Creating a shape to take riders’ skills to the next level was the goal behind the State 2.0. Learning from other asymmetrical designs, HL found that creating a shorter but more effective edge on a rider’s toe-side made hard to learn wake jumps a lot easier. This is because there is less rail to initiate when applying toe-side pressure. Once set, the smoother toe-side transition is then held by the State 2.0’s thinner profile molded-in fins, creating less drag and a better release off the top of the wake. Subtle Molded-In Toe-Side Footbed Risers were also added to help a rider create more leverage when pressure is applied. The longer, more traditional heel-side edge compliments this asymmetrical design by allowing the natural body position of a rider to generate stability and speed into the wake without a loss of pop due to reduced surface area. The State 2.0 has been tested and proven to be the best choice for a rider looking to master the foundations of wakeboarding.
