The 2014 Liquid Force Overdrive is designed for light wind performance and the bigger rider in mind. The flatter rocker and width from tip to tip allow you to get a board that is easy to start on, and you will still enjoy it in the lighter conditions as you graduate down to a smaller all around twin tip.

What we like:
The REAL Lesson Center absolutely loved the Liquid Force Drive
due to the edge control and ease of use, but when it came to the lighter conditions and bigger riders, the Drive was not wide enough. Liquid Force listened and added some length and extra width to the Drive series and birthed the Overdrive. The Overdrive is really easy for the first time beginner of any size because they are super wide and stable. The flat bottom and lower rocker makes this board jam up wind and some how it still remains smooth through chop.
What we don't like:
The Overdrive can be kind of stiff for light people. The stiffness is great if you are over 180lbs, but if you are light and the wind comes up, you will find the Overdrive to be a bit of a handful. The Overdrive is a well rounded light wind board, but if you want the ultimate light wind performance, check out the Spleene Door and Monster Door
Why you want the 2014 Overdrive:
A lot of riders are buying the Overdrive from REAL as their first board because they know they will not out grow it. Once you progress to riding a smaller board, the Overdrive will stay in your quiver as your dedicated light wind board.
