Wakeskate: Liquid Force Faction
The Ride: The nine-ply wood construction makes the Faction a highly responsive wakeskate.
The three-stage rocker with a huge sweet spot in the middle of the board helps you get more air for tricks. The variable edge on the board adds to the control. Just put on some wakeskate shoes or stand on the EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) deck, and you will have plenty of grip to start spinning the board around or flipping the board in midair. It comes in 40, 42 and 44 inches.
Face Plant: Wood boards typically break sooner than fiberglass, especially with frequent tricks on sliders.
