Riding obstacles just got a whole lot easier!
16 November 2015
Riding the cable is becoming more accessible by the day and there are a few things that cause this. First of all: there are more cable parks being opened nowadays. You don’t have to drive for hours to visit a cable park, there’s probably one near your hometown too!
The second reason is the trend of riding obstacles.
Back in the day, air tricks and inverts were hot to do but not everyone likes to take a slam while getting a back edge during a blind judge. When we look at the current state of wakeboarding, you can see that more people like to ride obstacles. Riding obstacles is something that everyone can do, with a bit of practice of course. You can make it as hard as you want. You can do a relaxed 50/50 of the slider but you can also do a 270 on while pressing it out on the same box. The level of difficulty is something that you can decide, perfect to progress your riding!
So riding obstacles is easier to start with but it’s even better when you use our new Jobe EVO bindings. Just ask the new WWA champion Dominik Gührs, he had to say the following about the EVO bindings: When I’m rail riding it gives me more control on the rail and I have a better feeling with it. On the kicker the EVOs gives me a soft and stabile landing which it´s perfect when you go big.
The center mounting system provides the lively and direct feel with the board, so you have the control that Dominik mentioned. While the sneakers provide dampening and softens the landings when you’re sending it on the kickers! So they’re perfect for riding obstacles, whether you’re just starting or are a seasoned veteran. The EVOs are the perfect bindings for hitting up your local park!
