Melissa is one of the best female riders in the world and continues to charge things year after year that impress anyone that has ever ridden, male or female. She needs a board that excels equally well behind the boat or dropping large gaps with her WSR crew. She's found that in the Melissa Hybrid... This year's model is her first "true" Hybrid and
features the tech that our other Hybrids have that has changed the industry standard for high end performance. With the LF Exclusive Liquid Rails, it's ready for any punishment Melissa or any aggressive rider dishes out. Not wanting to abandon the smooth behind the boat feel, Melissa kept the aggressive continuous rocker in the shape for a smooth and consistent pop off the wake. For the multi faceted rider wanting the best of both worlds, look no further then the Melissa Hybrid!

The Melissa Pro Binding continues to be the top selling women's pro model in the industry and steps up again with a new chassis design for 2012 giving a lower, more responsive feel. The Velcro closure system, first brought to market from the mind of Melissa, returns and continues
to give any rider a wide range of flex options. Crank it down to blast off the wake, or loosen the top strap while jibbing at your favorite wake park (or dropping massive water gaps like Melissa). No other binding offers such a unique style… just the right mix of cute and cool.
