Byerly have been producing the goods since the big dog Scott Byerly helped shape the face of wakeboarding as we know it back in the day pushing it away from a ski sport to a board sport. Under the umbrella of Hyperlite, Scott's brand are well known for being some of the honest and most durable products on the market. This guy knows how to make a good wakeboard that rides well and is as predictable as summertime rain in Wales. The 2018 Brigade is no exception to this rule and is truly a boat board for all occasions. With a carbon kevlar sidewall all the way round it for protection you're never gonna be grimacing when someone drops it out of the back of the car and its blended 3 stage rocker gives you the confidence to charge at the wake knowing your going to get the same release off the water every time you hit it.
