Dean-O out did himself with the Darkside.... This board does everything Dean wants, cuts fast, pops huge, lands solid, and can take a beating. But it also does everything us mere mortals need, has amazing glide speed (so we dont get out of breath in 3 minutes), and a smooth predictable flex pattern (its fun to say we want a board with insane pop, but most of us cant take it, or the landings anymore - the new intelligent 2 core knocks the edge off the pop, making it easy for us to handle and makes landings something we can all walk/ride away from). You don't have to love Vegimite to love the Darkside.
What Ronix says:
3-STAGE MEETS SNOWBOARD STYLE TAKE OFF
The ultra-smooth, delayed take off counterpart to our other 3 stage series – the One board. In nearly 30 years of making wakeboards we have never developed a boat board with such a stored energy takeoff as this new Darkside. A new shape that gives you that vertical/explosive takeoff of your favorite 3 stage board – but is designed for riders that have patience driving up the wake for more of a tail heavy lift – or just want a smoother take off and more feedback and control on the water with our all wood/urethane constructed Intelligent 2 Core. A chance to ride your wakeboard like a snowboard.
