Shane Bonifay has been riding for Liquid Force for over 20 years. During that time he has ridden almost every type of board in every type of condition. Rather than carrying a quiver with him on his travels, he prefers a single board that can handle any condition, and the Dose is just that board.
Most recently, Shane has been riding more park than boat, so this board is made with more flex throughout than a typical boat board. This is especially true in the nose and tail of the board, which feature Liquid Rail flex zones, giving the board a more sensitive feel on rails. The bottom is clean and without channels and features a single-to-triple concave off the tips, which provides lots of speed around corners or into wakes.
When Shane is riding behind that boat, he prefers to put on the quad fins that provide more stability and control. LF's new FlexTrack comes standard on this board, providing the ultimate control and feel while edging into the wake or tail pressing a flat bar.
If you're spending more time at the park, but still spend quite a bit of time behind the boat, Shane's version of the Dose will be your ultimate one board quiver.
