Since winning the WWA World Championship in 1999, Chad Sharpe has been synonymous with coming out of a turn with his tire squealing, hard charging signature style. An approach that earned him the biggest air ever recorded at the annual Parks double up contest. Carrying more forward momentum off the wake landing further out in the flats, the Viva has 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 you.
