The essence of Phase Five Wakesurf Boards was came about over 25 years ago with the founding of Zap Skimboards. People have long been riding skimboards behind boats. Phase Five took the technology of building their skimboards, listened to wakeboarders' feedback, and perfected a finned board that would allow anyone to ride freely behind a wakeboard boat. All Phase Five wakesurfesr are handmade in America to perform. If you are a wakesurf beginner or a seasoned veteran, you should be riding a board from the company who understands what works best on the water, has brought home five world titles, and has been building the wakesurf boards longer than any other.
