Liquid Force Nemesis 108 kid's wakeboard with O'Brien Wakewrap bindings. This is a top-of-the-line kid's children's wakeboard from Liquid Force, one of the best quality and most respected names in wakeboarding. This board is size 108cm, which is the smallest of the kids sizes available. This is a superior board for learning. The board looks like new on top and all the edges are perfect, no dents, no dings, no delamination.
There are a few cosmetic scratches on the bottom, but they more or less blend with the graphics so not noticeable (see photos). For superior tracking and easier starts, this board comes with upgraded 1.5 fiberglass fins installed from a Liquid Force pro model, as the original fins that came with this board were cheap plastic. The O'Brien Wake Wrap bindings are fully adjustable, easy-in easy-out, and are a highlight of this board.
For new learners, they function far superior to the ones that typically come new on kids boards, as I will explain below. The problem with other bindings that you will NOT get with these: The problem with kids boards is they typically come with full high-wrap bindings similar to adult wake boots. These are a hassle to get on, but far worse, kids get often stuck and cannot get their feet out when they fall and can become upside down submerged trapped in their bindings.
If you have taught small kids wakeboarding before, you may have experienced this and know it is terrifying for smaller kids when they are underwater and disoriented and cannot get turned right-side-up, cannot get themselves released from their bindings and cannot get a breath of air. You will NOT have that problem with these O'Brien Wake Wraps, as they are easy-in easy-out and kids can get out of them right away when needed. I've been teaching water sports for decades and so when it was time for my own kid to learn, I immediately ditched the stock bindings and installed these instead. They have worked perfectly every time. These O'Brien Wake Wrap bindings are older but mostly had ben in storage so still in great condition.All velcro sticks tight, ratchets and adjustment points all work great, rubber still soft and pliable, no noticeable deterioration. Another added advantage is the binding mounting plates are canted inward (see photo) for a more natural stance so kids don't have to stand bow-legged when they are learning.
These bindings are highly adjustable and will fit basically anybody from small kids up to adult sizes. My son was 5 years old when he started using these, and they fit him great, but the beauty of this binding design is they are infinitely adjustable.
This board is in great condition. My son learned to ride on this setup at Terminus cable park in Atlanta (see photos), and he also took a few rides behind the boat. Then the board and bindings got left at his grandparents' lake house for a while, and now my son has outgrown them.
Get a good deal on a great board for the new little ripper-in-training. Along with the board and bindings, I also will toss in some Liquid Force stickers (see photo) so your kid can have fun with those. I'll try to toss in a few other stickers as well.Please send me any questions. Happy riding, happy teaching, happy learning! Additional note: I want to add that one of the small plastic pieces that holds down the rubber on one of the bindings cracked a long ago and was replaced with a custom fabricated replacement from a metal shop, and also the rubber was reinforced in this area. The repair is very clean, smooth and professional and not very noticeable, just silver metal on that piece instead of black plastic.
It is a few inches long made of aluminum with stainless steel locknuts. It performs flawlessly and is far stronger than the original.I just noticed that this replacement piece is not visible n any of the photos, so I want to disclose this. This repair is very solid and nothing to worry about. The item "Kids wakeboard Liquid Force Nemesis 108 with bindings" is in sale since Tuesday, July 26, 2016.
