"Best bindings I've ever owned."
Designed with progression in mind, this board is a favorite for beginner to intermediate wakeboarders.
"Designed to help a new rider."
This versatile all-carbon surf style wakesurf board is great for all of your slashing needs.
"It's a very versatile board."
" This board is great for riders who ride both cable and behind the boat. It's a perfect hybrid board for those who can't buy two separate boards. It has great pop and your landings are super soft. I am mostly a cable rider and I get great pop and flex off features in the park but it also holds it own behind the boat at higher speeds. I like that the board is super light weight. The lightness allows for air tricks and spins with little effort. The continuous rocker shape allows for forgiveness as well. I recommend this board for girls who like to push their riding and progress in both park and behind the boat. It really is a do it all board. The forgiveness and easy transitions from edge to edge makes it a great board for all ability levels from beginner to those throwing inverts."

My favorite thing about this board is that you can ride both cable and boat. Nowadays, companies will make a board specifically for boat or cable, but they forget about those riders like me who compete in both. Julia Rick nailed it with this board design, this board rides smoothly over features in the cable park with almost no stick. On the boat, the rocker profile makes the board ride higher so its harder for you to catch your edge which. It also gets a ton higher of a pop then the 2015 version. Besides the build of this board I love love love the look of it, I feel like I have such a bold personality and so the bold colors of this board are perfect for me. An often over-looked feature that I love is the lining on the edges so they won't fray when you ride in the park (I have had boards fall apart!) Finally, I love the little astronaut on the front of the board that is reflective - it reminds me to shoot for my dreams!

The Eden 2.0 has an asymmetrical design that is designed to help a new rider with their toe side edge without having a hard edge catch. It still pops very nicely. It is a great board to begin and progress on, and fun to cruise on. I wouldn't recommend it for a rider looking to do big tricks, the landings may be a little bit harder.

This board is lightweight, easy to use, and responds very well in rough water. It's a very versatile board that rides well for our crew and our crew ranges from 5 foot 100 pound up to 6'8" and three hundred pounds. I really like the surf style of it because it reminds me of a surfboard you would use in the ocean. Did I mention the color scheme also matches my boat!

I love my Melissa bindings. They are really really comfortable. Easy to take on and off too. My last pair were such a pain to get on and off that I would dread falling on cable and walking all the way back and wrestling to get them back on again. Best bindings I've ever owned. I feel comfortable and supported.
