Need a new freeride board

Postby darken » Wed May 15, 2013 9:05 am

I've been looking around a bit and found 3 interesting boards:
North Jaime Pro
Wainman Hawaii Blunt 2
RRD Poison LTD V2

Anyone tried them?
Any other suggestions?

Ah this old chestnut again. Do a search on this a post not long ago went for a fair few pages with suggestions.

Have to add the monk and the mako in there. But details and plenty more options are on this thread. Depends on what you mean by freeride, it has a wide definition depending on the rider and the conditions and the kite they use.

I've just tried out the jamie. It gets good reviews, and for sure a ok board.
But I prefer my new Best Armada v4 8) superlight and a great feel! Try to demo and find what you like :)

Brokite freeride 134. Best freeride board you can put on your feet.

name, shmame, brokite has the quality and tech of $1000 rip-off boards,
but they don't charge $1000.
And they will do custom graphics for the fashion victims, why not give 'em a try?

The Xenon Range is top notch and you get a 2 year warranty !
For freeride look for the Rayo.

One more for the Aboards Z series! Uber high-quality, slays in all conditions and feels small on your feet (very low swing weight) no matter the size.
