Hyperlite Wakeboards UK
Hyperlite Wakeboards are the industry leader and pioneer behind the wakeboard movement. You only need to look at the history of wakeboarding to see that the longest-standing brand in the sport is in fact Hyperlite.
Hyperlite crafted their first compression molded wakeboard back in 1990. Founder Herb O'Brien (of O'Brien Watersports fame) then owned the water ski company H.O. Skis and developed the first Hyperlite on Lake Radar in conjunction with some of the best surfboard shapers in Hawaii. It was an instant success.
Herb continued to refine the wakeboard and later versions had a thinner profile, sharper edges, and would carve more like a slalom water ski. He also developed dimples on the bases of the boards to break up water adhesion and give the boards a faster and looser feel and softer landings. All of these advancements were possible thanks to the revolutionary compression-molding process developed by Hyperlite.
Since then Hyperlite have continued to innovate, being the first to the market with molded in fins, lace-up bindings, PVC core wakeboard, ABS sidewalls, and wood core flex boards to name but a few. Hyperlite has always been, and continues to be, a true pioneer in the wake industry. As the sport of wakeboarding grows, Hyperlite grows with it, evolving their brand and continually creating revolutionary products.
