Product Info

Designing a new shape to carry the Marek name was a process that took months of development. The volume of the Hyperlite Marek Nova Wakeboard has been reduced by 15%, making it lighter than the original generation. This deluxe version also features slightly mellower base features resulting in a quicker release off the wake allowing a rider to initiate a trick sooner. Experience the new and improved Nova and witness the evolution first hand.

Comments about Hyperlite Marek Nova Wakeboard 2012:

If you are buying this board becuase you loved the 2011 and older Meraks you are in for some changes. This board does have some of the old boards qualties but you will need to take some time to get to know her as it is not the same old thing. This board is very flexable and gives you a lot of feed back from the water where the older Meraks where like running a battle ship through small chop and ripple and giving great pop and a sold firm landing with little or no flex precived. With the new 2012 you need to adjust your aproch and change your timing as it has way more flex and you need to roll the board out on take off to get the same pop the older board gave on edge. The landings are also much smoother as the board will flex to cushoin the landing. I also found the need to move my stance in as the board flex made it a bit harder to get the proper knee and leg angle in my normal full out wide stance. the board does turn quicly and build speed like the old Meraks but by centering your weight unlock very quickly also. I might have given this board all stars but it is sort of like we are on the first date and I need to spend some qualty time to get to know the ins and outs. I also found the board reacts much different with boot changes soft to stiff where older Meraks with out the flex where much less sencative to such changes i guess this board is much more tunable with stance and boot than others
hope my 2 cents helps you make your choice easyer

          Comments about Hyperlite Marek Nova Wakeboard 2012:

          Awesome shape, still holding true to the original marek. Extremely fast and aggressive good for intermediate-pro riding level. Strata track is a thing of beauty. Only complaint is that it has a little more flex than I expected, so I've had to narrow my stance a bit. Bottom line, this board kills it.
