2011 Liquid Force Shane Wakeboard Review


The 2011 Shane Bonifay Pro Model

Like all Liquid Force Pro models this year, Shane’s Pro model features our Carbon X construction. Unique to Shane’s board, the Carbon X pattern is in a plus minus 45 degree going through the center of the board. It has little narrower bands than on Harley’s board. Shane wanted a focused pop, a little sweet spot in the center, keeping the board stiff right between his feet but allowing the tips to flex as much as possible. Shane’s board has an aggressive three stage rocker which gives it that straight up pop and the hang time that Shane loves. The base features a triple concave. Now it is double through the center, flowing into a triple concave out the tail, with the center concave being wider than the two outside concaves. It gives this board a focused ollie pop. You have a little sweet spot right behind the edge of your back foot and when you push down, this board pushes back giving you tons of lift and pop. All of this water flows through a quad fin molded N-fin set up for unreal hold with minimum drag. Shane’s board has really got to be ridden and tested to love. Another thing about Shane’s board is you will notice there is no channel running through the edge of the board. Shane wanted his board really loose through the middle of the board. It has real neutral handling and is real slider friendly. He has the lifted variable edge rail running through the center, getting progressively sharper as it comes out the edge of the board for all of the bite and hold. Killer graphic on the top is a touch of Shane. This comes combo’d with Shane’s signature binding.
