2005 O'Brien Valhalla 143
An idea that came to fruition, the Valhalla incorporates one of the most radical ideas in wakeboarding. Four aluminum removable Crook fins in each corner of the board are out of the way when you do not need them and when on edge they bite like no other! While the board is flat the rocker allows the Crook fins to be out of the water giving it a loose feel. The Valhalla has a variable-beveled edge which is soft in the midsection for a floaty feel when flat and a smooth ride in choppy conditions. The dual molded fins have a refined profile for minimal lift and drag. The Valhalla has a progressive rocker for the consistency of a continuous rocker and the pop of a 3-stage rocker. It also has a wide tip and tail for a strong riding platform and added pop off the wake. This board will not only send you hurling off the wake, but with a double concave hull makes for softer landings. The composite deck adds strength as well as reduces weight.

Sold my 04 143 parks for this thing and all i can say is that for me it was the right move. it’s way more forgiving on the landings and doesn’t feel like someone is taking a sledge to my knees on every jump. nice and floaty feel but grabs edge as soon as you plant. another fine board by o’brien!

This board is INSANE....the crook fins on the coners make ALL the difference...it pops HUGE lands soft and tracks on landings like no other board, it has very skatey feel on surface tricks but as soon as you roll it over onto edge, the crook fins grab and give you and unparalled edge control towards the wake. You owe it to yourself to ride this board, ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY VALHALLA!
