Shawn Watson's Substance series was Liquid Force's top seller last year, for good reason. The board not only rides well if you're a pro, it also works well for the rest of us. It's designed for the rider looking for loads of vertical pop, smooth transitions, and a responsive yet mellow approach to the wake.
There are some changes to Shawn's ride this year. He's added some thickness to the nose and tail for strength, and also ran the molded in side fins a bit farther back on the tail for extra control. The sizes have changed as well, fitting more into what we think is the perfect size Matrix. We've basically taken his perfect board, and made it more perfect.
