On the Maiden, Raimi has been slaying the competition, with 10 World Cup Titles & 2 World Championships to prove it!
Creating the perfect shape for advanced female riders has always been important to Hyperlite. With the help of Raimi Merritt we have created just the board. The Maiden series features a continuous rocker that lays the foundation for a fast board that carves and edges with ease. The Maiden features innovative Tapered Channels narrow at the tip and tail aligning the Dual Fin Configuration to increase the board's edge hold on approach to the wake. This helps to deliver a pop off the wake like no other for any approach style. The thinner profile of the board and reduced tip and tail width minimize swing weight for simple rotation on flat and inverted spins. Combine all of this with our women's specific Satin flex and Dual Molded Landing features and you have a deck perfect for a female ripper.
The first pro wakeboarder to take the reins in the R&D lab was Nelson. With more than 20 years of design success he's polished his philosophy and likes to produce easy riding boards that anyone can be comfortable on right away. Working with Murray, LaRiche and Maur, he's helped them create the pro model wakeboards they cherish. Our Wakeboarding Legend has as much passion for creating boards as he does for riding them.
