Key Features

  • Build Quality

TAO wakeboard is made of a Triax Glass Coated FSCTM certified Paulownia Wood CNC Core in a simple concave hull structure with edge and tip channels. This makes this an ultra-slim board with guaranteed endurance for extreme rides. It is a handcrafted wakeboard that features fairly aggressive three-stage rocker, liquid rail sidewalls, and its rear arch offers high maneuvers rate.

  • Design

Beyond its strength, the TAO’s shape gives it a tighter flex, with a sintered grind base with wider edges towards the center, giving more durability to a structure that already facilitates the water flow. The wakeboard is rounded scallop tail shaped – the first in the TAO series – with outstanding graphics that make the board something to admire. It is available in three sizes that share the same design in different colors: Tao 137 is yellow, 142 is red, and 147 is green.

  • Bindings

Tao has 6-position M6 inserts compatible with 6x bindings and any 6” bindings. This fit provides maximum comfort and support, keeping the rider well held on the wakeboard.
