I had a chance to try out the proto -types and loved them, a few tweaks on and the production models came along. I am probably putting my head on a block here but I would go as far to say the 130 Blunt weighing in at 2 kg naked and bullet proof is "probably" the finest board ever made so far. Just get one you CAN'T go wrong, sites looking good.
Chris dont be so gay! the wainman boards are a breathe of Fresh Air to kiteboarding, everything is already pretty Dull! if you want to ride older gear go get yourself a Rebel and a Xride.
but kiteboarding is all about fun and wainman have put that back in sport.
i think the 130 and 135 should be in the 120 graphics they look so sweet.
so just enjoy the ride
That made me laugh. Really. You can read alot into that. And I don't mind being gay. Honest. It was funny because the point of my post was that I felt the whole WH thing targets the young'uns who say stuff like, "don't be gay". I just don't think the marketing works so well. When you grow up, you hit a stage where you see past the marketing hype and you just want to know the facts. I just wondered why the countdown. I'd like to see WH do well, because I think their kite range offers something different - innovation. And I think that the kiters that make or break this new company won't be the ones who say "... don't be gay". Anyway, I enjoyed the post. Way off topic now - gotta spend some quality time with my poodle.
I rode one the other day from a friend in La Parguera, Puerto Rico. I was super lit on a 11m Fuel at around 19 knots and the board felt nice, that thing is super thin! and light. Really the thinnest board I have ever seen.
