i'm looking for a wakeboard that's virtually indestructable.

shredding stony beaches - hitting hard objects -
being careless with the board ...

heavy weight (3-4kg) and zero flex is no problem.

is there any shaper/board that can satisfy my needs?

The Pitbull from Litewave. It's the only wakeboard I know of with a snowboard bottom material made to ride on rocks.

yup, pitbull is the way to go. I,ve nailed one on the base fully loaded onto a submerged rock stopping the board and ripping me out of bindings... fully busted me thought. Just a scratch in fact. The 2002 has a true 3 stage rocker and nice progressive flex. Huge wind range getting going surprisingly early. This year I've had little use for my 169 copared to running the old pitbull.

Look out for the new 137 out early next year.

New Litewaves will have flame graphix and 6 fin config as well as offset inserts so you can 'duck' std footstraps.
