Cutboarding is the next step in aggressive water sports. These boards handle the water with the finesse of a slalom ski, but keep the smooth wakeboarding stance. Cutboards are hand-wrapped in a state of the art facility. Performance is our top goal, which can only be achieved through quality.
The new and exciting recreational sport of Cutboarding was born out the elements of water skiing and wakeboarding. These early beginnings come from the founder of the sport and Co-owner of Rocott, Klynt Marcusse, and his passion for the water. Growing up riding almost anything that can be towed behind a boat, Klynt found an opportunity in boarding that he felt should be pursued. This is speaking of the break between the slalom aspect of water skiing and the sideways stance of boarding. Klynt had a dream to bridge this gap, cutboarding.
The cutboard has been hand carved out of wood and foam, molded out of fiberglass, and made in numerous garages. Now as demand has risen, production must rise too. We now have our boards made in a state of the art manufacturing facility where quality is still maintained at the same level that the first boards achieved.
Construction of the cutboard starts with a high density foam core at its inner foundation. The wrapped core construction of the board is layered in a 22 oz. Tri-axial fiberglass. This shell is the component that gives the board its strength in its structure. The top of the board is a high-strength PBT sheet. This stronger topsheet was found to be necessary in allowing the board to stand up to the forces that it will endure during a typical ride. The bindings on the board attach using a standard 6" insert spread, just like the same inserts that are found on nearly any standard wakeboard. This allows for any preference of bindings to be used on the cutboard.
The design of the board shows the origins of its creation. The board can be seen to be substantially thinner than a wakeboard, but still maintains a length of 67", similar to the length of a standard ski. The cutboard has a continual rocker which allows for the arcing slalom cuts to be performed. The board hugs the water due to the double concave design found on the bottom of the board. This increases the entry angle of the bottom rails of the board. The double fin design of the board is also crucial to its design as both are necessary for being able to trust a maneuver on either side of the wake.
