The SoZo is preferred by many top kneeboarders in the world! The clean, efficient shape initiates turns easily, edges up the wake with a clean release, and is very forgiving. O’Brien’s Fusion Core (wood stringers within a foam core), is CNC machined to exacting specifications, giving the board a liveliness and lightness like no other. Sandwich Construction makes for the optimum flex pattern, storing energy and releasing it perfectly at the wake. The SoZo is explosive, lightweight and unbelievably maneuverable. The SoZo pad is state-of-the-art, too. It is extremely, supportive, fully customizable, and softens landings like no pad ever seen.
