Top of the line hand craftmanship with the consistency Phase 5 is know for.
The AKU features a 100% hand-shaped, hand-laminated and custom finished shape. Its GatorSkin super tuff Carbon/Aramid glass construction provides an ultra lightweight, super-stiff body provides the speed to launch off of the lip and the strength to withstand the rigors of even the most demanding riders. The rounder, diamond-shape tail design of the AKU provides the launch pad to boost for giant airs and gives the rider the ability to rip the lip off the wake on those big backside slayshes. The AKU is the smoothest spinning surf-style board available today.
The 3-stage rocker pattern gives the AKU rider the ability to turn the board like crazy or lay back and cruise down the lake. The aggressive forward rocker provides instant turn response. The flat mid-rocker acts as an accelerator pedal for big airs and also provides enough speed for average/smaller wakes. The tail rocker section assists the board in its release off of the wake and allows the board to ride "looser" for additional spinning ability. The rounded rail shape in the forward section of the AKU, allows the board to easily set into the wake, providing a sure-footed feel to the rider. As the rail continues toward the tail of the board, it becomes increasingly sharp giving the board added maneuverability.
The Phase 5 Performance Surf Pad provides the AKU rider with the ultimate control platform. Soft, custom diamond-milled EVA material, integrated arch bars with pressure relief pockets and lateral stability contours ensure that the rider sticks to the board's surface at all times. Fins assist in giving the AKU speed down the line and snap in the turns. Phase 5 uses a twin-fin, FCS/Futures fin setup for performance and agility. Each fin is "toed" in just the right amount to add speed and give the board the ability to throw giant buckets of water off of the wake. Phase 5 has brought all of the benefits of a true, custom shaped wakesurf board to the market and has provided the consistency, quality and deliverability of a major wake surf board manufacturer.
Unlike like most surf style boards the AKU, with its GatorSkin super tuff Carbon/Aramid glass layup, is very durable, much more so than other surf-style boards. It can actually be stored in most boats' surf board racks without damage.
