O’Brien worked continuously to hone the Baker into one of the most performance-oriented board available. Whether winching or free riding, we are constantly pushing the envelope of what is possible. In a quest to continually improve, the flex in the tip and tail was increased, the volume and height of the molded fins was reduced, and the subtle tracking channels through the midsection were added. These changed resulted in a lighter board that tracks and presses with greater authority. These changes, combined with the bulletproof impact base, make the baker a hugely popular board with riders worldwide.
