Have you ever wondered what a rocker line is or why it is important to know when buying a new wakeboard? Here we give a breakdown of rocker lines and rocker lines with wakeboards. In this breakdown, you will learn what each specific rocker line is, and what they do, and you can see different boards for each style of rocker line.

3 - Stage 

An exaggerated rocker line with a larger arc and a higher degree provides a more straight-up explosive pop. This style of rocker creates more of an instant buck off the wake, for riders that are behind a big boat wake. Wakeboarders riding behind smaller wakes will still feel like they are getting a solid kick as well. 

Continuous

An earlier arc with a mellower degree will have a smoother, more consistent glide up the wake. A rider will be able to carry more speed up the transition and land tricks farther out into the flats. Not quite the straight-up snap of its counterpart, but they'll have a faster, more predictable, effortless takeoff. 

 

Hybrid

A combination of the traits of 3 - Stage and Continuous rocker lines. Designed for a high-end rider that, depending on how they edge into the wake, the rocker will dictate what style of snap they will have. Also, for a mid-level rider that isn't sure what style of hangtimes they are looking for.
