Trident Wakesurf Board
(Texalium, $635, Carbon, $709; phase5boards.com)
The new Phase 5 Trident wakesurf board is designed to float the big boys and still provide plenty of performance. Instead of loading the Trident up with tons of foam, Phase Five kept its profile trim but shaped it with a broad belly and tail — 22 inches at its widest — to keep the Trident fast regardless of the size of the rider. Choose between the Texalium pro fiberglass layup or the super-quick Carbon fiber.
