Special things are coming. Yes, word will get out on construction, however we want to make sure things are 150% on design and what we like and of course what the public wants.

Yes, this is vague, but would hate to say construction is one way when the final design will be different.

Should have more demos coming that are availabe for public riding pleasure. Full production is not far. Will be available for start of season which is soon.

Blunts are 120, 125, 130 & 135.

If someone is interested in custom lunch tray shorty below the 120 blunts, give me a shout and things can be done on a custom basis.

We will have latest Wainman Hawaii boards for demo at Kite Expo in Pismo Beach, California - Pacific Coast at the end of March. Give me a shout for more info or specific req's.

Wind is coming!

:bye: :thumb: :thumb: ... You scored some nice pics...!!

Blunts are a super nice ride... gets thorugh choop so good.. super tip to tip concave makes finless riding steady ... Also superb contruction materials make a lightweight "joint" blunt board that will also make you lightheaded :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: ..look out for.... good things are coming\

I rode the 135 and 130 at the Pismo Beach kite expo courtesy of Chris at Kitenaked 2 weekends ago. There is a vast improvement over the last round of demo/proto boards. There is alot more rocker, the pads are super cush (I did not like the original pads), and the boards are even lighter. Chris had the last proto boards next to the new ones and it is obvious this is a completely different board.

The wind was a bit light, but I was able to get a few good pops and the board loads nicely. I was not able to really open it up, but I am definitely considering these for my 2009 board purchase.

I currently ride a Slingshot Lunacy and have not found something that pops so well to replace it with. Hopefully I will get a head to head comparison with sufficient wind soon.

Not very good reviewing stuff but heres my first quick impression :
Just got a blunt 125/ 39 board 2 weeks ago, been riding for over a week now in a variety of winds from14 to 24 knots. I
the board is extremely light and thin; medium flex, the board is shaped into a concave comfortable thick pads easy to adjust. Good quality finish nice and glossy on the pad side, and an interesting matte finish on the fin side. The board comes with a nice quality board bag and a pouch for your fins and screws.
The center handle feels a little flimsy because of the screw size, just get a wider screw head and it should be fine; anyways I never attach them.

In my humble opinion this is a very "technical" board, it takes awhile to brake in and tame. If you get it right the pop/speed/upwind is simply beyond amazing. It might me a handful in choppy waters but I actually a lot more fun than my 132 flx which feels too "stable" in comparison. This is a wild board better be ready to handle it!

What is the recommended size for weight?
i'm 85kg, riding in a whole range of conditions from flat/choppy/waves,
Thinking of the 130 x 40.5 or 125x 39, but have always ridden smaller boards 38cm max, but wider seems to be the norm these days!
anyone have any experience?
Thanks
