This new board took qualities from both water skis and surfboards to create the first wakeboard. Finn marketed his own board and generated a lot of enthusiasm and awareness about the new product, but it really took off when he met Herb OBrien. OBrien owned his own company H. Sports that focused solely on the manufacturing of water skis.
In the late eighties, Finns new sport caught OBriens eye and led OBrien to develop a refined version of Finns wakeboard. He called this new wakeboard the Hyperlite, and it was designed to be of neutral buoyancy. It allowed for easier takeoff in deep waters, which made it simple for even the most novice wakeboarders to participate in the sport. As soon as it hit the market, interest in wakeboarding sky-rocketed.The item "Vintage FINN / OBRIEN Hyperlite Revert Twin 143cm Wakeboard USA Excellent" is in sale since Sunday, August 23, 2020.
