The O’Brien Vortex Combos are our “Big-Daddy” wide-body pair. These skis are designed for super easy deep-water starts and big, carving turns, at minimal effort.
The extra surface area reduces drag and provides a huge amount of lift to get bigger skiers up on the plane with ease. The large surface area also allows for skiing at a slower, more comfortable boat speed.
A side benefit is it takes less horsepower to get skiers on the Vortex up and out of the water; making it easier to teach deep-water slalom starts.
When there’s any doubt about getting out of the water on a pair of skis, go with the O’Brien Vortex Combos. These are as close to a sure thing as you're going to find.
