BLACK REVOLT Wakesurf is the story of a 14-year-old passion for wakesurfing. I rode my first board (Hyperlite Landlock) in 2003 and that’s when I caught the Wakesurf virus.
Black Revolt is born from a simple observation: the majority of wakesurf boards that can be found in France and Europe are manufactured overseas.
Why make our wakesurf boards in other countries while we can do it here in France?
All BLACK REVOLT Wakesurf are handmade in France and USA by our shapers in their workshops with the best materials available on the market. Our shapers both have more than 20 years of experience in the manufacture of Surf and skim Boards and our models are designed in close collaboration between the shapers, the riders and myself.
We only manufacture “premium” boards. At BLACK REVOLT Wakesurf we use only the best quality materials, for example the foams used for our “surf style” Eps/Epoxy boards are MARKO Foam made in USA, our fins and fins boxes are from FUTURE FINS and made in USA and our traction pads come from AGENDA SURF in San Diego California.
Alain – Black Revolt Wakesurf
Wakesurf is a water sport in which the (wake) surfer ride on the wave produced by a boat without being attached to it (except for the departure). The waves produced by the boats used to make wakesurf are relatively similar to those of the ocean but alittle bit smaller. Wakesurfers slide on the wave like surfers on a wave to the ocean. Black Revolt manufactures Premium Custom Wakesurf boards specially designed for this practice.
