Wipika boards are hard to find

Postby zpguy » Mon Jun 21, 2010 1:22 pm

Last Saturday I was out playing around in the water and a fellow kiteboarder had a weird board. It was an older wipika that was bidirectional, long and skinny. The flat bottom was different as well. It wasn't the best for jumping but utterly amazing for Freeriding in choppy conditions.

I want to buy one. Anyone have one of those boards they want to sell?

Ditto. If anyone has an old Wipika Olry lying around, I'll buy it.

I just sold one. It is an amazing board for one thing--speed.
It is like a bullet.
I sold the Olry.
Don't have any more left.
