Yes, the Huckleberry really does ride for Never Summer and this is the board designed with his input to his exacting standards. Jimmy LaRiche knows wakeboards. He also knows wakeboarders. Turns out what Jimmy needs in a board is pretty universal, and awesome, for every rider. With a snowboard feel on edge, consistent pop off the wake, and the forgiveness needed to perfect your next big trick Jimmy knows what you should be riding. Beginners to mega pros should all do what Jimmy says...ride Rich! Because snow melts.
