Design details


With its Wood Core, DuraRail Sidewalls, and Impact Base, the Fade was built with durability in mind and will keep you charging season after season.


Designed specifically for the cable park, the Press-Pass exaggerates the transitions on the 5-Stage rocker creating distinct flat spots at the tip and tail, underneath the bindings, and in the middle of the board. These flat spots generate an explosive ollie and provide a more stable base to land, balance, and press on rails, kickers, and other park features.

100% Sustainable Paulownia wood core for minimum weight, maximum durability, and an organic feel. Our wood core ensures your board will withstand seasons of shredding your local park or favorite winch spot.

Specific layups designed to flex in just the right places, giving you a board that explodes off the water, softens landings, and presses features with ease.

Impact resistant urethane rail that runs around the entire edge of the board; protecting the core from any hazard you throw its way.

Fully sintered high-density polyethylene base material that holds up to seasons of shredding rails, kickers, ledges, and whatever else you muster up.

All O’Brien wakeboards are equipped with industry standard 6 millimeter inserts so if TSA loses your hardware or it falls off the dock… Borrow some from your buddy and keep shredding.
