A board that’s too flexible won’t work behind the boat. Too stiff and a board won’t work great on cable and obstacles. The Paradigm is proof that one board really can do it all! The perfect flex needed was achieved by combining O’Brien’s famous fusion core technology with the Paradigm’s heavily ribbed cross-section and tapered geometry. The result is a board that is rigid between your feet, but with a flexible tip & tail. This combination gives you incredible energy through the wake, and the ability to press any obstacle in front of you. The Paradigm has uniquely proven that one board can, in fact, do it all. If your quiver has room for just one board, this could be the ultimate answer.
