Jimmy LaRiche at Nav Co

The Navigation Company up in Conneaut Lake is having a Hyperlite Demo day with Pro rider Jimmy LaRiche on Thursday, June 16th 2011. Unfortunately I have a Statistics midterm that same day so I will be unable to make it but you should go. They will have a ton of Hyperlite gear for you to try including the new Hyperlite System boots and Jimmy’s new pro model board the “Franchise”. I got to ride the System boots a couple weekends ago in Columbus and I was impressed.

Here are the details from NavCo:

Wondering what these new system bindings are like? Are they a worthy upgrade to your current setup? Why not come and see for yourself why Jimmy Lariche and his System Bindings work so well at dominating the sport. We are going to hold this event on Conneaut Lake right next to the shop Thursday June 16th. Total of 16 slots available at $20 for a half hour slot. Don’t worry, for $20 you can hang out at the dock all day and swim, ride the stand up, surf, check out the new gear and get some tips from Jimmy. The conditions should be great as far as boat traffic, we hope that it won’t rain.. If it does and we have to cancel than of course we will refund your $20. As always get ready for an awesome 2011 summer with the Navigation Company!

Here are the details on the video above:

Jimmy LaRiche has developed his first Pro Model for Hyperlite, the Franchise! The name of the board touches on Jim’s importance to the Hyperlite team but it also represents his philosophy about the shape. The goal was to create a long lasting, innovative shape that everyone can hop on and in one ride feel as if they are home. A continuous rocker of 2.65” lays the foundation for a fast board that carves and edges with ease. The Franchise rocker is largest continuous rocker in the Hyperlite line providing maximum pop off the wake. The innovative and industry first Tapered Channels narrow at the tip and tail aligning the Dual Fin Configuration to increase the boards edge hold on approach to the wake. With any approach style, the Franchise will deliver a pop off the wake like no other. The overall profile of the board and reduced tip and tail profile reduce swing weight for simple rotation on flat and inverted spins. On landings we found that Jim never touched down dead flat, the Franchise incorporates 2 soft landing spins for cushy entries on either edge. Shaped by Greg Nelson for our Franchise rider, the LaRiche Pro Model will provide any Wakeboarder an unforgettable ride.
