One of the family for a lot of us. Had lots to do with many of us and our early equipment. Changed watersports forever in many ways. We'll miss you Herb.

O'Brien, HO, Hyperlite, Ronix, Radar ..... He was, without a doubt, a key role in the watersports industry.

After blowing out my knee and my orthopedic surgeon told me to stop skiing, I changed over to wakeboarding on a Hyperlite, which I stil have and ride.
And I didnít even know he was affiliated with Ronix and Radar.
There are many stories about the guy, but you have to admit, he was all in!! RIP
