echelon wavemag 3d base

I am really calling on BA or anyone else that has heard of the new echelon wavemag 3d base. It is on the new Overload board and it looks badass well t least graphics wise.

Yeah that is what I was thinking also, I figured they just add some camber sections in to the board under the inserts. I am hoping it will be like the orion flex wise and help with the tip flapping with some bamboo or carbon.

I really want to ride a 3d base echelon but my dumb feet are too big :/ I might give the killbox a try though (i think i could get away with that)

It's actually MagWave not Wavemag.

The boards are going to be 100% different than anything in the past due to a whole new factory and designer. The only thing that is the same is the inserts.

Anyways Magwave is one of those visual techs you'll see if you look down the side of the board. It's still relatively new and there's only 3 or 4 boards with it in the world right now. Nivek has one sitting at his house with the Echelon rep/rider. Expect a full review of it some time this summer after I get a chance to ride their new decks at the end of this month through the end of the season.

Nah they learned it was actually better to leave the hair on and grease it with a mixture of rainbow extract, gnome blood, griffin mucus, hippogriff tears, and ground up leprechaun teeth. You've seen Christmas Vacation? Yeah, fast like Chevys saucer sled.

MagWave operates as a Heisenberg compensator; when you land it calculates the quantum interactions between your edge and the snow or surface, and ensures that the wave-function collapse favors probabilities during those interactions towards those in which a trick is landed.
