The Livewire is the kind of board that takes wakestyle to a new dimension. You must know that the 2014 Livewire has been developed by the Airush shapers team in collaboration with Alex Pastor, Bruna Kajiya and Bas Koole, some of the best riders in the world, so it is guaranteed to deliver no compromise performance out on the water.

With the 2014 Airush Livewire you can dominate elite competitions or enjoy a fantastic session each time you desire. This is a wakestyle oriented board, but the refined flex and response also provide a very good freestyle potential. It provides the rider with maximum pop and upwind performance and can handle difficult conditions like chop with ease.

The compact profile makes it very dynamic and easy to control. The Livewire features a new rail and tip channel configuration which boosts the directional drive. At the same time, tapered ABS rail provides superior durability. The Airush Livewire features a progressive dual rocker. Smaller sized models feature a slightly flatter rocker to boost acceleration, while larger sized models use an increased rocker to provide a more solid boot riding experience. The flatter rocker on the outer rail improves edging and upwind performance, while the higher center rocker section maximizes the load for a better wake performance.

Airush has crafted the Livewire using a Multizone Biotech construction based on a vertical wood core sandwich comprising of a dual density Balsa and Poplar core with ABS rail and tips. The wood core provides unmatched response and durability. This structure is wrapped in tri axial laminate layers to maximize strength.

The Livewire runs particularly well in less than ideal conditions, especially in chop. It's smooth and controllable and doesn't spray like crazy. However, in heavy chop, it doesn't run very fast. Another thing I like about it is that it...more
