The Viva takes us back to our roots of board design - a hard rail, sharp bevel and increased sidecut for riders that don't have a lot of extra time. A board you gain confidence with as you get on the gas. Chad's quick blended rocker combines the speed needed to make any wake transfer seem effortless, with more kick than a traditional continuous rocker. Since winning the WWA World Championship in 1999, Chad Sharpe has been synonymous with coming out of a turn with his tires squealing, hard charging signature style. His approach earned him the biggest air ever recorded at the annual Parks double up contest. Carrying more angle into the wake, and landing further out in the flats with a sharp 45 degree rail from end to end creating more effective edge with the water. A rockerline that mimics the natural transition of the wake, carrying more speed up the kicker, a sidecut that has more contact points in the water, and fin placements that allow the board to react as quickly as any rider can control it. Last year, we went to a 1/2 wider belly with a similar tip/tail width vs. his previous boards - the additional sidecut just adds to the speedy vortex of Shangri-La Chad was looking for. Effortless high speed carves and a fast/explosive hybrid rockerline - a board you never have to worry about keeping up with.
Not only a hard charging rider like former Alliance Rider of the Year Chad Sharpe can appreciate a responsive and supportive open toe boot. Lay into these boots and they will drive the utmost control into the board so that you can feel more confident in the ride under yourfeet - yet still have the versatility of fitting multiple feet sizes. The open toe Viva can easily be shared with most anyone in the boat - without sacrificing the support or control that a pro or aspiring enthusiast might demand. This high speed open toe boot is the perfect blend of performance and versatility as well as being partially constructed from your favorite 16.9 oz natural spring container. If you are looking for a boot that will offer you and anyone in your boat a great ride, then look no further than the Viva. Live it up with our new Stage 2 lined creations!
