this way. The Player also comes with fins for a super steady ride. Ride the Player and you wont regret it! -Daniel Watkins
The Player Series has proven to be one of our most popular shapes to date. The Player has an aggressive 3-stage rocker and a fat midsection giving it an incredible explosion off the wake. With 8 molded-in fins for incredible tracking, the Player can be ridden with a center fin for a rock solid feel, or finless for a looser skatie feel. The Player delivers incredible edge hold with its cupped rails.
I LOVE THIS BOARD
