HO Freeride - Men's/Women's
In 2011 Marcus Brown, Dave Wingerter and Bob LaPoint took a different approach to ski design. They stepped back to look at where and how most boaters and waterskiers spent their time. These people weren’t tucked away on private man-made lakes with ski specific boats where most in the competitive waterski community exclusively reside. They were out on larger public lakes, rivers and waterways, behind everything from wakeboard boats to jet skis to fishing boats. From there, the design team developed technology that specifically enhanced the ski experience for free-skiers on these variable water conditions. Since its release in 2012, the Freeride has become the standard in open water waterskiing and continues to encourage waterski exploration the world over.
CLEAN EDGE TAIL
From the heel of the back foot through the tail for added efficiency by reducing drag by 50%.
KID'S SPECIFIC SOFT FLEX
Advanced laminar textured ski base for reduced ski drag and increased ski speed
3D SHARK FIN
NACA Airfoil inspired 3-dimensional fin for more lift and lower drag.
Amazing edge hold when laying down powerful arcs.
Active rocker carving
Water skiers look at the world with a different set of eyes. Every lake, cove, river or puddle we see, we wonder, could we ski here? More often than not, access to the right boat, less than optimum water conditions and not having the right equipment for the job, stop us from exploring the possibility. HO Skis imagines a world where every body of water can be skied! The Freeride was created to do just that! The completely out-of-the-box design of the Freeride has rewritten the rules for water ski speeds, boats and water conditions. The water ski future is now wide open. Where will you take your skiing.
