09 Jun It’s Time to Get WEIRD on the Space Rover and Melter Wakeboards
The time has come to GET WEIRD on the 2023 Space Rover and Space Melter!
Since the release of these one-of-a-kind “out of this world” wakeboards, we’ve been blown away by what seems to be an entirely new style of riding that has come as a result. We’ve had difficulties keeping the boards in stock ever since and have seen several riders re-invent their style by switching to a Space Rover or Melter exclusively.
The Space Mob crew has stacked all sorts of content over the winter riding these bad boys, which we are sharing all week on SOCIAL and some of our favorite new “once carrier challenges” with the crew that you can find here on this page. The bottom line is if you haven’t tried one, YOU’RE MISSING OUT!
Be bold, be brave, and get a vintage track suit from the thrift store to complete your new vibe…you can thank us later ; )

“It’s by far THE BEST directional wakeboard that has ever been made…”

The SPACE ROVER
Landing now on a planet near you, the 2023 Space Rover is the 4th rendition of our all-purpose wake-park directional in collaboration with the Space Mob. It’s a symmetrical directional design built for trendsetters who aren’t afraid to be the first of their kind, blazing a new path into the future of wakeboarding… for all of mankind.

The SPACE MELTER
An all-new, futuristic twin tip from the Space Mob, the 2023 Space Melter has a snow-inspired “p-nut” outline. “In the future, all wakeboards will look this way” is the word on the streets from the most progressive wake-park riders in the game. Put the Space Melter on your feet and completely reinvent your riding style!
The feeling you get when riding both shapes is an entirely new standing-sideways experience on the water. It’s exploratory, it’s invigorating, and REFRESHING. The Space Melter and Space Rover deliver a wholly unique experience on the water, with all sorts of riders begging for another lap.
‘I’m normally a straight-up cable guy, but these boards made me want to try new things… like butters.”
— Slingshot Videographer and Rider Steffen Vollert on the 2023 Space Rover & Melter Boards
“In the future all boards will be built this way…”
— Slingshot Pro Rider Quinn Silvernale on the 2023 Space Melter & Space Rover
“It’s Totally Nectar”
— Pro Snowboarder Zeb Powell on the 2023 Space Melter
Zeb Powell is a frequent Valdosta Wake Compound visitor and is unofficially the best snowboard/wakeboard crossover athlete we know. When he wakeboards it only makes sense that it looks like snowboarding on water, so we hooked him up with a Space Melter to see what he thought!
