O'Brien Intent Wakeboard

Supercharged Performance

The Intent is the epitome of a performance boat board. It's fast, insanely responsive, has the explosiveness of a rocketship, and lands softer than an astronaut doing jumping jacks on the moon. While riding flat, it's loose and lively but put it on edge, and a mind-warping connection between you and the board builds as it morphs into an all-out wake charging machine. From this feeling on the water to the explosiveness off the wake, the Intent is in a league of its own, capable of elevating everyone's perception of what's possible on a board.

3-Stage Rocker

This rocker line is generally flatter between the bindings, but dramatically angles upward towards the tip and tail. This explosive rocker line generates a more aggressive and vertical pop off the wake.

Wake Graphs
2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Feather Core

Feather Core

Feather Core reduces the board’s swing weight for more midair control, while simultaneously maintaining its profile up the face of the wake for maximum pop.

2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Vector Net

Vector Net

Provides a high level of break and buckle resistance while maintaining a natural and lively flex pattern.

2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Variable Beveled Edge

Variable Beveled Edge with Full Step-Down Rail

Delivers a smooth, relaxed feel while riding flat, but once on edge it's as aggresive as they come.

2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Spine

Center Spine

The "V" shape of the spine disperses water outwards upon impact resulting in softer landings.

2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Delta Base

Delta Base

“Chevron” shaped channels molded into the tip and tail of the board that reduce drag for faster edging and a cleaner release off the wake.

2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Grab Rail

Grab Rail

Channeling on top of the board that makes it easier to lock onto grabs; also makes the board easier to carry.

2023 O'Brien Intent Feature Focus Inset Fins

Inset Fins

Set into the nose/tail contouring of the board, these four removable fins work in conjunction with the base features for the ultimate high-performance ride.
