Product Info

This beauty is definitely on the vanguard of wakeboard engineering. The Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard has tons of features for strong toe edge holds and quick response time. As your skills progress you can change out the 1.3” fins to the 0.8” fins for a different toe side feel. Even though it’s built for the most experienced riders, the Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard is designed to evolve with you no matter what your skill level.

Product Details

Construction

The Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard was designed by one of wakeboarding’s greatest innovators Greg Nelson. It is made of layered glass with Monocoque Construction, which fuses the bottom and top layers together creating a more resilient board. The core is constructed of Hyperlite’s own specially concocted Bio2 Core they have been perfecting since the beginning.

Rocker and Base Features

The subtle 3-Stage rocker allows for a good pop off the wake and the Molded-in Anti-slip Fin gives you a more controlled carve

Molded in anti slip fin

2 removable 1.3” Disorder toe side fins

4 removable .8” Poly A-Wing heel side fins

Rails/Edges

Cut with a Variable Edge Design and Toe Side Channel Extensions for improved toe side edge hold.

Additional Features

Counterbalancing top contours, reduced swing weight, Molded in Toe Side Footbed Risers and Asymmetrical Package Specific Shape give the Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard one of the best engineered designs for boarders at any level.

It is a good board for all skill levels. I'm new to wakeboarding but after a few times it is now a ease to get up. On the other end my father-in-law has been riding for many years and said that the center spine makes it sit out of the water better and the design of the board cuts good even without fins. Also do to the design or is of the center spine it alows you to turn easily. The board is made to go easily go toe side not sure if that is true or not but I have no problem going toe side with the board.all in all good board.

          I am just starting out and found this board to be confidence inspiring. I am a little on the heavier side for a 139, but the board still works out great! I found it has great pop and it's lightweight too! Definitely not disappointed.

            This board is great for ANYONE. It holds a toe side edge wonderfully with the extra molded fins and the raised foot bed. It is super smooth to ride. This board will not have as much pop for a beginner, but an advanced rider will have no problem getting air. The board lands great as well; is very stable.

              Coming from other hyperlite boards this was a great transition. Went to a slightly shorter board. Allows easier jumps and monuvering. lots of fun for the intermediate as well as the beginer. two thumbs up

                    GOOD Beginner Board!!! I'm 42 y/o and NEVER wakeboarded (but can paddleboard/skateboard/snowboard ok). Tried this board and was able to stand and carve without catching an edge after only about 10 mins of use. Next day, I was jumping wakes (no flips)! Board is STABLE and TRACKS WELL with the included fins. PRICE can't be beat!

                    I ordered the 139 cm. am 5'11" and 165-170 lbs. Riding behind a MasterCraft X35

                        Great all around board. I ride it without the fins and the smaller fins, depending on conditions and what kind of riding I'm doing. Awesome board for the price, and I have had beginners to experts try my board. All of them liked this board and had nothing bad to say about it.

                            I have been riding a CWB board for years and decided to try this one. I like it better because of the two smaller fins on each end rather than one in the middle. Tracks easy and more stable. I was reluctant to purchase because of some reviews stating it was heavy. It weighs 7 lbs. same as my CWB. Plenty of air when jumping if you know what your doing. Also spins easily when doing surface tricks. Very satisfied with the ride quality!

                              I started wakeboarding two years ago on a wakeboard my parents bought as a complete. It was too heavy, too large, and just not great. I decided to buy my own and chose the forefront... After using it awhile, i came to love it. It is an awesome, easy to use board. It will adapt to many diffrent levels of riders, from beginners, to experts.

                                  Great board, don't hesitate to buy a couple years older model - it was good value for the money.

                                      I'm a 6'2" female. I'm athletic but at my height, it's been hard for me to get up on some smaller boards while still having a board light enough to have fun on. This board is perfect for me. It has enough stability to give me confidence but also is light with plenty of rocker, grab & pop to evolve with me as I improve. In just the few weeks I've used it, I'm already getting more height on my jumps and feeling more confident with tricks. I'm sure I'll enjoy this board for many years. I paired it with the Hyperlite Remix Black/White Bindings. Perfect!

                                      If you look for a good dependable board I would definitely go with this hyperlite board. I have taught a lot of beginners on this board and it has worked well for them so if you just learning you can use this board as well. Overall its very user friendly whether being a beginner or advanced its a good board for all.

                                                    Worth the price for a wakeboarding beginner.

                                                        Upgraded to this board from an old O brien. WOW what a difference. This board works great all around. Rides nice in the rough and makes edging a lot easier. My riding improved significantly after the first ride. For the price its hard to beat IMO! Also the pics dont do the board justice. Its looks a lot nicer in person! Only down side for me is like most things these days its made overseas. Hopefully is holds up for the next few years.

                                                          Love this board and the way it looks. For the price, I don't think you can beat it. Comes with a few different sets of fins, which is nice. Larger fins on the toe-side actually makes a difference. Transitions between natural and switch are super easy. Grips the water when I want it to, unhooks easily when I want to butter.

                                                          Clean jumps with good pop because of the 3 stage rocker.
