What We Like:
The Liquid Force Echo has been a shop favorite since the board’s initial release. This board features a profiled wood core which is a single piece of wood that is thinned out towards the nose and tail. The difference in thickness gives the Echo a very responsive flex that is stiffer beneath your feet, and softer in the tips. The stiffer mid section also works with lower rocker in the middle of the board to give the board tons of pop, good upwind efficiency, and it handles hard landings with confidence. The thinner tips, and higher rocker in the tips smooth out chop, smooth landings, and give the board a really playful feel in the water. The softer tips allow you to lean more into your presses whether you are buttering through flat water, or pressed it out on a slider you can expect this board to flex where you want it to, in order to maximize your style!
The Echo features a triple concave that turns into fluted channels at the tips to give this board lots of grip, this help you load your lines with more power, for a more explosive pop off of the water.
The Echo is marketed as Brandon Scheid’s pro model which would lead one to believe that this board is just for the pro wakestyle rider but that is not the truth. The 3 stage rocker makes this board very forgiving, and easy to ride. Compared to many high rocker boards this board is actually very efficient upwind and works well for beginners as well as the pros.
Why you want the Echo:
The Echo is a versatile board that will encourage you to ride faster, pop higher and boost to the moon! This board also comes in a very affordable package, due to the Profiled wood core. The channels are actually split’s in the core, Liquid Force is able to save money in production by not laser cutting the channels and passes the savings right onto you. This is an excellent board designed to be ridden hard, without breaking the bank.

Liquid Force's Description:
From competition to creative free riding Brandon Scheid undeniably is the landlord of the current wakestyle movement. Brandon has been working with master shaper Jimmy Redmon to create a board that will both lock on a slider and deliver explosive pop off the water. The new 2018 Echo Exceeds the standard and will take your riding to the next level. New for this year is the addition of the LF Flex Tip technology to the channeled, profile wood core. This allows for the tips to flex deeper on presses without sacrificing the center board stiffness required to generate pop and handle hard landings. The addition of the Liquid Force Grind base adds durability not just for hitting rails and sliders but also for coarse sand launches. All blended with the proven triple concave to fluted channel bottom contour, high rocker, and sandwich construction, a recipe for the purest of wake style circles.
