looks promissing.

Kakalana, thanks for all the info. Very relevant after all :wink: . I am about the same weight, depends on the winter. This one was a bit too long and too cold. Too heavy for me. :worry:
Can't wait to get on the board again. As you can see from my flood of question, can't wait to try new toyz.

cheers

Got one of the original red 120 Blunts Proto's as well as the latest 125, 130 and 135. They are pretty sweet in terms of design / graphics. Pretty big concave.

Super light. On the stiffer side however these are not the final-finals...

My understanding is they will have more rocker and a little more flex.

The pads and straps seen in the pics are a preliminary design. Still going through some adjustment.

I have seen some of the newer pad and strap designs on one of Shawns boards and I can assure you they are the bomb.

Super Comfy!

And the boards are made out of....HAHAHAHA bet you want to know! 8)

Hang on...they are just around the bend. The patience will be worth it. :bye:

I have just received the new pads and straps and they are great, pics on page one, super comfy but not too quishy if you know what I mean. They are inline with all the other Wainman equipment in the way that you know someone who actually spends a lot of time on the water has sat down and thought long and hard about the design and the chosen materials.

My guess for a light and stiff core material would be BAMBOO? Am I right? Do I win a free 135x43?

It's got to have a hemp core.
