O’Brien showcased both its future and its history at Surf Expo this past weekend. While inside the booth contained all the cool, new products for 2014, the outside of the booth was decorated with many items from throughout O’Brien’s 50-year history. There were some classic slalom skis that pioneered the sport, wakeboards that now make you scratch your head, and much more. All of them guaranteed to bring back some great memories to anybody who has been involved in water sports and boating in the past half century. Highlights for the new 2014 wake line though include a new series of wakesurfers, a new signature board from the Breddas crew in Sweden, and a ladies’ version of the popular Contra shape.
