Together with our customers, we develop individual features on request. In the process, the customer contributes their ideas and we contribute our years of know-how in feature construction. The end result is a new part that is always something very special.
In the case of the West Rock Customs, there are now five individual features to choose from. We talked to Daniel Jarrett, the owner of the wakepark on the west side of Chicago.
How did you come up with the idea for a custom rail?
I wanted to have that snowboard slopestyle feel on the water, and have a versatile park that we could change up. As a park owner you only get one chance to make a first impression, and I didn’t want to take our initial investment and make the wrong decision. David from UNIT was super patient and helpful the whole time. I dreamed up the idea after seeing Danny Davis’ Peace Park, where there was a pump track section at the beginning. So I wanted rainbows, unbows, a mix of rails and boxes — essentially creating that pump track on the water. I wanted them to cover every skill level and have all the features be interchangeable.
